In Grand Theft Auto IV, cheats are activated by typing the cheat phone number into Niko's mobile phone. After this has been done once, the cheat will be stored in the phone, and accessible from the "Cheats" menu there.

Be warned that entering some of these cheats in the game will disable certain achievements/trophies, so do so at your own risk. Accessing secrets is different from cheats, and will not affect the status of gameplay. There is no way to unblock the achievements except for re-loading the game without saving after the cheat has been activated. However if a player uses any of these cheats but still desires all the achievements, they can simply start a new game file and complete the first mission. Then there are no blocks on the achievements. Cheats can also have unwanted effects, such as glitches, on gameplay, because of the way that they work.

If the player spawns cars, they can make as much money as they want. The cars are worth about 1/3rd of what they were in his missions but it can be done over and over and over again.

The FIB Buffalo is the only unsellable spawn car. The Annihilator cannot fit in Stevie's garage and it is unlikely the Jetmax will either but it has not been proven.

Most cars have a low sell value, driving gently into a wall enough to scrape the paint will dramatically improve the value of certain cars, when the SuperGT is spawned and sold, Niko will get $8,000, driving it slightly into the corner of the garage enough to ding it and then selling it will sell for the full retail value the $10,500. Some have reported the value further increasing to $10,800.
