Cell phone alerts from contacts...

Recommended Posts

bleedout28

Okay, so I was locked in a heated battle with another player in free mode. I was sprinting down an alleyway when all of a sudden I get call on my cell from Martin Madrazo, bitching at me because I wasn't doing something or other for him. I took the call without even knowing because I was hitting my A button to sprint to get to a defendable position, which sadly is also the button to accept calls.

 

My request: Stop the calls from the NPC contacts. I mean, seriously, they serve no purpose. We know what we can do once we unlock them, we don't need them calling every 3 or 4 minutes calling, asking the same idiotic questions over and over again. It's annoying and pointless. Give us the ability to turn them off so they can't bother us anymore.

Martin and Simeon especially. Simeon is just a sh*tbird, and every time Martin calls, it's LITERALLY right after I just did one of his missions.

There's an option in the online menu to turn off cell alerts, but it doesn't seem to work well.

IKR, I just killed all those lawyers for you, now you say there's more?

Jesus Martin, how many people have you killed again?

This disables the pop up notifications for jobs ect. It doesn't stop the random pointless calls from Martin and others. I can agree though. Its annoying and pointless. If it was a call to say there was a new job and details on it, it would be ok. Its not though. I know I can do jobs and call in bounties, purchase shark testosterone ect. Stop f**cking bothering me with the same s#!t over and over again.

Logs in.

Gets Simeon's car list 4 seconds later.

Literally 10 seconds after getting said list, Simeon calls me, bitching about how I didn't get him the cars.

Delivers Penumbra minutes later, gets 3k for it.

 

f*ck you, Simeon.

Screw RR, there's still Lester who is less irritable and can HELP you in free mode, something Madrazo doesn't.

It's worse than getting calls to bowling.

 

WHY ARE WE LETTING THIS HAPPEN?

I was in a session and I went about 23-0 in kills and I got a msg from Simeon and a msg from Martin and at the same time i unlocked a new tint and tattoo. So it could be related to achievements if its not a mission. But I don't know. I like those ones but there are annoying ones and too frequent even if you change the settings or if you get a call while trying to kill/flee.

My guess it's Rock Star's method of getting people killed because instead of being able to sprint or use the A/X button to get away, we end up answering pointless calls...

You know its a good reminder of how to do things like use some of Lesters aids ...when you're early in the game. By the time you get to level 80, there's no need for these calls. Raise a suggestion with R* and provide them the link to this thread so they can see there's support for it.

Lester's been a real pest to Lola atm. Seem to get all of his missions to the phone at once (I thought they only sent one at a time) and calls literally 3-4 times an hour! 2nd worse is Ron.

 

Did make me laugh when Martin called to say she wasn't doing enough work for him, half way through a Rooftop Rumble grind

I agree, I wish I could stop those bloody annoying calls, firstly they're annoying, secondly they get in the way as the cellphone pop-up disables a couple of your buttons you may actually be using at the time!

I agree with OP. These calls are even more annoying than those "hey niko, wanna ga bowling"

Stuff from back in gta iv

But Madrazo giving us piles of $. I wonder if he doesnt have to buy cash cards yet because of all the mission rewards...

I have actually sent an email to rockstar regarding this very issue. I think sometime after level 30 they should stop calling altogether, because I like OP have been in so many situations where these alert calls get in the way of actual gameplay. They are annoying and frankly need to be gotten rid of.

The game needs to take notice of when and how many times the "A" button or what ever it is on ps3 has been pressed such as running or on a push bike, nothing worse than dom or simeon or whoever calling while trying to get away from the cops etc.

To be honest I have never bought it. I have only ever used it on a DM from memory. It was only the once and that was very early on when I just got the game. I think you can purchase via a website on your phone.
