Duplicate content. Edit

Currently, the Saints Row 2 cheats are duplicated on Saints Row 2 Cheats and Phone Numbers & Cheat Codes

We either need:

  • Phone numbers on one page and cheats on another page, and the cheats removed from the phone number page.


  • Phone numbers and cheats on a single page, and the cheat code page deleted.

What does everyone else think? -452 18:22, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Good point. I think we should remove the cheats from here, and merge it with the Cheats article, and just rename this page Phone numbers. -Spedster777 20:04, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, done!. I moved the relevant stuff over to Saints Row 2 Cheats, and separated both articles into sections so the table of contents appears. I added a bunch of notes to the Phone Numbers page, but since I don't use cheats I'm not going mess around with Saints Row 2 Cheats - can you take a look at that page and see if you can improve it? -452 03:24, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

words for numbers Edit

I've added words for each of the phone numbers that I can work out. After looking at the keypad for likely combinations, I used to work out a couple of them. But there are a few I can't tell what they are - probably abbreviations or slang. If anyone can work them out, please add them in -452 17:54, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

Downloadable files Edit

In case anyone wants them, here are all of the answering machine messages: -452 06:00, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Actual names Edit

Note, if there is another source for the spelling of the name, it may supercedes the spelling in this list. For instance "Giftshop" refers to Stilwater U. Gift Shoppe which is the name on the map.

It does work when not in the Boss' phone book. I tried it just now. Ghost Leader 05:53, January 26, 2012 (UTC)

That's odd, because I tried it and it doesn't work. Let's troubleshoot this.
  • What platform are you using?
  • Have you already completed Revelation? There is a bug where Dex's number disappears and the phone taps reappear allowing you to listen to them and unlock the number again.
  • Do you have another save file where you have already unlocked the phone number? There is a known bug where loading an earlier save, or starting a new game, without rebooting, will cause things to carry over. (Most notably, the statistics are very broken and shared between all saves under a single profile.

I'm on PS3 and the save file I used to call without listening to the wiretaps first was the very first time I called the number. I did, however, have a second "cheat" save I was playing before calling the number, so it's possible there could have been some kind of glitch. I have a USB thumb drive, so I can try backing up my saves and starting anew with a fresh game to see if it still works right off the bat.
That bug you mentioned explains why every subsequent game I started had crib and vehicle upgrades already bought before I'd bought them, though. Thanks for that. :) Ghost Leader 14:28, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, backed up my game saves and deleted everything except the internal SR2 game data and UnKut DLC (I haven't gotten Ultor Exposed or Corporate Warfare yet), tried Dex' number following the completion of Appointed Defender and it worked fine. I'm looking at the mission icon over Saints Row Church on the map right now. Ghost Leader 15:11, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
Weird. I'm on xbox360, and I created a new profile, started a new game, and after tried the number after jailbreak, and it doesn't work. Then, I signed out of that profile, signed into my profile, loaded my 100% save, tried the number... and found that Dex's number is gone from my phone book again and the phone taps are back.
So I've doubly verified that the phone number isn't working without Dex's entry already being in the phone book. Maybe it's different on PS3. I'll try on PC later. --452 00:45, January 29, 2012 (UTC)
Tested on PC, not working. Can anyone else confirm being able to call Dex on 5552628 before picking up the Julius File? --452 01:01, April 28, 2012 (UTC)
I now have a PS3 and SR2, and tried to reproduce this, with strange results.
When I listen to the wiretaps and call Dex, then save and reload the new save, the phone number is not in my phone, and the wiretaps are back.

Image as Designed Edit

When you dial Image as Designed number in Saints Row 1, it says, that this number doesn't exist. Maybe in game files there is message, but it isn't used.

CSGF1995 (talk) 18:33, July 22, 2014 (UTC)

Good catch, the number in SR1 is 555-6398. "6398" = "Next", but that doesn't seem likely for IaD. Can you think of anything? -452 (talk) 18:46, July 22, 2014 (UTC)
Got it, it's NEW-U. -452 (talk) 18:55, July 22, 2014 (UTC)
