Cell phones keep a history of calls in two key places...in the phone and at the phone company. In your phone, access the main menu, and look for a feature like Call Records, or something similar. In your online phone account, pull up a full copy of your bill (not just a bill summary) and you'll usually find all phone calls listed. Some mobile phone service providers even let you download a record of incoming, outgoing and missed calls.
