Sometimes you talk so long it's hard to know where the time went. The Recent Calls feature on the iPhone lets you go back and review your call history. You can see all incoming and outgoing calls, as well as several details, such as how long the call lasted and contact information for the person you were talking to. You can also see exactly what time the call began and ended.

Step 1

Tap the "Phone" icon at the bottom of your Home screen to open the Phone application.

Step 2

Tap "Recents" at the bottom of the screen.

Step 3

Tap "All" or "Missed' at the top of the screen to see all the calls or just those that were not answered.

Step 4

Tap the icon to the right of the conversation to access additional information about the call.

Step 5

Scroll down through the screen to see what day and time the call was placed and what time it ended, as well as how long the call lasted. You can also see any contact information stored in the phone about the individual on the call.
