That sucks. If you are 98% done, there is definitely nothing you can do to activate the Stevie text messages, since those 30 cars give you the final 2%.

 

It appears there are quite a few phone-related glitches in the game, such as the Elizabeta glitch (failing to answer her call the first time she rings results in the game ceasing up after the "Final Interview" mission part 1).

 

Hopefully they'll release a patch for it.

Yeah Rockstar definately needs to address ALL these phone-related problems. Whether people failed to answer the phone, or hung up the phone, or put it in sleep mode all lead to these glitches...a patch is needed. The patch needs to scan your save file for the following: what missions have you done, and what missions are still needed. Whatever missions are still needed, the patch needs to force people to call you again, over and over until the mission initiates, assuming they stopped calling/ texting you.

 

 

 

The garage stays open after your done because you can deliver any car you want for money afterwards.

But does the garage icon still remain on your map?

 

GTA IV could have been better if you could actually have a record on your phone of everyone who called you: by that I mean Name, Time, and Duration. Kind of like a real cell phone in real life...right? That way you can see if people called you or not...

 

And STEALTHGEIST just keep trying.

So Gigabite, I figured it out. It is definitely the quick save and specific to picture text messages. If you recieve a picture text message and either turn off your console or reload your last quick save, You will lose the message. F****d up thing is you lose it even if you got a quick save AFTER recieving the message. Funny though that you don't lose the regular text messages. Very nice little glitch. How about Grand Theft Achievement! Also, if you have the garage icon on your map, this means that you did recieve a call from Brucie and a message from Stevie. You just ended up skippimg the call and losing the message. So that means one of the cars is just sitting in one of the thirty locations waiting for you to find it. Or by some chance, you happened to find one of the cars without knowing it and ditched or wrecked it somewhere. It's gotta be out there somewhere. I just started over and actually finished the game rather quickly. It goes by fast if you take taxis everywhere and skip all the cut scenes. Oh well, I needed the Liberty City achievemnet anyway as I took my time the first time around.

OK STEALTHGEIST your theory gives me hope. I guess I'll fire up GTA IV again and re-check all 30 locations again carefully...

 

Yeah the garage icon is on my map and I vaguely remember getting a CALL from Brucie telling me about Stevie. But I think after that my phone was primarily put on sleep mode. So Stevie most likey tried to text me then, but my phone was on sleep...so I will re-check all 30 locations again...

 

On a side note, let's say that Stevie wants you to steal a Comet. Do you actually have to be in the Comet in his picture at the location for it to say "take it to Stevie", or can you just be in any Comet and it will also say "take it to Stevie"?

 

Thanks STEALTHGEIST. smile.gif

It has to be the Comet that Stevie wants you to take; it can't be any other one.

 

My only advice is: Go around the whole city with the Stevie car locations guide and see which one is there. If not even one out of those 30 are there; then you're pretty much out of luck :\

Oh sh*t, when is Stevie's first text message supposed to come in the game? I finished all of Brucie's missions and have already just killed Playboy X and I still haven't received one yet.

This is in response to Sebthelodgemn. I know that you definitely have to finish Brucies exotic import missions and the mission called "NO 1" which is a race you do with Brucie in Stevie's Comet. You also have to have all of the map unlocked. I have heard people say you also need to complete the mission "Smackdown". I can't say whether or not this is true though. I didn't get a call from Brucie until after I completed Smackdown but it was a bit later in the game. There seems to be no precise time as to when you get Brucie's call. I would say just make sure that you do Brucie's races and always answer your phone when Brucie calls after completing NO 1. This is the fourth and last mission for Brucie so I made sure that I did all the races before completing this mission. Make sure you pay attention to your incoming text messages and remember to save at a safe house after getting any picture message that you want to keep. It would probably be a good idea to make a save point after completing Brucie's races and NO 1. That way you can reload if you miss Brucies call. Most people always call you back but not when it comes to the Stevie phone call.

I'm not too worried about it right now... but I haven't heard from Stevie. I finished everything in Part I and II, now I'm taking a break and doing stunt jumps/killing flying rats.

Hmm, it probably is a bit buggy thing this. I was aimlessly wandering on foot somewhere in Algonguin, and saw this nice little car parked by the street. Decided to grab it and I instantly got msg stating that it was a car Stevie wanted. Now, I checked the msg sent by Stevie, and this car was NOT the one he asked in that particular msg, in fact the car he asked for was totally different model, and parked into another place far from the car I grabbed. Well, I drove that car to garage and stevie send me another txt msg. So at the time, I had two msgs from Stevie asking for two different cars from two different locations. Anyways, I got into doing something else, and have yet to find and deliver those cars. Not even sure if I still have those two msgs in my phone. I have to check it out, when I start up the game next time.

 

Anyways, you guys could just try to wander aimlessly looking for nicely painted cars in mint condition and try out your luck in stealing one. If you get lucky, it might be one that Stevie wants.

you need to do No1 (the race mission for brucie) and smackdown (derrick's first mission from alderney) to get text from stevie.

 

try visiting all of the locations of stevie's cars, one of them will be there - when you get inside it will say "you've found the car stevie is looking for". then you can choose to take it to stevies garage, a few game hours later (just go to pay n spray to get instant text) you get a new text.

 

if you haven't even been introduced to stevie through brucie, try calling brucie to trigger it.

find the NRG-900 motorcycle, that was the 1st one i found and that started the text messages, remember you have to take a nap after everyone to speed up the txt messages.

 

Hope that helps

I've got the same problem. I even started a whole new game and just completed 'Smackdown' (done all Brucie's auto thefts)... So in both my games I've never heard from Stevie.

 

This is a glitch. R* are refusing to acknowledge it.

It says in my strategy guide that "No 1", and "Smackdown" must be completed to recieve texts from Stevie.

 

Alot of people think that you need to do all of Brucie's cars first, but this simply is not the case. The races aren't needed either, because I went up to that point before getting Stevie's text, without doing a single rac.

 

I've heard so many problems, and it makes me paranoid (Not so much now, as I've already completed the story once), but I still worry. That's why I always answer phone calls.

 

If it's a glitch it certainly hasn't affected me, but to all the people that it is affecting, I hope the problems for you can be solved.

 

GTA IV is a great game, but it's riddled with so many problems. I hope R* acknowledges this soon.

I've definitely done both. Grrrr I was about to start going for 100% in my second run through, but what's the point?

To the person worried about a Stevie car randomly out in the city... if you take one of the cars and drive it around it will respawn in the location you picked it up in.

 

Since you don't know which car you need just look at the map someone posted on the first 2 pages and search all around that area for the car. Sometimes it may look like it's at one spot but it's actually around the block or a little down the road.

 

For people asking if the garage icon stays there, yes it does. It's in Bohan just east of your safehouse. You can continually bring cars back to it after all 30 car thefts are done so that you can earn extra cash (up to $7,000 I believe).

 

For those complaining about the autosave function, it has never messed up my mission progress, texts or emails. I've had picture text messages that have stayed on after numerous autosaves... so I wouldn't contribute it to something as simple as that.

 

Finally, I think it might take a while for those of you who wanted a patch since the chances of Rockstar figuring out what exactly causes it increases with the amount of reports there are... and if yall looking has only found 3-5 other people with the problem chances are Rockstar doesn't too much info about it.

My only suggestion is to look at all 30 spots again... and you may have to do it a few times because a few times i would go to the EXACT place where the car was at that he specifically wanted me to get and it was not there... walked a block away came back and it was there... so good luck to your quest

I'm thinking many of these glitches are a result of deleting text messages. That seems to mess it up for some people. Also don't manual save if you have unread messages - just to be safe.
