By Emily Watson, Tuesday, December 17, 2019

Sometimes you need to restore call history from a cell phone after the information has been cleared from the phone memory. Luckily, you can recover deleted call history from Android phones. This post will show you how to get deleted call history from Android cell phone or recover deleted numbers from the call log.

Can I Recover Deleted Call History?

Call history, including the logs of the incoming/outcoming calls, missed calls, is saved your phone memory. Even after you have deleted call history from Phone > Recent > Call history > Clear call history, the call logs are not completely erased from the memory space.

There is an Android call history recovery tool that can detect the remaining of the deleted call history and recover the deleted calls for you. This is  FonePaw Android Data Recovery, which can recover deleted calls, contacts and messages from Android phones.

In Part 2, I'll walk you through the process of recover deleted calls from Android.
