Cellphone crashes when accessing internet

Question

BeardyDrummer

Hello all,

 

Everytime I go to the internet icon on my cellphone in game, it displays for about 2 seconds, then disappears. When it disappears, my minimap also vanishes. This happens in Story Mode and Online.

 

Then if I go back to the cellphone, every other icon works except Internet. It just freezes the phone for a few seconds and then I can exit.

 

Anyone else been getting this?

Yes lots of us have the same problem. This bug started on 90% by me. There is no solution how to fix it. I hoped today's patch 1.05 fixed this shi**y glitch but nooooooo :(.

 

Solution:

A start a new game on a new slot

B you can access internet via ammu-nation message from the cellphone and write the address manually (www.bawsaq.com, etc...). Be sure to not go to the home page (the eyefinder.com home page is glitched)

C for online you must start a new game on a new slot, do the 1st mission and save, now you are able to use your internet in online....

Same problem here.

 

I know exactly when it happens in my game, and have just been in touch with Rockstar Support so that they can hopefully sort out a patch.

 

For me this happens when I complete Rampage 3 with a gold medal. Luckily I had a save game just before this so was able to check. I reloaded the save, checked the internet (worked fine), completed the rampage but forgot to destroy cars so only got a silver medal. Checked the internet and it worked fine. So, I redid the rampage, got gold and the internet is now broken. So, I am 100% certain that this causes the glitch.

 

As has been said before (see links below), it is only the front page of the internet that is affected. So, I assume a news story after the rampage is the cause of this problem.

My phone quit working like 10 days ago. Online and offline.

I can pop up the phone screen. But that's where it ends.

I think it happened shortly after I got 100 percent completion.

I am so... incredibly... irritated...

Seeing as I work in IT, yes :)

 

Thanks for your replies all. Glad to know (in a shared frustration way) that it's not just me.

Sorry to bring up what should be an old thread, but this has now just occured for me which means that even update 1.06 Rockstar STILL haven't cured it... in fact I'm 99% sure that with the timing it was in fact 1.06 that caused it for me... I don't know if you guys had the same problem but also I can't press select to invite people to the apartment or change vehicle access etc.

Same here, it started when I completed the game. For the game I don't care so much, they are workarounds but for the online I'm really pissed off, I'm level 42 and there no way to access Internet through email as email don't exist in online version; so basically no way to save your money, no access to quick mission or race… Conclusion: unplayable online! Will try to start a new game and start online from there to see if that works.

Happened to me last weekend (under 1.05) right after I completed the "A Starlet in Vinewood" quest. Completing that quest must have prompted a change in the front page headline and crashes the browser (and other phone items, and the Select button no longer works etc). Both in Single player and online.

 

Only 'fix' was to reload an older save game and keep playing from that. I haven't tried finishing the 'Starlet' quest again since on my previous save I had only found 24 letters out of 50. Don't feel like picking them all up again until I see more confirmation the error is fixed. But at least I can play online again.

 

I was at 91.1% complete at time of error. Finished game and only other active quest was with Michael and the Epsilon missions.

After a bit of research I managed to revive my online game... May have been posted before but this does work!

 

The fault is actually in the game save and if caught early it's feasible to overwrite it with the autosave, but other than that you've GOT to lose that save game so...

 

Start a new story mode game.

 

Play until you can use the phone... it's just after Franklin does the first car chase.

 

Save the game in a new slot.

 

You'll now be able to use internet in both story mode and online. This does NOT affect your online character... that's saved on the cloud server, but it'll bring their phone back into life!

 

Finally, wipe the original game save... it's corrupt data.

 

So sure, it means starting story mode from scratch which is annoying but you can play online again :)

My phone/internet hasn't worked in over a month now.

 

I'm not gonna start all over again, just so I can go online.

Rockstar should just fix this insted of handing out money and releasing dlc.

And why would I start over if I can't go to 100 percent?

 

I'm really disappointed with Rockstar. Things like this are holding me back from buying any future releases.

If things don't get fixed, I'm hooking up my PS2 and play some old games again.

A workaround is to start a new game in a different save slot. Use the new game only when you want to go online. Keep playing single player in your other save. It's inconvenient but it does work.

 

Starting a new game may not fix the problem. I recently started a new game because of this bug. When I was doing the mission,"Blitz Play," the bug returned when I called Michael to tell him where the getaway vehicle was.

I only know because I turned off autosave and saved my game manually. Each time I was ready to save I would check for the internet-phone bug before saving. If I had the bug I would load my last known bug free save. I reloaded my game three times and each time the bug would happen after calling Michael. I've submitted this info to Rockstar support. Hopefully it will help them figure it out!
