Quick App: The Sims 3 for iPhone

We'll avoid the obvious question (why live in a SIM world when you can live in the real one), and the metaphysical (maybe you're just a SIM in someone else's iPhone already...?) because, frankly, no one cares! The Sims 3 is -- finally! -- out for the iPhone and iPod touch:

Play with your Sim using touch and accelerometer controls while exploring stunning 3D open-world environments. Customize your Sim with personality traits and physical characteristics, as you decide whether to fulfill their destiny...or not. Do good or mischief. Fall in love or watch them get dumped. Pick a fight or make a friend. Good or bad, enjoy the ride with The Sims as they experience everything “real” life has to offer. ANYTHING’S POSSIBLE!

If you try it out, and manage to remember the rest of us still exist, let us know how you like the Sims 3 for the iPhone, okay?

  • seems roughly the same as Sims 1 (which isnt necessarily a bad thing)! Great graphics however it does get a bit laggy after a while. I'm sure they'll fix it up-worth the download.
  • this game will run so much better on a second gen ipod and the upcoming iphone. My 3g gets laggy
  • I want this for my iMac first. Then I'll see about for my iPhone. I wouldn't even get it for my 3G though since the next gen will have a better professor.
    I hope that game has auto save. I wouldn't want it to crash on my iPhone and lose progress.
  • Isn't this one of the games that was demoed at Mac World? If I remember correctly, it was used to demonstrate in game downloads. If that's true then it could be a harbinger that 3.0 is close.
  • @OmariJames: I see Apple has stepped up their game and will be passing out professor's with their equipment now.
    Too bad I don't get all the hype about The Sims [insert number here]. Just doesn't pique my interest enough to pull me away from Hold'em or other games. Nice to see the iPhone stepping up to the gaming platform plate though :)
  • @CB.
    NIce to see you get off on people making type-o's :)
  • my sims 3 keeps crashing when i start it what should i do
  • I've downloaded the sims 3 today and I didn't have any of the problems above. It works perfectly well. There's no auto save optoon though. Of course it's not as complete as the PC or Mac version, but I really liked it. There's a store in town that's not available, maybe that's where the in game downloads will come from.
  • My sims 3 keeps crashing. It crashes when I try to visit the lake or fish. It crashes when I go to town. The game just closes 100% out and back to my ipod's home screen.
  • just downloaded sims3!!! we'll see how it goes! Fingers Crossed....
  • Just downloaded it a bit ago. I have had no problems with it crashing and have enjoyed it quite a bit. Haven't played enough to give a full review but so far so good!!!
  • Downloaded it earlier and it crashed every minute, pretty much everything I did. Shut my iPhone down and started it back up, played for a good half hour and no crashes. So if you're having crashing problems just shut down and restart and it should work just fine.
    Now my review. Classic sims gameplay. Still messing with things, but if you like the sims chances are you'll like this game. The camera is a little odd at first but once you find a viewing angle you like it feels very nice.
  • hi! downloaded it and works great! however, dunno why can't seem to have a romantic relationship with any of the sims? just bestfriends???? anyone know how to progress? thanks!
  • Once I got to be best friends I started doing things like flirt, flirty joke, express fondness etc. and within a couple minutes we had romance and I could embrace and kiss her. Sadly I was about to fall asleep so I had to ask her to leave.
  • Mine crashes alot too but when it does work it's worth it. I do wish there were more instructions though because so much has changed from other version I've played
  • crash-fest. wait or don't bother.
  • I bought the Sims 3. I love it. It does crashes a ot, but it's worth it. *****
    I want the PC one
  • Same here.... now I want the PC version... this is a blast. Oh, and yes, it crashes about every 15 minutes or so. Sometimes loosing your progress.
  • I've been playing sims since the first demo
    On PC...this is a wonderful addition to the franchise and it's a lot better than the other sims console versions (they were boring)
    Two thumbs up for iphone
  • Got sims 3 a couple of days ago and it crashes loads but the the game's amazing and I'm sure they'll fix the problems on an upgrade so I reacon it's worth it. .
  • Yes it crashes but it's very good in gameplay, I think that it's a myth that the stereo in the game plays from your iPhone libary. This is what was said by ea at macworld.
    People that are talking about a new iPhone, is that the 3.0 update or an entire hardware upgrade???
  • I downloaded the game today. I played for a while but I noticed that u can't have a kid or get married or something like that. That's makes cool game look boring. If somebody knows how to get married or a child tell me plz.
  • if you download it on your computer, then once it synccs, restart your iphone. it wont crash.. i have it and it amazing 5/5
  • I've downloaded the Sims 3 for my iPhone 3G a couple of days ago, and it'll always crash at the lake, when there coming other sims. It also crashes when I visit Theresa's house (or other quite big ones). When I turn off 3G, it will also crash, but less fast. And when I reboot my device, I can play half an hour (max), without crashing. It's very annoying! I think the game asks too much from my device..
    Hint: you earn a lot of money when you're catching fish at the lake and sell it at the quickmart! $100 for each tuna!
  • as long as you restart your iTouch or iPhone after you download the application, it won't crash. i've also heard that buying on your computer and then putting it on your device instead of buying it straight on your device works well too.
    question: how do you "woohoo" with your partner?
  • For my sims three when im trying to make a chratctor and it comes up to the traits and it aasks to pick 5 i can only pick 2 and it wont work can someone please help
  • How can you get the partners to whooHoo ? Its a wish gotta get er done eh
  • Can't peps to marry arghhhh
  • Everytime I want to play, I just restart the phone and go STRAIGHT to The Sims 3. Doing that allows me to play without crashing
  • LOL is it possible to leave the town or open the pawn shop ( for woohoo u have to be romantic till they become it partner then ask them to marry u then get married. I think it only works on certain people. Theresa is my wife. U also have to be satisfied as in well rested, etc)
  • the weird thing is.. it won't download on my ipod touch 2nd generation and i dont know why
  • How do you sell fish at the Quickmarket?
  • select the fish and hit the minus button.
  • How do you have kids I have a partner but I don't know how to get a kid !
  • How do you give something to a sim?
  • i bought the sims 3 on my ipod touch the first day it came out and no crashes. . . . but i can't get my partners to whooHoo i'm gettin frustrated because its the only goal i have to complete. any help?!?!?!
  • May I know how do I plant things after I have upgraded my house?
  • I got the sims 3 for my ipod touch and it constantly crashes. The game itself is fun but the crashes ruin it. I tried to restart it I even took it off my ipod and put it back. Nothing works. Hopefully there is some way to fix this?
  • I bought this for my 2nd gen iPod touch, and I've never been able to play it! Crashes right after the splash screen. Don't buy this game! Total waste of 10 bucks. With so few models of iphone/ipod, there is no reason at all for this kind of garbage to have been released.
  • To plant things after upgrading house, buy seeds, fertiliser and a watering can from the Hobby Shop. Go outside your house at the back and there should be a patch of earth with garden stakes if you tap on a stake you get the option to plant one of the seeds you bought. You then have to tend them to get them to grow fully and can then harvest them (tapping on the plant gives these options). Plants that grow on bushes like tomatoes can be tended again after harvesting so you can grow more veg. Plants that grow out of the ground like carrots grow once and have to be newly planted to get more to grow. You can sell veg in the Quikmart in same way as fish.
    In return... can anyone tell me how to progress from best friend to romance? Couple seem to be happy together but no option beyond 'Tender Embrace' 'Flirt' and 'Pick Up Line' under 'Be Romantic'. Option to ask to move in but not ask to marry. Refuses move in. Any tips?
  • first you smooch her and then you go to the romance thing and click on the bottom left picture of blue animated sims holding hands!!!
  • how do you ask to marry someone once your their partner?
  • Can Someone Send Me A Copy Of "The sims 3"? Please
  • go to www.wapday.com/(your fone brand + model) sims 3.
  • Bob - how do you even get the smooch option?
  • Money: Go fishing! After you progress you'll catch lots of tuna which sell for $100 each (!) and other very profitable fish. Gardening gets you SOME money but not as much, but still worth it. Make sure to plant a variety because your sim can only hold up to 10 of each item.
    Romance: Note: some sims will not really want to be romantically involved with you. Sometimes because they're shy. Build slowly with flirting and then the flirty joke, as montioned above. But note: sometimes it is not obvious that you need to scroll down to see more options. They're there. If you have a "budding romance" then you can "Hot Smooch" and eventually the "Woo Hoo" option will be one of the last things down below on the menu.
    What I can't figure out is:
    1. how to change my sims clothing.
    2. Any cheats that will get me more money, etc.
    3. How to get a Promotion past "Vice-President" in City Hall. Every time I talk to Ruth (a best friend) about a promotion, she feels negatively about it! Is $300 a day the most you can make?
  • 1) I also have the crashing problem after about 15-20 mins of gameplay it crashes and when I start it up again it crashes more frequently. 2) Gotten my fella to marry me and all but do they not move in with you like the other Sims versions? Kinda nice to inherit your spouses money and assets!
  • I got Bernie to Marry me, move in, and woo hop. So it isn't impossible. It took repedidly selecting all romance options over several days. Sorry for spelling errors. Any attempt to correct has erased entire message.
  • To get some one to be in a relationship you have to romance them and be nice.....Tender embrace and express fondness works best FYI you can "scroll" to get different options while in the "menu" The crashing comes from all the power being used, when i have full power and am plugged up i get very few crashes To WOO_HOO you have to romance first you need a tender embrace then -hot smooch 1 to 2 times- back to romance and "scroll Down WHOO-HOO is under hot smooch. Save money eat at a best friend's house Fishing gets u the moola .....Collect your fish then go to the quick market to sell .... to unload hit the minus button ALSO you can sell your "crops" To get married you have to romance and be nice ....then you get to finance and then romace some more and be nice then you can ask to get married To give something to a sim they have to request it, once you have that item it will come up in the menu to give it ...you may have to go to actions to do this i hope this helps .... i have completed all tasks and have 10K in money .....guess i am going to buy the one on the pc cause there nothing left for me to do!
  • complete all wishes to unlock pawn shop and get a job as master criminal for 600/night
  • I keep on doing romance actions and somhow I am not able to get past best friends can anyone tell me how to become partners
  • In order to be in a romantic relationship, you have to romance them while you are still friends. if you are good/best friends then insult them and you will go back to just being friends.
    When you are dating you will have the option to wohoo.
    I hope this helps.
    POOH, can you tell me how to get a bigger garden and discover new recipes?
  • Crashes HORRIBLY. Won't even start anymore on my iPhone. I'll try deleting and reinstalling... so much for my saves.
  • 1: ok just to make sure you have to be only friends to get romantic? b/c ive been best friends with Luke for ever now and i still cant smooch him
    2: Jenny-
    ~ to get a bigger garden you have to upgrade your house (it'll get bigger with each upgrade)
    ~ and discovering new recipes just means buying them from the bistro (i think)
    3: Mines never crashed but it might be because we dont have a Wi-Fi connection
  • Oh and also can you only upgrade your house twice? It wont let me upgrade mine anymore but it isnt as big as some other sims
  • yeah same, also how do you complete all wishes? and also, are there any non hacking cheats for money??
  • I have been playing for hours a day (i know it's baaaddd), but no matter who I flirt with, and they are all my best friends, and no matter how good of a mood I am in, nothing I do will let me start a romance. Also once in a while, I die- it says that my ego got too big for my body or something, but then it lets me pick up where I left off.. Mine crashes too... but it got much better after i reset my iPhone settings... but it still crashes sometimes.
  • you have to be friends with someone to start a romantic relationship with them, (which is what happened to me) so try insulting them and slapping them etc., the flirt with them once you're just friends. i'm not sure about the ego thing, but with it crashing, try keeping it recharging whilst playing, or only play when you have full battery, also save often and i find that helps too:)
  • Hey,
    Thanks Jess,
    Your answer has helped a lot.
    This game is amazing! Though it is very expensive and does use up quite a large amount of battery. The graphics are quite like the first Sims, if a bit better. If there were some changes I'd love them to include:
    Being able to have children,
    Being able to build more,
    More Promotions, and more ways of getting them I.E., the chatting skills by looking in the mirror etc.,
    Actually having mirrors,
    Being able to buy clothes/change your outfit/hairstyle,
    More people,
    And better goals.
  • Did anyone complete the goal list...I unlocked 72 out of 73 and I was wonderin if anyone can put up a completed list so I can see the last goal I need to unlock. I would appreciate it. Thanks
  • in order to stop crashing, u have to uninstall then reinstall the game
  • At the loading screen you can see a complete list of all the goals you have competed and the ones you haven't (as long as you have unlocked them all). To unlock all the wishes you need to play the game as different sims each time with different personilites ie jack of all trades.
  • I cant figure out how to know what the ingredients are for the recipes. i know how to do most of everything else but i Just Cant figure out how to do that. and i know its probably very easy. someone please help!! thank you.
  • hey janice.you go to the inventory (where it shows what food and supplies ect. you own)
    then you scroll to the bottom and it lists all the recipes you have
    click on a recipe and it'll show you what you need and if you already have it
    hope that helps!
  • can i be partner with Kia?
    she is my boss also.
  • How do you get to your inventory, though?
  • To view your inventory you have to 'click' on the status bar (the one that shows the pics of bed/toilet etc. in either green/red). Once that shows up you go to different lists by scrolling left or right, I think there are arrows that you can 'click' on also to go left or right.
  • I achieved all the goals in the main checklist, but the pawnshop is still closed. Does anyone know why?
  • Brownope, you can be partner with your boss. You can also marry and woohoo with your boss!
  • Sharon have completed all 73?
  • Hey guys, thanks for all the great info, its really helping. I just have one more quick question. I married Jake and I was able to ask him to move in with me but then I divorced him and asked him to move out. I am now married to Luke, but I haven't been able to find the "move in" option. Help!
  • Heyas, I have three questions, and I would be most pleased if someone could answer them =] I always see all the other sims driving cars, but my sim has to walk everywhere. Is there anyway to get a car for my sim? Are there more than two house upgrades? Someone on another site said that they were able to get promoted from Vice President to Mayor, and all they did was keep asking Ruth about it. I've made best friends with every sim in town, but every time I talk to her, it goes that she thinks my sim is being casual and the dreaded red minus sign appears. Anyone know how to fix this? Oh, and I'm having the same problem with Luke that allieballie is having, why can't I get him to move in with me?
    So I guess that's four question, oops! But if anyone wants to ask me a question, I would be more than happy to try and answer it!
  • When you complete all the goals you can buy a car from the pawn shop.
    The are only 2 house upgrades
    vice president is the highest job mayor is the one below it. If you quit your job as vp you can then go back and get the mayor job and then you can ask ruth for a raise.
  • Wow awesome, thanks so much Pooh! =]
  • I was wondering how do you get the second house upgrade?
    or will it just come one day like the first?
  • Your guess is correct, its like the first one, it just comes.
  • Hey guys, I only have a couple goals left, and they are mainly the power seeker ones. I managed to make $5,000, upgrade my house once, and buy the right stereo but i can't remember what to do to unlock the nice stove and the nice tv. Anyone know? Thanks in advance =]
  • How do I "discover new recipes" ?
  • To discover new recipes go to the bistro and buy them.The way they worded it was confusing to me too at first!
    Can anyone answer my question about how to get the modern furniture update? I would really appreciate it!
  • How do I get new goals? I've completed 53 of them, but I keep getting the same ones over and over.
  • To unlock new goals you need to create a new sim with a different personalite ie choose 'jack of all trades' and next time 'sleaze' etc.
    You can always use your other memory slots for your other sims although you will need to delete them as the is only 3 memory slots and you will need create a sim for each personalite.
  • The modern furniture update will happen with time just like the house upgrade
  • how do u harvest crops in the game ive done almost all the wishes just need to start growing stuff but dont no how
  • how do you becomme a spouse on sims 3 for ipod touch??
    Also, how do you sell the fish in the food market??
    pleaaase! answer theeese.
    Thannk you so mucccch!
  • also how do you make a sim jelous of another sim?
    that is in the wish list.
    and happens when you finish all the goals?0
    thank you again.
  • Hey. How do I unlock house upgrades??
  • maira: To harvest crops you first need to make sure you've upgraded your house at least once. Then, go to the hobby store and buy a watering can, some fertilizer, and whatever plant seeds you want. Go back to your house, and on the left side, over by the kitchen (on the outside of the house) there is this patch of dirt with these white sticks standing up. Click one of the sticks and on the option menu that comes up, choose plant... and then pick whichever seeds you want to plant. Once you have planted the seeds, click on the stick again and choose tend. Your sim will tend it, and the plant should grow. Depending on the type of plant you chose, you may have to tend it twice. Then, you can click on it and choose harvest. Voila!
    jessie: 1. To become a spouse, you must first be partners with a sim and then in the be romantic menu, the option for propose marriage will appear. Choose that, and when you feel like, go to the romantic menu again and choose get married. To have your spouse move in with you, go to your house, call them to invite them over, and in the actions menu, click ask to move in. To sell fish in the market, scroll down to the fish you want to sell and instead of clicking the + button like you would if you were buying something, click the - button to unload the fish. Then click the green checkmark button. To make a sim jealous of you, go to the house of one of the married couples, make sure they are both there, and then do one of the romantic options to one of the sims. Their partner will then be jealous. When you unlock all the goals, the pawn shop opens. You can then buy a car and get a job there, with the highest salary being $600/ night. Nikolas: There's nothing you can do to unlock house upgrades, they just come after a certain number of sim days have passed. There are only two house upgrades.
    Hope this all helps!
  • Caligirl: Thank you som uch for helping mee theyy did helllp.
    But hoow do you becomme partners first?
  • Jessie: if u wana become partners u keep being romantic n then ask to marry them in the action things
  • Soooo...
    Even if I am married and my spouse living with me, I can't have kids in this sims???? What do you do after this??? The game seems very short... :(
  • No, you can't have kids. Hopefully they will come out with a different version or an update but I wouldn't get my hopes up. After you unlock the pawn shop, it's kinda just make your house amazing and buy every recipe.
  • Hahahhahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahhahhahaha I made my dude gay ahahhahahhahahahahhahhahahhahahahahahhahahahahahahh
  • I've completed 72 out of 73 goals and i've made every kind of sim there is but i can't figure out that last goal. can anyone help me?

  • OkAy

    Okay! Hoped it helpped
  • when u have a partner click on romantic then scroll down and itll say propose or woohoo! :D
  • how do you annoy a siim on ipod touchh??
  • How do you kick all the trash cans in town. I kick all but the gpal still shows incomplete.
  • Ivy have you kicked Bernie's his is inside his house and have you kicked you own trash can?
  • Can you make your house bigger likes on the pc sims?????????????????????????????
  • This game rocks i mastuurbate to it every nite
  • is there a money cheat?
    What is the fastest way of making money
  • XprincessX - Catch fish and sell them to the market. Also, if you talk to different sims about different things, they will ask you to do things for money... If you slap Ruth for Kia, she'll give you $90, or you can sell her a catfish for $200. Nina will give you $100 for a snapper... Marvell will give you a recipe for a salmon. Also, I found that working at the city hall and being friends with Ruth helps. If you have 10 friends, Ruth will promote you all the way up to Vice President, $100 daily. Just keep asking for promotions. $300 is the most a job pays daily.
    My question... I've completed all 73 goals... I heard that the pawn shop will hire you and pay $600 daily and sell you a car if you complete all goals. Is this true? I mean, I've completed everything, I have the highest house upgrade, the highest skills in cooking, repairing, gardening, and fishing. I'm Vice President at the City Hall, and I have the best of the best furniture... What now??? :(
  • CaliGirl - Have you opened the pawn shop? And gotten a car? Or did you just hear that??? I have done everything but that! I even have every recipe and have a few spouses and everyone in town is my best friend! I'm ready to be a criminal for the pawn shop and have a gay looking blue crown Vic wannabe car!
  • I completed all the tasks and as soon as I had I got a screen telling me I had completed all the tasks and then the pawn shop was open I don't think I did any think extra other than all the tasks.
    But don't get to excited about the car - all it does is instead of see yourself walking from one house to another a little car is show going there instead. I think it would of been more fun if I could move the car around with my finger.
  • I found one other way to discover a recipe! Keep talking to Marcel (bistro boss) about fishing - eventually he'll ask you to bring him a salmon and in exchange he'll share with you a family salmon recipe!
  • What's the highest paying job i can get at the Lab. I think i get like 240/day and when i ask my boss (i forgot her name) she gets angry at me. I've been looking for other jobs but they pay like 70/day.
  • Pooh, I'm missing 2 goals. I've used each personality, yet it still says I'm missing 2. How do i get them? Also, on the "Kick over all the trash cans in town" goal, i went house-to-house in clock rotation and kicked them all including mine. It still says I didnt kick them all. Whats up with that? I'm asking you because you seem like the expert lol
  • I'm new to sims and i was wondering if you could do that in app purchase thing on the stereo to get It to play your music. So can you do it yet I watched the apple event and sawed that. Also if you are at a budding relationship. Does that mean your married?
  • Why is "your ego is too big for your body " appears thanks.
  • I have the app and there is this girl i want to be my date, partner, fiance or spouce but she is my best friend and i cant do anything to stop it, how is it that i can stop someone being my wife but not my friend? Is there a way? BTW the demo is rubbish but the game is really good on ipod touch or iphone.
  • Oh and to Pooh (comment 104) what tasks?
  • hi need hepl,
    the game works well on my iphone but there is a problem,every time i restart the sims there are no saved games available, does someone knows why?
  • How do I unlock the last 2 goals? I've completed 71 out of 73 and used all personalities, but can't figure out how to unlock the last 2. I wanna be able to use pawn shop.
  • To foggers you have to be "rude" to your best friend by insulting, arguing, etc several times until her relationship with your sim starts declining to good friend then switch it up by "romance"ing her
  • Sasuke the 2 goal you're missing have you unlocked them or are they just not compleated.
    With the trash cans it is very easy to miss one I ended up going around everyone twice as I must have missed one the first time. Make sure the goal is locked in before you try otherwise it will not count towards your main goal list.
  • Simsfan2 it sounds like you have done everything to unlock all the goals it would be intresting to know which 2 you are missing I think I might need to write them all out so you can check which you are missing so we can figure out why they haven't been unlocked.
  • G "your ego is too big for your body" means your dead. The game has a few different ways of dieing some you can prevent (like by feeding them) and some you can't (like by a monkey) but you don't need to worry you can just log back in and carry on playing from the last saved point.
  • Foggers I say goals, tasks and wishes as the same thing. Sorry for any confusion I also can't spell sorry.
  • Thanks Pooh. I already got the trash cans goal on the 4th try though. But I'm still missing 2 goals. Meaning: I have discovered 73 out of 75. I dont know which 2 im missing. Yes, I tried every personality (Jack of all Trades, Jerk, Sleaze, Maniac, Nice Guy, and the Power/ Money thing).
  • Sasuke - right I think what i need to do is write the whloe list out so we can find out which goals are missing so we can try to figure out why you haven't unlocked them.
    I'm busy this weekend so I'm not sure I'm going to get a chance of getting on my pc but I hopeful I'll get a chance on Monday and we can figure what it is that you are missing.

  • Insult five people
    thats 71. I've created many Sims with different personalities and the other two goals do not appear. Anyone???
  • I have a theory about unlocking the last 2 goals, has anyone tried discovering ALL of the traits for all of your neighbors? This might unlock the last 2 goals...worth a try
  • Lol! I just unlocked goal 72. "Get a job". My sim was fired and unemployed for a few days and was mooching off of my best friends for food.
  • @ Pooh. Ahhhhh. I see. How do i find out the traits? I've always had a problem with that.
    @ Dude who made the long list: You're missing the Achieve Highest Cleaning Skill Level

  • To view the other sims traits, approach them then press the button on the bottom right that looks like two people. It will show 4 empty traits with ??? You have to figure them out by having different types of converations (talk about fishing, tell joke, flirt, insult, etc). Once you unleash their trait it will appear

  • Pooh - thanks for the last two goals
    Sasuke - not sure there is a "cleaning" goal. Never had the option to clean anything.
    Simsfan2 - thanks for advice on how to get the "get a job" goal to appear. I've never been fired. Now, just to figuire out how to get "try fishing" to appear. My Sims always fish right away, so I'll try creating one that doesn't.
  • Chuckle - yep just make a new sim for the try fishing and don't do any fishing until it apears which shouldn't take to much time.
  • well i have notice no one has said that when you get married with someone you can invite them over then click actions and move in and they will move in with you.
  • Pooh - thanks for the goals list now I know which goal I'm missing, I needed "buy a fishing kit". I usually always bought it right away and never waited for it to appear...thanks!
  • SUCCESS! I was finally able to unlock the final two goals and accomplish them, so I can be a criminal. Thanks Pooh and Simsfan2!
    Drake - I didn't get any benefits for having someone move in, did you? I heard that in other Sims games, when someone moves is, you get their money and I got nothing. You don't have to be married for them to move in, but they have to be in your house when you ask.
    I also get no benefit from the wish list after you have already accomplished that particular goal. I stopped accepting the wishes that I've already done. Does anyone know of benefits to repeating the same goals?
  • Simsfan2 - you're welcome. Thanks for the new challenge of discovering all the other Sims' traits. Its gonna take a long time. I've spent entire days talking to a Sim and only discovered two traits.
  • @Simsfan2: Omg, i got you and Pooh mixed up. My bad. I need to read the name before assuming who it is >_> Thanks. I've figured out all the traits for 1 person (my spouse). For everyone else, I've found 2 at most.
    @Pooh. Yehhhh. Apparently I'm wrong, considering you have the list there >>
  • how do you create a new sim with different personalities?
  • Chuckie - Glad to hear your now a "criminal". I am now a "safe hacker" making $500/night. I don't think there is any benefit to repeating the goals, I also just ignore them.
  • Jennifer, when you load the game, rather than choosing your current Sim you create a new one. In order to unlock all the goals, you will be deleting and creating many Sims, so don't too attached to any of them.
  • how do you complete
    "own the best house" Goal? that's the only goal I have not completed
  • I know its probably the easiest to do but how do you stay fed, rested, clean... etc for 3 days I've tried everything and it still won't say that I've completed it... thanks in advance!
  • Highheels - I believe buying both upgrades causes you to own the best house. It takes time to allow both upgrades to be offered and money to buy them.
    Hunniibee - yes, simply stay clean, etc. for 3 days. Not sure why it doesn't work for you. Are you making sure nothing goes in the red?
  • what do you buy to make minestrone?
  • @Simba
    first buy the recipe, then check in the overview of what food you have, on the bottom of that list are the recipes, where you see what ingredient is needed...
    can anyone tell me, how i reach the top of the career ladder? every time i try to get a raise, my boss (and spouse) is denying...
  • Ollerich, when you ask for a raise from your boss, he or she should give you a reason they refuse. It depends which job you have as to what they want you to do before getting a raise. For example, the restaurant wants you to be skilled in cooking and fishing, I believe. One of the jobs just wants you to have more experience, so you can't get the first raise until you've worked there for two weeks. I think another job asks you to have alot of friends. I also believe you must be friends with your boss before asking for the raise. Hope this helps.
  • how do i finance in the Sims 3 so i can ask my partner to marry me?
  • in the Sims 3 one of the characters i started is partners with someone who already has a partner. is it still possibe for me to ask that person to marry me?
    how do i get my partner to move in with me?
  • please help me.
  • Jessica - if the person is your partner, aren't you already married to him. I believe you can marry someone who is married to someone else. You must invite the person to your house by calling them on the phone and when they get there, ask them to move in. However, I found no benefit to having a roommate.
  • @Chukie: thanks for the tip, got it now :-)
    @Jessica: yes, i just married Jill, who was the Partner of Jack, that's no problem
  • It says I have to finace b4 I can ask my partner to marry me. How do I finace so Ivan get married?
  • Jessica:
    Do you mean fiancee? As in what you are called to be the "newly wed"? Just go to Actions and you should be able to have an option that says "get married". You don't need to finance anything. I believe you mean fiance/fiancee, haha.
    Just keep on flirting, telling flirty jokes, and give smooches so you can take it to the next level and be partners. That way, when you flirt, smooch, and woohoo you'll be able to propose with no problem. And when you are ready to get married, just click "get married".
    If you need more help, leave a reply and I'll get back to you.
    (:
    -Lizzy
  • Lizzy, thanks for clearing that up. The finance word had me perplexed.
  • in one of the posts above it says To WOOHOO you have to romance first you need a tender embrace then -hot smooch 1 to 2 times- back to romance and “scroll Down WHOO-HOO is under hot smooch. i did what it says and when i went to romance and looked for the whoohoo option under hot smooch it still hadn't been add to my romance list.
    Also in one of the posts above it says To get married you have to romance and be nice ….then you get to finance and then romance some more and be nice then you can ask to get married. i did romance and be nice part but it still wont let me fiancee and give me the option ask to get married. also how do i get the person i'm dating to move in with me? i tried inviting them over but on the list it still wont give the option to ask them to move in with me.
    for each of my questions above can you list the steps in the order i have to do them so i can get the options that answers each of my questions. thank you very much.
  • Jessica - just keep doing all the romantic stuff until whoo hoo pops up on the list. I think you have to be their "date" before you can whoo hoo them.
    When you are in your house, touch the phone on the wall. Ask the person to come to your house. Once they come over, touch the person and scroll down to actions. One of the actions should be to ask the person to move in.
  • Jessica, here are the steps in relationships. You have to continue to choose romantic options to make it to each level of romance, like flirt, etc. Friend - must start romance from this level. If you are already good friend or best friend, be rude until you go back to friend Budding Romance - at this level, you can smooch Date - at this level, you can whoo hoo Partner - at this level, you can ask them to marry you and can ask them to move in (must both be in your house before they will move in) Fiancee - at this level, you get married NOTE: to move in, ask to marry and get married, touch the other person and scroll down - sometimes you have to choose actions
  • Jessica:
    To get someone to move in with you, they should be married, fiance, or really really best friends with you.
    They must have a strong relationship with you.
    If they are only a friend/good friend, they will get "creeped out". haha.
    If you want someone to move in with you: Go to your house. There should be a phone inside your home, it's usually out of your bedroom door, to the left. Invite the person over who you want to move in.
    (make sure your relationship with him/her is strong with you) Talk to them, and under "actions" should be ask to move in. They should accept, and they will live in your house. There!
    If you choose to divorce with your spouse, or want your best friend to move out, just go under "actions" again and ask to move out. (:
    To get married...
    When you are in the stage of "date", keep on romancing to be on the "partner" level.
    the ones that work best are:
    Hot Smooch
    Flirt
    Flirty Joke (under "be funny")
    Woohoo
    Soon you will be "partners".
    Smooch more, flirt, and woohoo.
    After, it should give you an option under "Be Romantic" saying "propose marriage".
    You will be engaged. Then when you smooch, and then the option will say "get married".
    (:
    Any questions? Comments?
    Reply to me :D
    I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
  • got all of the goals now, got a car and earning 600$... not much left to do... hopefully an update will give you more things to do...
    what i found out (am not sure if it's a bug): if you have your partner moved into your house and you still only have a cheap bed, only one can sleep on the bed. but if you watch the partner sleeping first, you can afterwards (long)sleep in the same bed too, even if the partner is already lying there... :-)
  • Ollerich:
    Good for you! I'm still getting the goals...ahha.
    I hear there's gonna be another update in the future to have kids in the game. Hopefully it's actually true.
  • Ollerich - you can sleep in the same small/cheap bed without watching first. First click on a spot on the other side of bed so you are standing there. Then choose long sleep.
  • in order to get into a relationship, you need to start flirting once you become friends...at that point, anything romantic...and telling a flirty joke are what you need to keep doing...if you push the relationship button it will show you two different relationships happening at the same time...i.e. good friend, budding relationship...you need to keep doing romantic actions for this to change....you can have a romantic relationship with anyone, gay or straight...
  • How do yo reach the top of the carreer ladder? annd how do you creep-out anotther sim?
    thannks.
  • @Jessie: check out Post 145 from Chuckie, he answered your question already... :-)
    @Chuckie: thanks, that works too, true
    @Liz: i hope too that they put some new stuff in it, or after playing it, all you can do is just earning money, which gets boring pretty fast...
  • how do you make a sim jealous of you?
  • You'll have to find a couple of Sims who are married, and constantly flirt and romance one of them to make the other partner jealous.
  • @Jessie - I cut and paste the answer to the first question below:
    Ollerich, when you ask for a raise from your boss, he or she should give you a reason they refuse. It depends which job you have as to what they want you to do before getting a raise. For example, the restaurant wants you to be skilled in cooking and fishing, I believe. One of the jobs just wants you to have more experience, so you can’t get the first raise until you’ve worked there for two weeks. I think another job asks you to have alot of friends. I also believe you must be friends with your boss before asking for the raise. Hope this helps.
    As for creeping someone out, go to the house of someone who is not a good friend, use their toilet and shower and eat their food out of the fridge. The fastest way is to go into their house without knocking. When you are outside their door, just click on the toilet and you will go in as long as they are home. If they are not home, the door will be locked and you cannot enter.

  • Thannk yooou @Chuckie and @Ollerich.
    Buut how doo yoou reach the topp of the career ladder?
  • Jessie - you have to get raises from your boss and keep getting promoted until you get the top job. Use instructions above to get raises.
  • a good way to save up money without bothering someone: start a romance with someone, then make him/her a partner and ask him/her to move into your house, after that, you have an empty house (where your partner lived before), use that house to eat, sleep, shower... :-D (i know that you can eat in any house, but like that you have the house all for yourself)
  • The easiest pair to make jealous is Jack and Jill, all I did was make one pass at Jack and he disliked me immediately and she was jealous.
  • hi i have the sims 3 app on my ipod touch so i don't know if the actions list and how you would complete the goals are set up differently in the ipod touch app then they in the game made for the computer and other game systems but i hope you can help me get past where i'm stuck at. Also i don't know if this will help you guys with my problems but i'm already at the partners stage of my relationship and am not getting the option to be fiancees with my partner or ask em to live with me or have woohoo to choose from under my romance options and tried everything you told me to before.
    I did everything you told me to do and have been partners for a longtime now but for some reason the woohoo option wont appear under the hot smooch option so i have it to choose from when ever i want to use it. what do i do?
    Also i did all of the fallowing: Go to my house,
    go to the phone on my wall and invite the person over who i want to move in. (make sure your relationship with him/her is strong with you)I talked to them under and still wont give me the option to ask my partner move in with me. what do i do?
    Also i keep romancing and being nice but it still wont let me get past the partners stage to the fiancee stage so i can ask my partner to marry me. what do i do?
  • @Ollerich - I was unable to enter the empty house that my live in spouse used to live in. The house was always locked. How did you get in?
  • @Chuckie: you're right, with one of my other Sims it doesn't work, strange, with the Sim that i'm a master thief and own a car, i can just barge in...
  • well, was just coming to my mind: as a Thief, you probably can go into all the houses, no matter if someone is at home... :-D
  • hey i just got this game to and can i complete all the goals with my sim thats a manic now?
  • @Ollerich - its kinda cool how the game reflects life. The theif can break into houses.
    @Megan - My suggestion is to read all above posts. You will get many hints including how you must create several Sims to complete all goals.
  • tahnk you
  • I completed all goals...i tracked them, but nothing has changed...what have I missed
  • the only things that are changing: you can now get a job at the Pawn Shop (earning 600$ after the promotions), and if you shop at the Pawn Shop, you can get a car...
  • Will there ever be an update, come on ea we have been waiting a long while for the sims 3 with in app purchases and such, what's the hold up?
  • the only reason it crashes for people is that you don't have a lot of memory left. This game rocks woth 9.99 forever
  • Ollerich, I am the CEO at the Quickmart making $240 but cannot get a raise from Bernie. He does not give me a reason when I ask for a raise. Can anyone help me?
  • Scott, are you friends with Bernie?
  • I am best friends with bernie.
  • @Scott: if you ask for a raise, does Bernie react with a red minus sign? that means you cannot get more raises, normally you get a reason why you cannot get a raise, unless you reached the highest level... you always can quit the job and get another one. at the Bistro for example, you need good cooking and fishing skills, so if your cooking and fishing skills are already at 5 points, you can get a job there, and ask for a raise multiple times at the same time to reach the top of the career ladder and earn 300$
  • He does react with the red minus sign. If i can't give me more raises than why have I not received credit for the "top of the career ladder" goal which has been in my wish list for a very early in the game? It is the only goal i need to complete.
  • Scott, are you playing on an Iphone? I don't remember any job that pays in increments other than $100's. All jobs paid me $100, then $200, then $300, etc. Also, I thought CEO was the top and I would think it would satisfy the top of career goal.
    As for the QuickMart, you have to work ten days for each raise. When you ask Bernie for a raise, he should tell you how many days you need to work. If he says 7/10, then you have to work 3 more days for the next raise. The Quickmart takes the longest to get raises, you may want to consider a different work place.
    Luckily, even in today's economy, you can easily get a new job in the Sim's world.
  • Cool Bug!
    to get into someones house when theyre not there, click on their back door and select open. usually the sim will walk through the house and u will be inside. it has to be an upgraded hoise though.
  • @pandamaster: you probably already have a job at the Pawn Shop, because then you are a thief and can go into all the houses, no matter if someone is at home and no matter through which door... for me at least it is not working to go through someones back door without being a thief...
  • i was best friends with jonny, but i wanted to start a romance with him.
    i noticed, if you're best friends, you can't go past "tender embrace" and the budding romance bar won't come up.
    i decided to be rude to jonny (slap, humiliate) until the bar doesn't say best friend anymore, but says friend.
    it's easier to create a romance with a friend than a best friend.
    ^_^
    hope this helpsssssss =]
    -fare____<3
  • Do you have to occupy all 3 files with different sims with different personalities to comlete all the goals or do they just show uo on 1?? Like for jack of all trades can woohoo 8 times in 1 day show up or wat??
  • Fare - yes, you cannot become romantic with a good or best friend. See posts above.
    Person - you will need to create different traits for each Sim to be offered all goals. I think I had to create 4 or 5. So, I had to delete a couple.
  • How can you get your spouse to ask you to move in???????
  • @Person: you have to invite her over, then you have the option to select under the Actions-menu
  • But isnt that for her 2 live wit u?? Not the other way around??
  • yes, that is for her to live with you, there is no other way around...
  • in the sims three (PC version) the sims can have kid. i wold like if the could have kide on the iphone version a nd also... THE PAWN SHOP WILL NOT OPEN FOR MEEEEE!!!!
  • if you completed all 73 goals, you'll be able to get a car and a job at the PawnShop...
  • I have sim3 on my iPhone I like the game but I don't know how to fish? I cannt manage to catch a fish help help help........
  • I've tried to post some answers to this forum many times but it doesn't seem to appear and now it's telling me it's duplicated, but I may as well answer Mamasita's question:
    Go to the Hobby Store and buy a fishing rod.
    Go to the lake.
    Click on one of the blinking white anchors at the lake (there are 4 of them) along the water's edge.
    Sway your iPhone / iPod from side to side and watch how the fishing line moves. Try to get the line to align with the fish you see swimming around.
    Keep moving back and forth until you get a 'lock' on the fish. You can see you've locked the fish when the green icon starts flashing next to the fish which means it's time to reel the fish in.
    Jerk the iPhone / iPod forward or backward violently. This causes you to pull in the fishing line.
    You've now caught your first fish! Congratulations!
  • Wow! That's a lot of information, even starting from post 57. Well, it seems some questions have not been answered, so here is my contribution to this thread:
  • 1) Never cook in your own home!
    There is a bug that it is possible for something to break WHILE you are cooking in your own home and this will cause the view to pan over to the broken equipment. At this point, you cannot pan back to the stove and if you still have a lot of time your pots will over boil and you will loose. Instead, you can always gain your cooking skill by cooking at someone else's house, where stuff doesn't break!
    a) Never cook at Nina's house
    She doesn't have a dining area
  • 2) Save often!
    The game crashes a lot and it only saves between scenes (house, town, lake); to save your game otherwise, click the ellipses (dots) in the lower left corner and click "save game and continue".
  • 3) Behave "romantically":
    Some of you have been complaining about certain options not being available. Options like 'Woo Hoo' only become available once the person you're talking to feels you're being 'romantic'. Make sure they don't think you're being 'casual', 'friendly' or 'funny'.
  • 4) Be rude:
    In order to slap someone, you first need to be rude by insulting, arguing and for a significant other humiliating them. Do this a bit and when you've sufficiently hurt them, you now have the option to slap as well. Slapping someone can sometimes reveal a character trait!
  • 5) The conversation options scroll!
    Some of you have been saying you can't get to options like 'Woo Hoo', 'Propose Marriage' or 'Marry'. When in the conversation selection screen, look closely at the arc that connects the options. Notice how some of it is shaded lightly inside and some of it is dark? This is a scroll bar, so to speak. You scroll the options by swiping your finger in the opposite direction of scrolling as if you're picking up the options to move them around. Once you've sufficiently romanced someone, go to the 'Romantic' options and scroll to the bottom, where you will see 'Whoo Hoo' and 'Propose Marriage'. Also, note in the main screen you have a few things under romantic: Rude, Actions and Goodbye.
    Interestingly, I didn't know what Whoo Hoo was when I started out: I thought it was make someone cheer or laugh, like Whoo Hoo, the Dodgers won the Pennant! If I'd known what it really meant, I SO would not have locked in that goal so early! She's not that kind of girl!
  • 6) Great fishers never catch Catfish
    Once you reach a reasonable level with fishing, never lock a goal that requires you to catch a Catfish: it almost never comes. You have a lot of Tuna and Salmon and even Snapper at the higher levels, but almost no Catfish. What's worse, the Catfish look exactly like the trout (only slightly slower) so you can't abort the fishing until you get the Catfish because you won't know until it's too late.
  • 7) No update is likely to come -- at least not for free
    In fact, like Spore, I guess the Sims 3 for iPhone has all the features you'll ever expect for that game right now. Spore specifically limits you to the Protista level: you can never evolve beyond one cell, and they probably never will have an iPhone game that allows the Metazoa to rise from the ooze. The Sims 3 for iPhone is a diversion meant as an elaborate advertising campaign to get you to buy the full version for PC / Macintosh. Enjoy what you've got, and if you want more, buy it for your computer.

  • 9) Never report a crime when you're earning $250 already:
    There are various ways to get a promotion in the Sims. One of these is by reporting that someone is stealing widgets. This is a reasonable way to climb the career ladder, but once you reach the penultimate step, getting this type of promotion will get you to the top of the career ladder without the game even realizing it! For reaching the top of the career ladder to count, you actually need to get the job offer and see the job description placard on your screen. Otherwise, the goal counter does not see it, which clearly is another bug.
    If this has happened to you, as others have suggested, just quit your job, re-apply and ask for a raise from your boss. He will present the job offer, you accept and Bob's your uncle you've achieved your goal!
  • I've never achieved all 73 goals so I can't speak to that nefarious pawn shop but those are some useful tidbits I think some of you may appreciate.

  • Hi,
    I indeed managed to open up the pawn shop
    I managed to be a master criminal (thanks nina !)
    I bought a car
    OK, then what's next ? Is that it ?
  • yeap, that's it... (pretty boring, i know), all we can do is waiting for an update...
  • OK SO I KNOW THAT THIS IS THE IPHONE BLOG OR WHAT NOT BUT THIS IS THE MOST HELPFUL PLACE I HAVE FOUND ANSWERS AND HOPEFULLY A FELLOW ANDROID USER OR MAYBE AN IPHONE/IPOD USER CAN HELP ME OUT! OK SO I AM STUCK ON THIS D**N KICK OVER ALL TRASHCANS IN TOWN WISH AND I TRIED TO GO TO BERNIES HOUSE BUT HE DOESNT HAVE ONE IN HIS HOUSE ON THE ANDROID PHONE. I HAVE KICKED EVERYBODY'S (WHICH WERE OUTSIDE THEIR HOUSE) EVEN MINES AND I HAVE EVEN WAITED FOR THEM TO REACT THINKING MAYBE THAT WAS THE PROBLEM BUT STILL NOTHING!!! IDK WTF TO DO!!! IF YOU CAN BE OF ANY ASSISTANCE PLEASE HELP ME! IM NOT SURE IF THEY WILL EMAIL ME TO TELL ME THERE WAS A REPLY OR NOT BUT I WILL BE CHECKING THIS ON A DAILY BASIS SO HOPEFULLY THERE IS AN ANSWER SOMEWHERE OUT THERE IN CYBERSPACE FOR ME!!!
  • Bernies bin is inside his house. In the room next to the bathroom.
  • I've made my sim do almost every wish he wants, and i cant make him want to bu a better couch. how do i make my sim want to do this wish again.
  • how do u leave town
    i e go 2 another town
    or cant u do it?????
  • @ JoShUaJaMeShElL: the wishes are coming back randomly, you just have to be patient or try to make a new sim... @qwerty: you can't leave town at the moment, maybe in a future update where you can buy addons, you could leave town...
  • you -do not- have to be friends before you start a romantic relationship! i started a budding romance after two sims were only aquaintances. & the direction a relationship goes depends on if you do more friendly traits or more romantic ones.
    ive unlocked 72 goals- im apparently missing "accumulate $1000" because i always make money right off the bat. im playing the power seeker right now, so i should be done with this game soon enough.
  • My sim can't cook on the stove there's something in thier path and they can't get to the stove. But there isn't so my sim can't eat except to snack or eat out or at another sims. Has anyone else had this problem?
  • When you try getting to the stove, cancel the action and try again. Or, you can try multiple times in a row. That worked for me.
  • In your opinion, what is the best way to get money? Without finding all the wishes and getting the 600$ job. I do fishing and kick over trash cans and slap sims. What is the best to do?
  • Merryland: Try moving your stove
  • Thanks for all the posts. Especially the full list of 73. Just started playing a few days back and enjoying it. I assume that if I complete all the goals and unlock the Pawn Shop with one character it works for all the characters currently created. Is this correct. Really like my first character. He is a sleaze and resembles me. Hope to use the other two slots to go for the remaining 18 goals. Happy SIMing and WooHoo your brains out!
    "People think your Sim is being friendly."
  • Does anybody have a list of all the other sims traits? Having a realy hard time with a few of them...
  • Bout da crashin if y'all got an app dat runs continuously (ie. Virtual villagers) or one dat crashes heaps (like evry 5 Min) delete it. my sims 3 crashed like every 5 min now it dies like evry 5 days.
  • Hey Dori
    try Wakins sim up when they sleepin cuz they might be lazy or a slob or whateva da trait is.
  • hey everyone how do u "meet all the sims in town"??
  • just visit them at home over the weekend or in the evening, when they are not working... or look for them driving and walking around...
  • @ bang bang.. I'll try that thanks
  • can i create my spouse/partner? or do i have to use an existing on in the game?
  • Hi Pooh , i've discovered and completed 53 goals but i am having hard time to discover new goals? Can you tell me how to discover more goals? or which sims to chat , what topic to chat for new goals? I heard after married and woo hoo , spouse can get pregnant , but no matter how many times i woo hoo with my spouse , there isnt any pregnant options. HELP!!!!! how to discover more and new goals??? :(
  • i downloaded the sims 3 app for iphone and itouch and have not encountered a single one of the problems listed above. the game has not crashed even once, and im not quite sure what you are talking about because my game does in fact auto save. (although maybe it does not seem that way because when you reopen the game you find your sims back at home??? {even though the sim is not at the same place as when you leave the game [accidentally or not] all relationship progress is saved as well as skills, etc}) i love the game. my only complaint is that the in the game for iphone and ipod touch sims cannot have kids or families. the rules are a little different but it is still a great game! compare the game to the pc or mac version of sims 1. :)(i am not a gamer by nature but have been playing the sims on my mac for maybe 6 or 7 years...)
  • @jj go the lake on weekends or late at night
  • I'm having trouble cooking properly. I can get to the point where you can shake the pots on the stove, but they still get too hot and I always fail. Is there a trick to cooling them?
  • you have to shake your iPhone to shake the pots...
  • I can't get to the inventory or cook the minestrone;(help
  • i've completed all tasks,got the pawn shop unlocked, working as a criminal, even got the sims 3 cheat and have $65,535. i have the best house and best furniture. what now?!
  • best way to get money is if you have a jailbrokwn iphone, download the sims patch in cydia. you get $65,535 and you can quit your job and pimp your house!!!
  • @Nicky: what are you having trouble with?
  • How do you whoo hoo?
  • Ok, how do you unlock the pawn shop?
  • scroll up to get info on WooHooing. to unlock pawn shop you need to complete all 73 tasks.
  • What is a pawn shop? Like what does it sell?
  • pawn shop sells a car. so u can get across town faster. also I can get a job there and the highest paid job is $600/night working as a criminal.
  • pooh - are you still on this forum?
  • Is there a way to change your clothes in the game or buy new ones?
  • And do new people ever move to the town?
  • no and no, you cannot change your clothes and there are no new people moving into town... waiting for an update...
  • thanks :)
  • hi, can anyone help me please?! One of my goals is to make a sim jelous of me...? I have no idea how on earth to do that?!!! any ideas would be sooooo happy to recieve.
    Also, how do i sell fish that i have caught???
    Thank you soooo mmuch!
    x
  • Celie-to make a sim jealous of you, flirt with their spouse, etc. Anything to make someone jealous in real life. To sell fish, go to the market, and click shop. Go to the fish section and subtract the number of fish. You get the money. I hope this helps! Also, does anyone know of an e-mail we can send to asking for an update?
  • niche games...
  • more info please for this games,
    is there any hits or cheats...
  • Hi I've found 70 out of 73 goals, made every sim and completed all their personal goals!!! Can anyone help? It's driving me insane!
  • check Post 129 here (http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2009/06/02/quick-app-sims-3-iphone/#comment...) to see what goals you are missing... you have to be patient, the goals all will come up
  • i love this game and is one of my best games its definately up there with touch cricket pocket god and fifa 10.
  • What's the 600 dollar job? I thought it was just the 300$ job for VP in governement. Is there any money cheats?
  • the 600 $ job you get, when you unlock all the 73 goals, then you can have a job as a criminal in the pawn shop
  • excuse me but how to i try out fishing
  • I am up to goal 49 but can't unlock any more. Do I have to create a new Sim in a new game to get more goals? I don't want to have to start again.
  • It is very fun.
  • hey i got married 2 jake in sims 3 for ipod touch but i click on jake HE STILL WITH MAGGIE!!! that gets me very pissed off now! how to i get maggie to leave the house and stop being with jake we now i got her on nemesis mode everytime i kiss jake or go near him she starts crying and keeps kicking me out and think im insluting her! that one pycho woman she needs to stop crying me and jake is married how to i get him to come over and move into my house!!!!!

  • Ive seen a lot of people saying that their gane crashes, but mine's never done that! It could be bcuz i have a 2n gen with all the updates. I do have a question: how do you get the 'Duscover new recipie' wish to reappear?
    @The Unknown Girl- Call Him on the phone and invite him over, that way Maggie isn't even around. When he gets there, scroll down to Actions and select 'Ask To Move In'.
  • HELP! I somehow sent my game into fast-forward! i can't get it out! HELP
  • How do you get things to break fastest? I can't get anything to break for the repairing (need 1 level up and max level) I know that they break by using but I keep using things over and over trying but no luck. Any help? And is there a thing that breaks more than others?
  • This may sound stupid but why do i have 75 goals and everybody only saying 73
  • Amber, I read at another site that different devices can have a slightly different list of goals. I have an iPhone, and have 73 goals, but other devices can have 75.
    Also, for everyone who is having trouble with one or more goals: I bought a fishing kit early on, before it was given as a "wish". So when that goal came up ("Buy a fishing kit"), I thought it was just another repeat (it repeats goals all the time), and I ignored it. It's usually ok to ignore wishes that you know for sure you've accomplished and see them as checked off on the master list. But since I didn't accept it, the game acted as though I hadn't done it! So I had to sell my fishing kit back to the hobby store (use the minus sign), and then wait for that wish/goal to come up again, which it did pretty soon. Then I bought it again, and it checked it off the list. In other words, don't get ahead of the game and accomplish a goal before the game makes it a wish. It just won't register otherwise.
  • i have 75 goals too
  • why's everyone keep saying professor? faster professor, etc? you mean processor, perhaps?
  • To begin a romantic relationship, first of all you have to be nice, then insult or agrue with the sim, then you apologise, be nice then insult. it works for me.
    does anyone know how to meet all the sims in town?
  • The easiest way to meet all the Sims in town is to go to every house shown on the map. You need to go when the Sims will be home, usually all day Saturday and Sunday, or at night after work. The exceptions to this: Unemployed Sims (Jake and Theresa) are usually home all day every day, and Sims with culinary careers (Luke, Marcell, and Jill) will be home on Sundays or Mondays (but they won't be home on Saturday). Everyone else works Monday to Friday, with some variation in hours.
    You could also haphazardly meet people walking by or driving by (tap them as they pass you), or at the lake they may come up to you. There are 13 other Sims in the game besides yours. To check your list of friends (to be sure you've got them all): Tap your wish list in bottom right area, then scroll left by dragging your finger to the right until you get to the "Relationships" page. They're in this order for me: Ruth, Jack, Jill, Bernie, Maggie, Jake, Marcell, Theresa, Walter, Nina, Luke, Johnny and Kia.
  • Someone above said that it wasn't possible to change your Sim's clothes, but I was able to when my Sim was at home (nowhere else it seems). Just click on your Sim when they are in their home, then click on "Edit Appearance", then on the green check for "yes", and you're in. You can change their hair and all their clothes, but not any other traits (you have to create a new Sim to do that).
  • Hi all thanks so much for all your comments, its really helping me though the game. My only problem is that I have upgraded my house twice, and I still dont see a patch of land to plant on? I have looked behind my kitchen as well. Does anyone have an idea why this is/how to fix it?
    Thanks in advance
  • Sorry, I don't know. For my garden, if you're standing at the front door, the garden is just outside the back left corner of the house, to the left of the kitchen. It looks like cleared dirt with 6 tall wooden stakes in the ground.
    Btw, you only need one seed each of bell pepper, corn and tomato. The same plant will grow new produce over and over again after you harvest them. But for the lettuce and carrots, you have to plant a new seed after every harvest, so buy the max amount of lettuce seed and carrot seed if you plan on gardening much.
    I hope your garden eventually shows up!
  • hi i am partners with jake but icant move in with him there is nothing that says move in plz can some one help thanks
  • How do I meet all the Sims in town? I've gone to all the houses, hung out at the lake, but it still says I haven't met that goal. So far I've met Ruth, Jack, Jill, Bernie, Maggie, Jake, Marcell, Theresa, Walter, Nina, Luke, Johnny and Kia. Who am I missing?
  • How do you unlock all of the goals? Do you have to create a new Sim to do so? I saw the list of goals and have completed some that haven't come up for me yet -- do they have to come up as a wish or goal before you can accomplish them? Also, I've met 13 Sims, so it concerns me that it hasn't checked off the goal of "meet all the Sims in town".
  • jen178: I don't think you can move in with someone else, you have to ask them to move in with you, but they have to be your house in order to ask them. So first you have to be home (on a weekend or in the evening, so they aren't at work) call them on the phone and invite them over, and then ask them to move in with you (I think it's under "romantic").
  • Aida: There are only 13 other Sims in the game, so it sounds like you've met them all. And in regards to your second post, yes, I think the goals do have to come up as a wish or goal before you can accomplish them. That may be why it still lists it as a goal, even though you've accomplished it.
    That happened to me, but it was for the goal "Buy a watering can". So when I figured out the problem, I just sold back the one I had already bought, and bought a new one, and the problem was solved. In your case, I'm not sure how to "unmeet" someone. Maybe when you create a new Sim, that goal will come up again, and if you haven't met that goal with the new Sim, then you can meet the goal and have it checked off the list.
    To unlock all of the goals, you have to create one Sim of every type - Jack of all Trades, Sleeze, etc. - because each type has a differnt list of "Persona Goals" which are part of the master goal list.
  • Please help me to knows all the personalities of Sims 3... still missing a few... thanks

  • How do you upgrade your home?
  • Choco - In addition to the above traits you list, I have the following:
    Ruth - Shy
    Maggie - Absent-Minded
    Jake - Genius
    Theresa - Shy
    Kia - Conversationalist
  • Roxy: The ability to upgrade your house comes with time (probably by achieving some unspecified milestone); just keep making money, achieving goals, etc. and then you'll get a notice about a renovation business that's available. To access it, you have to be home, and then click on the chair icon in the lower left corner. then there will be an option on the far right. The first renovation costs $1000. Some more time has to pass before you get the ability to upgrade again. The second costs $2500 if I remember correctly.
  • I was wondering if anyone sees the purpose of getting a car? I compared one Sim without a car, and one with a car, and they both seem to get to their destination in the same amount of time. I was hoping I'd have access to other destinations, but no, you can only drive around town. And it costs a fair amount ($2000) for gaining no apparent benefit. Let me know if anyone has found a good reason for a car.
  • Btw if you can't find the answer to your question at this site, there's another site I've used with a lot of info too: http://appmodo.com/683/the-sims-3-full-review-for-iphone-and-ipod-touch-...
  • I have played two games of the sims 3 for the iPhone and have saved money, got the upgrades on my house, all the best furniture and electronics and such, and my career is great. But I'm just wondering if this is where the game comes to a stop and now all I have left to do is fish and repair things and chat with my partner in the game?! Do more things become available or another shop open or anything??? I'm getting bored in the game and am trying to decide whether I should start a new game or keep going with the one I'm playing now?! Help!!!
  • Here's an interesting one. I've asked Bernie numerous times for a raise. He will not give me one. So, I divorced him and that loser slapped me! WTH!!!

  • @Brian: I just got a new iPhone and have Been playing sims3 on it for about 5 days and so far no problems have occured.
  • Hey, I've done ALL the romantic things like hundreds of times with Johnny but I still can't woohoo or start a relationship with him - why?
  • That's really weird, I got married to Johnny in 5 minutes, maybe it's because the personalities don't match or something. It's really for me 2 friends or start a relationship since I picked 'nice girl"
  • @ graceeee you either have to be aquantences or be friends with them then you can start a relationship. If your best friends or good friends you have to be rude till you get to friend.
  • graceeee; make ure ur not best friends, just friends

    i bought the recipe for steak & veggies but when i go to the quickmar there is no veggies !!!! i am going crazyyyyyyyyyyy can some one help? thanks!
    answer: ok there is veggies at the quickmart you have to scrolll down the food options at the store and then once you find what your looking for press the plus sign and then buy. if the veggies are not showing up in the store then i would call apple or delete the app and then put it back on (warning deleting the app will also delete any saved progress) if you have any questions about the app you can contact me @ cpmaster9198@hotmail.com

  • Please answer my question :
    If i open sims 3 it starts but when you see EA logo the game quits and you're back on the menu.
    thankssz
  • @FREAK!: perhaps you need to reinstall the game. Try deleting it, then downloading it again from the App Store.
    A question: what happens if I complete a wish before wishing it? For example, I became an enemy of Nina, and then I got a wish that said "Make an enemy". How do I show that I've already done it? I don't want to make another enemy. Also, is it possible that I can somehow get a wish back after it's expired? What if I miss some wishes and I've created all the accounts it can hold?
  • Sorry, another question: is it possible to get worse than a "nemesis" with another Sim? Are there any actions I could do with a nemesis?
  • @FREAK!: the pawn shop sells cars.
  • Yet another question: how do I meet a new Sim if I've met all the Sims in town?
  • but if the pawnshop sells cars there are 2 car dealers?!
  • and.... can i get children?
  • @FREAK!: you can also get a job at the pawn shop as a criminal for 600$ per night. As for the car dealer... I suppose that's for those who want a car but have not yet completed all wishes/goals.
    As far as I know, you can't get children on the iphone version... I've been trying to myself.
  • how to get better couch?
    I still confused about this one.
    anyone can help me?
  • @wiide: you go to build mode and purchase a new couch ( a couch that's more expensive than the one you currently have.) If you have a retro sofa buy a comfy couch. If you have a comfy couch get the more expensive couches. And so on.
  • Hi I just got the sims 3 on my iPhone but I'm not that impressed by it fir starters u can't have kids and u can't even build ur own home u can only upgrade to be honest that's really poor and u should think about letting people who like the sims games to be able to these things on their iPhones and iPod touches. Do u think that this may happen in the future? Please email me with a response thank you.
    Kind regards
    Jodi
  • We review the most updated version of this iPhone/iPod best seller. We review it honestly, intelligently and tell you one way or the other if it makes sense to buy.

    and is it possible to complete sims 3??
    cheers :)

  • When you make a sim a nemisis, is there anyway to make them your friend again? I have been trying and trying and it still remains nemisis and won't switch even to enemy
  • Where can I find the catfish on Sims 3 mobile? I need to catch it not buy it I have never been able to catch one although I finished my fishing highest acheivements.
  • Hi. Can anyone tell me what should i do to find these three traits of sims: "neat, neurotic and slob" ?
  • Hiw do you get some one to leave their partner?
  • You can marry them, and take them to your own house. For example, marry Maggie, invite her to live in your house, and that'll leave Jake alone in their house.
  • I have one question. How can I get Bernie to give me a raise? He is my partner. He seems to like to Woo-Hoo A LOT. And I have spent hours upon hours making nice conversation and using all my options and he refuses to give me a raise. When I ask, a red minus appears. I have asked a lot. Do I have to marry him? I have not tried that. Has anyone achieved this? Let me know. THANKS! ^_^
  • My goal is to discover a new recipe but I bought every single one from bistro and cooked each one and that goal is still incomplete, is there any recipes o don't know of??? .. And do we have to follow all goals in order or can I do something that's off my goal list that I know will be a goal eventually goal? I already became disliked by evryone intown but that wasent a goal yet but I just figured it would help but I dnt think it did anything... Lol
  • Hi, I only need a few more goals completed and one that's bothering me:
    "Be disliked by all sims in town"
    I've already made every single sim in town "dislike" me (as in our status is always "disliked") and yet the goal hasn't been checked off?
    Do I have to make them into "enemy" status instead? I want to finish this goal :(
    Also:
    "Accumulate $1,000"
    I got this goal 1 month ago..and at that time..I didn't lock it in..is there any way I can get that goal back?
  • How do I know what ingredients are needed for a recipe? I know basic ones like ham & eggs but not ministrone.
  • @Alex: to know what ingredients you need for a recipe, you can buy them at the Corsican Bistro by the beach. The recipe provides the necessary ingredients to cook a meal. Go to the Quickmart to buy what you need for the recipe.
  • @RetroLuvr: ROTFLMAO..."Bernie likes to WooHoo alot!" Nice. He is my boss, too. When I ask for raises I always get the red minus, but it says "you need more days in the office 7/20" or something like that. So you know how close you are. My raises and promotions are always automatic and time-based. I'm a CEO at $300 now. Bernie is my best friend, tho, not my partner/spouse. I don't know whether that impacts the situation. If it does, I'd dump the guy and go back to being friends.
    Back to the job, I also just had to answer the "stealing co-worker" questions right. Seems to me the "right" answer changes each time - so if you get fired for turning someone in the first time, the next time turn them in b/c that will get you a promotion. Then the next time don't turn them in b/c you'll get fired again. Just my observation from my experience. No idea whether that's typical or just randomly happened to me.
  • Here's answers I've found that I didn't see addressed:
    *I can buy a car at the car dealer very early on.
    *the saved game screen scrolls left and right so you can have up to 7 saved games at once.
    *edit your character only while at home.
  • Oh, and...
    Start with romance options only if you want that relationship, otherwise you have to ruin the sims friendship and start over
  • I downloaded Sims 3 yesterday and it runs very smoothly. Never crashes. Gameplay is not too bad, really good for when you're exceptionally bored.
    I just have a question: is it possible to marry/date a sim that's already married? I'm best friends with Jake and no matter how many times I'm making my sim do stuff under the romantic tab, it won't go past best friends. I saw a few comments that people have married Jake, but how do you do that?!
  • You marry jake by doing romantic things... it won't show up until you've reached a certain level... such as a budding romance... if it onyl shows friends... try going to the bottom right corner where theres a two people button while you're talking to jake and press it... and it should show all your relationship status with jake. =)
  • @ Kara123: thanks! yeah, i realised that you need to be just 'friends' and then make a romance from there for it to work. if you jump straight from friends -> good friends, you can only be best friends with that person.
    :)
  • So... I have about 5 Sims, and with two of them, I've used the toilet everywhere, and the shower everywhere (and my own place), and the wish won't check off. I even created a character to do this specifically!! I have tried with the first character multiple times, assuming some didn't save?? Any ideas?
  • @GrammaSimmy
    To complete that wish, do it with a maniac sim.
  • @Quynh
    Try to be friends with a sim then be disliked again.
    And for Accumulate $1000, you have to play until it comes again. Make a new sim and wait with money under $1000.
  • @Heather
    -You can't do that wish with your current sim anymore. Create a new sim and wait for the recipe wish to appear. Then buy a recipe and it's done.
    -You don't have to do the wishes in order.
    -You can't do the wishes before they appear. It doesn't count.
  • @Rose
    Wait for the catfish. It's very hard to catch one because of your skills. But it will come eventually.
  • @Shaz
    No, you don't have to. But if you do all the wishes, the game will be completed. And there is a surprise at the end :)
  • Back to my question, Doesn't anybody know how to unlock the traits "slob, neat and neurotic" ? :(
  • Nevermind. Didn't realize each character has a set of persona goals, too...
  • Pretty good game, except for one thing. YOU CAN NOT BUILD YOUR OWN HOUSE. That dissapoints me.
  • The only goal I have left is to achieve the highest repairing skill level...how do I do it? Brady asked earlier but there was no answer. I keep trying to use things so they'll break but none of them are breaking! Help pleasee!!!
  • i found out that magggie has a trait called 'green thumb' and walter 'angler' which apparently means he likes fishing. it also said on another site that there were traits like 'tinkerer' and ' bookworm', but when it gives u the options 4 ur traits, it doesnt include of those. does any 1 no how i can get those?
  • @Brit
    Just use the electronic stuff and they will brake eventually. It's a very hard goal, you gain a skill point when you do 5-6 fixing. So you have to play a lot.
  • @donna
    There are no traits like "tinkerer" or "bookworm". Here are all the traits:
    RUTH : shy, friendly, active, natural cook, neat
    JACK: friendly, active, neat, easily impressed
    JILL: conversationlist, good sense of humor, easily impressed, friendly, absent-minded
    BERNIE: no sense of humor, mean-spirited, couch potato, neat
    MAGGIE: green-thumb, friendly, active
    JAKE: good sense of humor, couch potato, slob
    MARCELL: natural cook, easily bored, vain, active, genius
    THERESA: shy, friendly, genius, neurotic
    WALTER: no sense of humor, conversationlist, neurotic
    NINA: conversationalist, active, good sense of humor, easily impressed
    LUKE: shy, good sense of humor, natural cook, active
    JOHNNY: friendly, good sense of humor, genius, slob
    ANYA: conversationalist, angler, easily bored, active, mean-spirited
    I found out all the traits except for "slob, neat and neurotic". Nobody seems to know how to find them out :(
  • make sure your sims smelly en do tender embrace 3 times u will found that
  • This traits are for the version of the game that i have but all kinds of traits in the mobile game are these.
  • traitor- but when u first make a sim, it doesn't give you the option 2 be a green-thumb, or a natural cook. is there a way u can be 1? ( btw, jake is also a genius and walter is an angler)
  • u can find out neurotic by using their shower or toilet, or eating out of their fridge
  • My sim wants to catch a trout and when ever I go to the lake I always catch cat fish never what I'm looking for I try to go to diffrant spots and I thought maybe I can just bye on and it will pass over is there any other way and not keep tryin lol thx xoxoxoxoxox

  • I cannot be romantically involved with 3 sims.how do I !!!!
  • does the sims 3 need internet to acess it on your ipod touch/iphone ?
  • How do I go to the Market ??
  • I'm getting really frustrated. Have achieved all persona goals, have a car which I bought from the car lot, and have completed all goals that I've come across but I've only unlocked 72 out of 73 and the pawn shop is still closed. I looked at the list pooh gave and only counted 72 there all of which I've unlocked and completed. Help!
  • Pooh I apologise there were 73 listed but my sims still says that only 72 are uncovered though 73 have been and have been completed. There is one at the very end after the three highest level things that still has a question mark is this the pawn shop one? Do you have to find out all the others sims traits?
  • How do you unlock the goal "Get a job" ??
    Please help, this is driving me nutsss!!!
  • You don't have do unlock the get a job goal to get a job just go to the supermarket. Ur welcome!
  • cant you have kids?
  • Slob / Neat trait - Make sure that your sim is smelly then try to give the other sim a tender embrace, after a couple of hugs, you can find out if they are neat or a slob.
  • Couch potato trait - invite the aim over your house using the phone. When they arrive at the door, call them over. It's really funny cause they procrastinate, but others without the trait come to you with no problem.

  • How do I "discover" the goal Accumulate $1,000. It's the only one I have left to complete. It's not a persona goal so I have to wait for it to come up. I'm guessing it would help to play under the Power Seeker persona, but so far I've had no luck. Please help.
  • Anybody have a list all 52 goals for Sims 3: World Adventures? If you do, could you please sort it (e.g. in excel-alphabetical first word) before posting it please...
    And hey if not- does anybody want to take a stab at explaining why the two goals I'm missing won't appear even after playing the mobile game for a very long (and very sad) amount of time? thanks for helping!! MC
  • How do I complete the "Discover a New Recipe" and the "Make a Sim Jealous of You" goals? PLEASE HELP! THESE ARE THE LAST TWO GOALS I HAVE TO COMPLETE!!!
  • Someone help me punleazee <3 can u get pregnant on there??? thnx babes
  • Xxxxx-
    make a sim jealous of u- go over to Jake & maggies house when both r home and hit on either one. So choose "flirt" or "pick up line" a couple times and goal will be complete. U can do it at any of the couples homes: Theresa & Marcell, Jack & Jill or Jake & Maggie (they're just located the closest).
    Discover a new recipe- easy. Just buy a recipe at the restaurant. Lol I can't remember the name (coranne bistro or sthg..whatever) but it's across the street from Marcell & Theresa's house. And if u already bought all the recipes just sell one of them back to the restaurant and buy it right back.
    Baybay-
    no kids sweetie, it's a mobile game. If u want kids so badly go and buy the pc version or get out there and start socializing with real people.
    If u have more questions (and some down time), scroll through ALL the comments above. Whatever question u may have has likely been answered by a nice commentator.
    Oh and disregard my post seeking help for world adventures. Solved it and happy to offer assistance if needed.

  • I cannot catch any catfish anymore!! What can i do?
  • how do i sell fish? ;S
  • You go to the market, select the type of fish that you "fished" and press the subtract button... Then check. It is the same as if you were returning something that you bought.

  • Ok I'm having troubles I have bought seeds for everything and fertilizer and i can't find out how to grow plants like tamatoes and corn. What do I do please help thanks mitchell
  • You will have to upgrade your house and in the backyard you will have sticks. You will first need fertilizer, a watering can, and seeds then you go plant then it will show you seeds. Press on it. The you go tend and keep on doing. Don't uproot unless you have collected the tomatoes or something like that.
  • you dont have a garden untill you have a certain house upgrade, the house with the garden has 5 rooms, and with every house upgrade you get another room, so you can work out how many upgrades you need untill you have the garden.
  • You have to upgrade your house. Once you do, you'll have a garden and then you grow them there
  • Im partners with Johnny & I have NO IDEA how to marry,whoo hoo with him, or ask him to move in..I've done everything under the romantic tab & options never come up for those thongs. Help! Does the traits have to be compatible?
  • Hey Clyn. After a little romancing, when you select the 'romantic' button you can slide the choices up or down. That's where you'll find things like making whoo hoo or proposing marriage.
  • I'm having the same problem, I tried flirting non stop & figured out to scroll down but nothing new never shows up, not even the option to kiss nevermind woohoo or marriage.
  • Scroll down your options when you speak with him, it took me forever to figure it out!!
  • if you go to the be romantic bit when your talking to him, you can acually scroll down, theres more! i didnt figure this out for months haha :D hope i helped
  • I have the exact same problem, and I can't scroll :P
  • Thanks m mmmm
