They are the same as single player.

If I am playing by myself what do I go into to play a ranked game? My score seems to keep resetting. I dont know if its because I am playing [unknowingly] unranked matches or if it just wont save. On the in game cell phone the options under multiplayer are GAMES [quick match, custom match] Invites, player mode, tutorial.

I have a PS3

Go to phone (from story mode) > Multiplayer > Ranked > Game mode. I don't know much about the PS3 rank resets, I'm on 360.
Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone else. icon14.gif

to all the ps3 owners who cannot find ranked matches on their phones in multiplayer,there isnt one.Sorry its for xbox 360.The only way i know this is because i own both systems.Now my question is how come on 360 after every match i dont have the option to stay in the lobby with the people i just played with?You can do this on ps3 but it gets boring because nobody ever has a mic.

Uhhh the cash amounts for ranks are definitely wrong.

from level 5 and on it's 250k per level.

Why even post sh*t when you know it's wrong?

Rank 1: $5,000

Rank 2: $20,000

Rank 3: $50,000

Rank 4: $100,000

Rank 5: $250,000

Rank 6: $500,000

Rank 7: $1,000,000

Rank 8: $2,500,000

Rank 9: $5,000,000

Rank 10: $10,000,000

Note: This is not confirmed.

It has been happening to all PS3 users. Rockstar is working on the fix.

To keep your ranked score so that it is there when you come back to it. you have to register on rockstargames.com and the follow the instructions in the help sectiuon at the bottom of the page.. about linking the PS3 network ID to rockstar... then you have to play the game so the the GTA 4 icon shows under your membership number then wait upto 48 hour to fully link then your good to go,

but the info is all there if you can find it...

colgate.gif Start GTA4. Once it has loaded, pause the game by pressing the start button.
Next, go to stats and scroll down to network and select it.
Next I would suggest selecting the individual game mode of choice, simply because selecting "Overall Scores" can sometimes cause the system to freeze.
There you have it. And if you want to see only your and your friends stats - just hit the L1 button.

For the online achievements, do you view them online on your TV or you can only look at them at Rockstar Social Club? P.S. I haven't have an achievement, so I'm curious!

I don't think you can on the social club, only from the guide.

So, if you did accomplish an online achievement, is there a chance that you might not know that you did it or not, right? Or in the multiplayer home screen, will it say that you accomplish this and that? Or you just get the money reward for your achievement?

All that happens with an online achievement is the little message thing pops up and you get the gamerscore.
