I tried calling Jimmy with Michael after Father/Son and he never picked up...But he did pick up when I called him with Franklin

 

EDIT:

 

-Also, if you call Amanda after Daddy's Little Girl, she'll ask again about the tennis coach. Also again. After this mission I tried calling Jimmy with M but he never answered...but he did when I called him with F and he asked "How much is his dad back"

 

-After blowing Jay Norris' head, you can call Martin with M and he'll play dumb and want to "check" how much it was to pay him if it was around the 1 million. Martin obviously doesn't fall for it.

 

-A second call to him can be made. I tried after doing "The Good Husband". He basically says he's starting to worry and the contractors need to be paid. And that next time will be a machete instead of a bat. Jimmy too, but it took me a couple of tries till he answered. He basically says if he's back to killing and robbing to please not get killed or arrested

 

-After "Casing the Jewelry Store", you can call Lamar. The events of "The Long Stretch" are still a bit latent it seems, so the chat isn't very friendly nor hostile. Just how F now is working with pros instead of clowns

@Vec,

 

Nice man, I only knew about the one call you can make to Martin. I can't remember if it's one or two (you have mention) that I always get, but it's about 'where's my money-' so on something, Michael says you have it soon. Been awhile since my last play through.

 

Question; does anyone just look up the numbers and call people? Like, I don't buy the taxi business and I punch in Liz number with Michael and have her as Michael's booty call. Vaniella Unicorn girls I also just call I don't go flirt and Ursula I haven't tried calling before finding her so not sure if she pick up but was wondering if anyone else done or does this? Or call others, Franklin > Cris, Trevor > Tracey, just see if anything does happen? I tried once throughout storyline but at the time not many numbers had been discovered so was limited but curious if others have tried and got a conversation..

Trevor can call Chef DURING The Third Way.

When? I tried to call him after phoning Ron, before killing Haines, while driving to Devin and while driving Devin to his doom. The phone just says he's busy like normal...

Not only you can call Wade after Mr. Phillips, but you can call Ron too, and he kind of foresees the outcome of the deal with the chinese

Sorry for both bump and double post: You can actually call Tracey twice after "Fame or Shame". The second one Michael will try to reason with her in vain and she tells him that she wishes that Trevor was her father

Frank can call Lamar a sh*t load of times during the story.

 

A few Lamar convos I know off the top of my head: inbetween/after the first couple repo missions, after The Long Stretch, after seeing Tanisha at his Aunt's house, after laying low from the jewel store heist (when Trevor first arrives in LS), after Frank moves into his Vinewood Hills safehouse, after Hood Safari and Lamar Down.

 

Frank can call Stretch after the missions The Long Stretch, Hood Safari, Lamar Down.

 

Trevor can call Wade twice after Mr. Philips telling him to hurry the f*ck up finding M.

 

Trevor can call Ron after Mr. Philips and again sometime after he arrives in LS, possibly more I'm only up to this point on my current playthrough.

 

Trevor can call Cheng Sr. after Michael gets rescued to taunt him.

 

Michael can call Dr. Friedlander after major events in the game, I'm not 100% sure but I think calling is an alternative to actually going to his office, as in the dialogue for the cutscene is more or less the same as the phone session.

 

Michael can call Martin a couple times during the jewel store heist set up.

 

Michael can call Tracey and Jimmy during his exile from LS.

 

Like others have said, I'll post more as I find them. I'm taking my time on my current playthrough.

 

OP (or someone) should compile these calls into a List. Looking around I can't find one and it seems there's enough interest to warrant one.

I'm doing the same, only just started a new playthrough. I'll compile a list once I've completed the game.

 

Michael can call Jimmy after Marriage Counselling.

It's either before or after the Paleto Score ...

As Michael you can

Call Tracey twice, but only for her to a say a word before hanging up.

Call Jimmy twice, but only for him and Michael to have brief exchanges.

Call Devin Weston once.

Call Solomon Richards once.

 

As Trevor you can

Call Wade once.

Not sure if you are interested but, somewhat related, there are unique character switch scenes before and after missions depending on who you are and who you switch to.

 

The only ones I can remember though are; Switching to Franklin after one of Devin's car collection missions(unfortunately I'm not sure which specifically) has Franklin standing in the auto shop crossing one of the cars off the wall with a blacklight ala Gone in 60 seconds.

 

Switching to Franklin after he warns Trevor about the McNeil's(right?) coming for him starts the mission Predator automatically.

 

Switching to Franklin after Derailed has him on his Bagger in Blaine county on his way to the dock after Dave tells Michael to meet him there because they have business to take care of.

 

Just thought maybe you guys would be interested in some of these as well.

After Bury the Hatchet, Trevor can call

Jimmy

Ron

Mrs Madrazo

Cheng Senior

After Reuniting the Family, Franklin can call Jimmy

Not sure if you are interested but, somewhat related, there are unique character switch scenes before and after missions depending on who you are and who you switch to.

If other folks are up for it, we can compile a list on that too.

Most of the time however it's just a unique piece of dialogue the playable character will mutter to himself.

I'm sure there's unique dialogue when hanging out with certain characters after certain missions too.

 

After Chop, whilst hanging out with Lamar as Franklin, they talk about kidnapping D and after The Long Stretch, Franklin asks Lamar if he's seen any Ballas looking shady.

 

I'll make note of any others I come across.

After "Eye in the Sky", Franklin can call Devin for him telling F why he likes to work with him apart from "being cheap" :p

 

EDIT: After repoing the JB 700, you can call Jimmy and he'll ask if you've heard of Mike and tell you that there are some creepy dudes near the house

Mike can call Tracey after Daddy's Little Girl to appologize.

 

Mike can call Amanda after Daddy's Little Girl, she asks if coach is dead and Michael says he probably skipped town (basically part 2 to her Marriage Counseling call)

 

 

Not sure how related but what about those small changes in and out of missions if you listen closely? Like in the first mission, Lamar will complain about Franklin's hair and on the next mission he has different dialogue depending if you cut it or not. Stuff like going back to the shop where Micheal bought his hipster clothes in the lifeinvader mission, the clerk asks how the interview went. Killing Ashley giving you different dialogue.

 

Here's a couple of those I noticed:

 

If you change your clothes during The Long Stretch before driving to the bottle depo (I flagged up with some green CGF gear), when you get back in the car Stretch and Lamar will talk about your clothes for a bit.

 

If you do the mission Father and Son before doing Chop, the dialogue between Lamar and Frank on their way to kidnapping D will be different, Frank tells Lamar he met a white guy who can help them branch out to bigger crimes.

 

If you kill both the porn guys chasing you on Daddy's Little Girl the dialogue will change on the way back to the beach, Tracey will freak out about being an accessory to murder and admits shes been doing blow.

Pro-Tip:

During and after every major/minor mission or just after events, call every contact using all 3 characters (or available characters during a mission). Even if you finish a mission with Franklin, switch to Michael and Trevor and call everyone before starting a new mission. Call each of the contacts multiple times until the conversations repeat. You should end up hearing all of them. There are a lot.

Trevor's phone calls are hilarious. When he calls Jimmy after Fame Or Shame and asks for all Michael's bank details and secrets, then starts calling him fat and stupid, haha!

 

This needs to be pinned and made into a proper list.

After 'Meltdown'
Franklin can call Jimmy
Michael can call Solomon

During 'The Third Way' I've tried calling Chef as Trevor to no avail.
Perhaps Chef had to be used as gunman in both Paleto Score & the Big One?

After 'The Third Way'
Franklin can call Lamar
Trevor can call Lamar
Michael can call Solomon Richards

Right, since TC doesn't seem to be returning, I'm going to compile a list with what we have so far.

Would be nice if it was somehow bumped to the first post of a new page, for easier findings.

Bravo, Grievous. A mod should put that list into the OP.

 

Btw, though, I've consistently gotten access to "Franklin - *Unique character switch shows him talking with Tanisha at his doorstep*" during Los Santos Part 1 (right after Marriage Counseling, specifically).

I've consistently gotten access to "Franklin - *Unique character switch shows him talking with Tanisha at his doorstep*" during Los Santos Part 1 (right after Marriage Counseling, specifically).

Really? lucky you, I always thought how disappointing it was to barely meet Tanisha throughout the game until she barges in near the end and starts yelling through the roof and acting unconditionally judgmental towards Franklin.

It really came out of nowhere to me on my first playthrough, I was waiting for gameplay to resume so that I can escort her out of the door in a quick time event!

 

Anywya, i'll remove that annotation then.

 

EDIT: I should add that I've deliberately avoided commenting on the nature of each phone conversations, as to avoid both cramming too much information, and mostly to keep the content fresh for those who wishes to experiment on their own.

Good work, needs to be moved to the first post, should be pinned too.

 

I could never get Madrazo to answer to Michael, it must be time specific?

Hmm, it's true I didn't take into account the possibility of characters only replying at a certain time in the day.

I've always performed quite a bit of free roam during day time, and it's during that time while driving from one point of the map to another that I dial the contacts.

Not immediately after completion of a mission, but before starting the next one.

 

How would bumping my list onto the first post work anyway? What happens when we have to edit the list? I mean do I still get to edit it?

 

EDIT: To all aspiring players wishing to further complete the list, it's worth noting that in my experience, not once has Any of the Strangers & Freaks contacts ever replied.

Of course it's entirely possible that one or two exceptions exists and I missed them, but generally though it's quite a dead end.

 

I should also make a list of people who Never answers their phones anyway, such as Franklin's Aunt Denise.

I've added mentions of Doctor Friedlander's two phone therapy sessions with Michael, the first being available after "Mr. Richards", and the second available after "Derailed" when Michael is in exile.

 

I've also added Martin Madrazo for Trevor after "Minor Turbulence" and "Plateo Score Set-Up".

However I'm perhaps mistaken, does he answers the phone only to Trevor, Michael, or both?

 

I've added a new category at the end of the list, "List of 'filler' contacts", comprising of characters that never answers their phones, with additional mention as specified in the list post, as well as a small 'hunting' section for Trevor at the end that I believe needs to be completed, I sadly do not remember all the contacts that yield unique responses, especially since I do recall that some of the Strangers & Freaks characters actually give unique responses, but I don't recall which of them did.

 

Check it out and or try it out and again mention if faults are found.

Also concerning the Tanisha scene at Frank's aunt's house, as I mentioned in one of my posts Frank can call Lamar right afterwards to talk about seeing her. I'm positive the call is triggered by this scene. You should add it to the list.

 

I've never not gotten this scene in all my 4 playthroughs.
