Catalina hasn't Claude's mobile phone number but she always calls CJ instead of Claude. But how she knows his name if he's mute? Claude had to tell it. And also, there's the trailer of GTA III, which Claude says "Get out of the car!". Here's it: . It means Claude ain't a mute, he just doesn't talk.

claude uses a pager in GTA 3 not a phone
- Because It adds an extra element of mystery and awesome badassness to the badass that is Cluade speed (lame name for such a badass)
- Maybe they could not find a voice actor wit an awesome enough voice to fit and suit claude
and GTA 3 is 9 yrs after SA, SA is where they met, 9 lears later in LC (III era LC) the events of GTA 3 take place, really I thought this would have been obvious maybe just a mistake on your part we all make them (reason I had to edit)
I honestly don't think he's badass.
He's completely boring

| ”Claude didn't talk because "The lead player is the only person who never speaks. He has no personality. Or rather he has your personality, the player has to have freedom to act as they want, not as they think the model they are controlling should want.” |
In another interview, Sam Houser said the following: “In GTA III, you had the main guy who never really had a name. I know that some people refer to him as Fido or Claude, but he was never officially given a name because we wanted it to be you.”
Carl Johnson is the 'first' such Player Controlled Charactor (PCC) to talk.

|In San Andreas, when you beat Claude at a race where you meet Wu Zi Mu, you get a garage in Doherty, thus making you fix up the trash heap. Throughout the game Catalina calls you and says dumb things to CJ. One time she calls she was ment to actually call Claude, but called CJ instead. Claude isn't a mute to talk on the phone. He can't make sound effects in the background and have conversations with Claude unless he had a voice. Catalina also knows the his name is Claude. He must've told her! Claude, a mute? No. My opinion, he chooses not to talk.|
I know its been 5 years but, @OP that was just an excuse so Catalina could talk to CJ dude, did you not see the irony in that phone call? He's definately mute, regardless of what you say. Catalina was deeply in love with CJ even after their last mission together. Actually through out the whole game.

I don't think so, but you could 'interact' by burping and/or farting by pressing a designated button.

In III he grunted when he got shot or fell so he can make noise, but just chooses not to. Obviously he must talk SOMETIMES but that's out of the player's eye.

If it hadn't been for a few years of intensive speech therapy, I probably would have gone around grunting and pointing at things because I couldn't pronounce the words. I know someone who has a severe speech impediment to the point that mostly only people who have been around him can really understand him. He's not all that loud in front of strangers, but when he gets to know a person he really starts talking.

Some people think he doesn't speak after Catalina betrays and shoots him during the bank robbery in GTA III. Then, why he doesn't speak in GTA San Andreas, which is set in 1992 (9 years before GTA III)? In GTA San Andreas, during the mission called Wear Flowers in Your Hair, CJ's quote "Motherf*cker! That mute asshole!" confirms Claude's mute. In GTA III, during the mission called Chaperone, Maria calls Claude Fido. It's probably his own nickname. In GTA San Andreas, Catalina always calls CJ and says how she loves Claude. And how they know who's he? He's mute, so he just wrote it on the paper.
I also have noticed Claude's voice in GTA III. Watch this video if you want to see it. But listen carefully!

Correct. i think she pretends to be having sex on the phone.
And really, at the end of the day, its a nod to GTA III by rockstar (The fact his name is Claude is a nod to GTA2). Rockstar have stated before that he never talked so you felt like the protagonist - before they got into decent character development in future games.
