Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Permits you to call (nearly) anyone in the neighborhood through the "Call...Sim" action on the phone/cell phone.

Doesn't let you speak to the dead or to babies (and you probably don't want to try calling Social Bunnies), but it will let you talk to sims you don't know among the NPCs/Townies/other families.

Note: Use the "nl" version if you have Nightlife installed, otherwise use the old version.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Oh, that's so sweet. Thank you. Any know conflicts with other phone hacks? "The great thing about living in a small town is that you don't need a little black book. You just get a phone book and mark out the 2 or 3 names that you don't know."

Does your file cause any calls to vanish, such as "missed work" or "sold book" ? I notice the unchanged game does not alllow children to call adults. I'm thankful for that to be changed.
I had so may problems with Pescado's phone hack I've been afraid to try any more..

This is a great idea! I've been stuck using the "make me know everyone" option on the mailbox hack in order to get my sims to be able to call more people.

Seriously. Don't call Social Bunny. Unless you like to experiment with freaky things.

You can call everyone. But can they call you if you don't know them first? Great job, I will test.

Will this work with Pescado's hack?

I use all of Pescado's hacks, and I haven't had any trouble with conflicts so far.

It's possible that Pescado's "phonehack" mod will conflict with this one in the future (if he ever decides to do his own code for setting up a sim's "personal phonebook"). His phonehack mod does a heck of a lot more than just change a few phone routines, already.

If you call the social bunny you sim freezes and just stands there. you can't x out the interaction, the only way to get them off the phone is by deleting them

Is there a way that you can only call sims with phones, because alot of them dont have phones like npc's & townies.

All NPCs & Townies live outside the neighborhood (where they are equipped with phones AND computers).

Is it possible to add different sorts, eg to display only: friends; family; Neighborhood sims; NPC; townies. It is takes a while to call the people you want. thanks
