Why can't I raise the cellphone?I did date with Valerie for somereason I can no longer get the phone to come up.I'm guessing i'm supposed to get a mission by phone but I can't raise it.

 

I also sometimes see a phone with x symbol on the bottom right of the map.any idea what's wrong?

Found out why.I pressed the - sign on the num pad to make the phone sleep.Thanks to the iin game trainer i didn't know it was off because of that.

I have the same symptoms, but I can't seem to fix it.

 

I can't raise the phone. I still receive text message beeps, and in the car I occasionally hear the phone interference, so I don't think the phone is asleep. I also don't see any "phone with an x symbol on the map". I have an envelope symbol in the bottom left corner to tell me I have unread messages, but it looks kinda greyed out. I can't remember if that's how it normally looks, though.

 

I have no idea what is causing this, so following are some random pieces of information that may or may not be useful:

 

The last mission I have completed was "Payback", although I think the problem cropped up just before that (and I simply ignored it). I started a new game and can use the phone there, so I doubt it's a universal issue with the game; I tried mapping the "take out phone" function to a different key, with no luck. I've also tried saving and loading, and restarting the program and OS.

 

I'm running the game off Steam; as far as I'm aware it's the most up to date version (4/13/2010).

 

Any ideas, anyone?

 

Cheers.

Just load the relevant save game, then load simple trainer and use enable phone sleep mode, you need to do it twice, and the phone will be back.

probably because you enabled the sleep mode using the trainer before, the only problem is, that if you save the game, the next time you load it, the phone is still disabled. Using the trainer again to bring it up, fixes it.

Bro, the trainer I installed in my game works through an option in the in-game phone. But I can't access the phone anymore, but I still get text messages, and thumbs-ups when I do any mission that are mailed to me.

 

Help plz
