It is named Hub in Saints Row IV.

In-game cellphone


The "Ill Wireless" Cellphone allows calling Homies for assistance, dialing the Phone Numbers of various Stilwater businesses, and entering and activating Cheats.

After entering new phone numbers manually, they are added to the phone's address book to allow for quicker phone calls in the future.

The Cellphone also displays the game time displayed in the top right corner.

Saints RowEdit

The Phone menu is part of the Pause Menu and is the top half of a flip phone, with full text menus.

The Map is the first screen on the Pause Menu, and is not part of the phone.

Menu Description
Homies List of unlocked Homies
Phone Book List of previously dialled Stores
Cheats Unsorted list of previously dialled Cheats
Dial Standard cellphone keypad

Saints Row 2Edit

The Phone menu is the last page of the main pause menu (excluding co-op), and is now a smart phone with images.

The Map is now be accessed separately from the pause menu, and is framed with the phone turned sideways.

Saints Row: Total ControlEdit

In Saints Row: Total Control, the Cellphone is used to recruit thugs.[1]

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

In Saints Row: The Third, the Cellphone plays a much bigger role and aggregates multiple features which were previously available in different locations, such as in-game concepts previously located in the pause menu.
  • The Dialer and Phone Book features are not present, so it is not possible to arbitrarily dial Stores or other numbers.
  • Cheats are now added via the cheats menu rather than being entered as a Phone Number.
  • The Map is now part of the Phone menu itself. When exiting the phone menu with the Map active, it is displayed again upon reentering the phone menu. This "last used" shortcut only works with the Map screen.

During the missions When Good Heists Go Bad and I'm Free - Free Falling, only the Camera and Extras menus are available.

At the start of the mission We're Going to Need Guns, all menu options are available except for Saintsbook, and no Upgrades can be purchased.

Completing We're Going to Need Guns unlocks Saintsbook and Upgrades, although the Upgrades menu was previously available but unusable.

Saints Row The Third Ringtone
SRTT Ringtone

The cellphone ringtone in Saints Row: The Third uses the tune from "Ridin' In That Black Joint" by Wale, which is used as main menu music in Saints Row 2, as well as being played on 95.4 KRhyme FM.

Saints Row: The Third features incoming calls fairly frequently, either during missions or to start Survival diversions. On 5th April 2012, Volition, Inc. released the ringtone for download (in .mp3 and .m4r file formats) via their official website.[4]


  • Civilians use Cellphones, and drop them if bumped or killed, but they cannot be picked up.
    • Civilians use their Cellphones to call the Stilwater Police Department.
    • Civilians often take photos of Playa with a cellphone, so it is possible to amass many dropped phones in one area.[5]
    • Although Civilians can take photos with their phones, Playa can not. Civilians and Playa both use a more traditional camera when taking tourist photos while Idle.
  • Saintsbook is a reference to the social media website Facebook.
