It sounds like you have a version detection failure, causing the townie check to be skipped. What stuff/expansions did you install? I recall that if you install certain stuffpacks and fail to install certain expansions, things can go wrong, but I forget the exact combination which produces this behavior offhand.

I'm using the Ultimate Collection, so I don't think it has anything to do with missing an EP or SP.

Well, it's VERY unusal that you cannot call a service NPC, since the service NPC "has phone" check is unconditional and does not depend on game edition checks, as service NPCs and their associated constant fambly ID existed in all editions of the game, and is the first check performed. Are you sure you're installed correctly, and that you're actually calling a service NPC, and not perhaps an evil data corruption clone?

I'm calling the maid for some hankey pankey, not using the "service" category on the phone. Sorry if I was unclear on that part. Basically I want to call them over for a visit, not in order for them to clean my house. I first realized this with the maid, and the problem seems to go away when I remove this mod. It also happens when this is the only mod I have installed.

I've also tried calling townies, gardening members, social group members, etc, and they never have a phone.

I understood that, yes. Not sure what is causing this, though. Force an error on a random object and attach the log so I can see the game dump values. It's odd that you are the first to report this, ever.
