Cell phones make it convenient to keep in touch with friends, family, and coworkers on the go. They also keep a handy record of all your calls. Occasionally, you may want to clean these records out, though, for whatever reason. Luckily, it's easy to delete call history on a phone; the following tips apply to phones using AT&T as their carrier.
From the Standby screen (the one that has your screen saver or theme), press your phone's menu key. The location of this key varies by model, but it is often the middle button on your phone.
When the menu is displayed, highlight "Recent Calls" to select it. Press the "Enter" or "Action" button. This button is often the same as the menu button. This will open a display of your recent calls.
Select "Options." At the bottom of the list of recent calls, you'll see "Options", "Open", and "Back". Depending on the model of your phone, these commands may be in a different order. Press the button underneath "Options".
Select "Delete All" from the pop-up menu that displays. On most phones, a warning box will display. Select "Yes" to delete the recent call history.
