Badgernew-logo
that he uses to communicate and interact with the environment. Badger equipment is not compatible with ring tones or wallpaper and only prominently displays the Badger logo as its theme. In the The Ballad of Gay Tony DLC, Luis's owns a more modern phone, a Badger Touchscreen Phone for the entire game. It is more advanced than the previous Badger Cellphone, with the ability to take pictures and add ringtones and themes.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsEdit

The PDA present on the touch screen runs on the Badger network. The software is apparently known as BadgerOS, and gives the player access to the game's menus and features. While mobile phone conversations are not present, the PDA (as well as the computer found in safehouses) can be used to receive email. On the PSP version of the game, there are three themes selectable from the Settings menu (which can be found inside the System application), the default is Badger's skin, but one for "Sprunk" and another for "Tw@ Internet Cafe" can also be chosen.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Badger continues to grow on BAWSAQ. The company benefits of some of the largest Increase-BAWSAQ stock increases, although the actions' prices are very low. Its main office, the Badger Building, is located in Vinewood, Los Santos. Badger's ads are now more aggressive towards its main competitor, stating that they offer "wider coverage than Tinkle".

TriviaEdit

  • The Badger network, like the Whiz network, is capable of sending photos, as shown by Ray Boccino sending you a picture of a target in the mission A Long Way To Fall, which means that perhaps Niko's inability to use themes, ring tones and to take and send pictures is due not to the network but to the cell phone he used at the time.
  • Ray Boccino owns a Badger phone, however it is shown as a Whiz phone, and also in the cutsene for the mission Late Checkout, he is seen throwing his phone at the waiter in the restaurant, which is used in an Whiz Wireless television commercial demonstrating "Enjoy Robust, Durable Handsets".
  • In the Ballad of Gay Tony, though the player has a Badger phone, if they go into the "Themes" menu, they may select a Whiz Wireless wallpaper.
  • Badger is used as another term to fart in some parts of the UK, to keep up with Rockstar's crude humour.
