hey guys im here to solve your problems. To pull up your phone you press UP on the D-Pad if you want to access the Keypad you press UP again. To shoot a rocket in GTA4 is impossible but on TBOGT (The Ballad Of Gay Tony) you can shoot rockets by pressing X (Xbox) and Square (PS3). You can not move the forks on the Forklift. and the invencible cheat is actucally a Mod.. If you guys have anymore Questions send me and email or xbox live message or a message on facebook.
