We often take call history for granted because we think this is not that much important call feature, little do we consider its value too. But as part of precautionary measures, we always advise taking backups of everything on the iPhone because you don’t know when you will need those most. Our mobile devices are prone to data loss every time we use them. Data loss can be triggered both accidentally and intentionally depending on the given situation. If you are looking to recover deleted call records, then there is plenty of work-around that you can do.

  1. Paper Bill – If you are on a postpaid plan and receiving statements monthly then you can easily find all the incoming and outgoing call history of your mobile devices
  2. Online Account- Almost all cell phone providers have their own websites where their clients can create the account and log in. If you have an online account, then you can find all the call records once you log in.
  3. Contact Service Provider- You can also ask help from your service provider for all the call records you needed. In this way, they can better assist you in recovering such information.

Another great self-help is getting the call history faster from your backups. Since we all know that iPhone has iTunes and iCloud backups, then why not go ahead and explore this all by yourself? In this article, we will teach you ways to recover deleted call history from iTunes and other effective options to get them in no time.
