Re: deleting the recent log

Thank u so much for trying to help. I guess my message wasnt clear enough though. The phone is not storing my "messages", I'm not having a problem with that, I can clear them, no problem. Its the "recent log" under the "add recipients" that does not clear. The "recent log" stores all the numbers you ever text messaged to. I want to clear the #'s that I've text messaged to, not regular calls, thats easy to clear. For some reason this phone stores all the #'s that you text to. If you can figure it out, i'll give u a million dollars!!! just joking of course.
thank u!

How to remove call from call logs?

Your cell phone keeps track of every call you make and receive through it, including a caller's phone number and the date and time a call took place. If you answered the call, it records how long you talked. If you do not want this type of information about your habits to remain on your phone, you can delete records of individual cell phone calls received, dialed or missed, or delete the entire call log at once.

Delete Call Log

1.From the home screen, click the "Menu" button on your phone to navigate to the main menu of your cell phone. This is where your call log application is located, among other features such as your address book and text messaging.

2.Click on the "Call Log" or "Recent Calls" icon. The name may vary slightly depending on your cell phone provider.

3.Select " All Calls" from the call log screen.

4.Scroll down and select "Delete All." This will delete all calls from your call log.

Hi trsampson,

To clear recent calls, here are the steps to follow:
1. Go to the 'Menu' option.
2. Scroll, till you get to call register.
3. Select it, then scroll to 'delete recent call list'.
4. After you have selected it, you would be provided with the options to delete,
i. 'All calls', selecting it would entirely wipe off your entire call log.
ii. 'Missed call', selecting it would delete your entire missed call on the call log.
iii. 'Received calls', selecting this deletes all your received calls.
iv. 'Dialled calls', selecting this deletes all your dialled calls on d log.

You could also perform selective deleting. You might want to delete a/some paticular number(s) that is on the log, not the entire log.
To effect this, after step 2 above, you can scroll to either of 'missed calls', 'received calls', or 'dialled calls'. Select the one which pertains to the number you want to delete, scroll through till you get to the particular number(s), select 'options', scroll till you get to 'delete', then select delete, and the number is deleted. Do it for as many numbers as you want to be deleted.

To clear messages,
1. Select the menu option, scroll till you get to 'messages'.
2. Select 'messages', scroll for either 'inbox' or 'sent messages'.
3. Select whichever you want to delete from, scroll to the particular message, and select 'options', sroll again, and select 'delete'.

Hope that helped?

I have a new samsung t749 impact cellphone. How do I delete recent recipients from the texting list without wiping out/rebooting the whole phone to factory settings? There is a garbage can button which...

try to open your call manager or call log menu. once open, you can see the list of people whom contacted you and whom you contacted, there's a call log list, press it and it will give you a drop down menu, which will filter the people, select sent messages and it will give you the list people whom you texted, from there you can delete them and they will be removed from your recent contacts.

Deleting text log from a711 samsung phone

Access menu>messages>(Now from this screen you should see your Inbox, Outbox, Drafts, Saved, Etc. Check to see if you are given 'Options').

This should allow you to delete all text messages in each category. If you are not given an 'Options' feature then access your Inbox and from your Inbox use your 'Options' feature to delete all clutter.

How do you delete the recent contact log off a samsung sgh a737 ?

To erase the recent recipients list, you must do a master reset of the phone. This will erase all texts, alarms, and any other personal settings you set on the phone, but it will erase your recent recipients. This is the ONLY reliable method I found

Can't delete the recent messages log on the LG CU920

Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option. Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button. Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3. I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila! MORE INFO: I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list. What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once. Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend. My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!

Need complete recent call log and more days for text message storage

The call listing only shows one caller by design, to help with clutter on the list. It's a little funky, but if you think about scrolling through pages of the same caller just to find that number to the pizza place again, it makes sense.

If you open Messaging, you can access the settings in the menu there to increase (or set to never delete) text message life.

Please let me know if you get stuck!
