    Default Recent Call Hell.... Please help

    I have a iP4 with 5.0.1.

    I receive many calls a day, and for some reason the recent call list is only approx 30 recent calls.

    I had a blackberry prior, it had almost infinite recent call list.

    I cannot believe that the iPhone has such a recent call list, its so annoying that I would be willing to jailbreak just to get a larger recent call list.

    Is there such a thing or a fix for this issue,

    Mine has many more calls but a different issue—my Recents page always opens at the bottom of the list (oldest calls) instead of the top (most recent).

    Try shutting down the phone and restarting it. If that doesn't work you may have to do a fresh restore of the phone.

    I stand corrected.

    I have 88 recent call in my history.

    I've restored and restarted. It's always been like this.

    Blackberries have over 1000 recent calls.

    Can anyone verify that they have 88 recent calls.

    Thanks.

    There needs to be a fix for this.

    It's not broken, hence no fix. Sorry, that's just the way it is. If there is a jailbreak for it, that is your only option.

    lol i have 101 as well.... when your counting make sure you count the numbers in parentheses next to them as they all count as a recent call.

    Well too bad. Return it if it bothers you that much. I am sure somewhere Apple is going....we have to submit to cpc12.

    If you don't like it, return it. It's that simple. My question is why didn't you research this beforehand?

    well to bad... what are you a *****.

    What kind of response is that , return it... how about make it better, what a crappy attitude.

    you must be loser who gets 5 calls a week so you would not find this an issue, go back to whatever it is you do and stay there...

    if a old blackberry can store 1000 recent calls why can't a up to date iPhone do the same, seems so simple to me.

    return it... why don't I shove it up your ...... ss

    I see your from Houston.....is see its all clear now. I should have expected such a stupid response from a texan....

    ELI is gonna spank Tony Homo...

    Lol..because your response wasn't terrible? Talk about stereotyping people from the East Coast. BTW, I work in IT and get plenty of calls a week. I delete my call log daily because I don't care to keep numbers of people I work with. Clearly you're highly educated with your outstanding grammar, perfect sentence structure and the like. And then you have to go and talk about a football game, thinking insulting a player is going to hurt me? I laugh at you, and will plenty others on here.

    Kisses sugar.

    I'm not even sure why you need to have all your recent calls listed? Like ghostface, I delete mine whenever I get the chance--I hate having a huge list. Are you really needing to look that far back?

    I'm curious, that's all. But as ghostface mentioned you should have looked into this before getting an iPhone...seems like an easy thing to find out beforehand. That's what these forums are for.

    Recent calls help me place dates with people or places. I refer back to the recent call list to find a customers number or to determine when I dealt with a person, I don't store every number I call, I have many customers and it was always easier with a blackberry, i could look a month back and see who I spoke with etc...

    It just seems like a simple thing and with all the advancements this phone has you would think it would have a infinite recent call history, I mean how memory intensive could it be, I have 32 GB and I can't even see who I spoke with a week ago, seems primitive.

    I find it interesting that Im the only one who finds this an issue, I rely heavily on my phone in my industry, Im a contractor and have many customers.

    Why would you delete your call logs ??? hiding something ??

    I bet Droid phones have a much longer list as well, I would not know..

    Why not just add these contacts to your phone book if they are that important? How can you even tell all the numbers apart???

    I totally agree with cpc12 about the call log. People who use this feature they only know how important it is, those who are not into call log for them it's not at all important. But iPhone being one of the best smart phone in world it should include some of this features (longer duration call log in terms of many days) like many other smart phone gives. I use call log some times & it's very useful. Previously I was using BB & now iPhone so I know when this call log is not available (one week or 10 days back log).

    I even came across same name identification in contacts. If you have same or similar name in contact, for example 2 similar name like "John Smith" where both the people are from different company you can not know which "John Smith" is calling you or when you want to call this person, you have to get into the contact & see which "John Smith" is from which company & whom you wish to contact, just because in contacts iPhone is not showing company name next to first & last name.

    These are basic features one will expect in a smart phone but are missing in iPhone. If these features are not incorporated in iPhone does not mean I can return back & use BB, that any one can do it. Then why do we have to call iPhone as one of the best invented smart phone in world? People shift from other smart phones to iP coz of better features & not for returning back the phone when those basic features are missing.

    Since when has Apple ever really cared about adding some basic features? You can't add attachments, no LED notifications, profiles....none of that stuff. They've never been about that stuff.

    So, unlink the unified contact contact cards. It won't solve your gripe totally, but it is what it is.
