In Gaston, you will not actually have a Probable Cause hearing. The DA's will ususally just continue the case and then send it to the Grand Jury if they think there is enough evidence to support a felony charge.
If you have been indicted by the grand jury, then you will not have a probable cause hearing as the grand jury found probable cause. This is probably why your lawyer is not responding to your request for a probable cause hearing. The issue became moot once the grand jury indicted you.
If you have been indicted by the grand jury, then your lawyer can request a bond hearing in superior court.
