long press individual entries and there should be an option list. Or press menu and you can delete the entire list.

Oh, that Call Log !! I found two of them. One you can clear, the other you can't.

On the same topic, does anyone know how I can delete multiple call log histories of the same person without having to delete the text threads at the same time as the phone call incoming/outgoing logs? I may only want to delete the complete history of one person and not the whole call log of everyone calling me!

On my old HTC MyTouch 4G, I could press and hold one of the many calls related to a person and it would give me the option of deleting ALL calls for that person. It was quick and easy, unlike the Galaxy III which is not only cumbersome but also not flexible!

I make and receive many calls to and from the same person and I want to be able to go into the call log and delete all calls relating to that person but, WITHOUT deleting their texts too! I have an SMS back-up app but I really don't want to have to go into my email account to look at an SMS thread I needed to have access to on my phone!

It seems that the only other way I can delete call logs without deleting texts is to go through each call from the same person and delete them one by one - TEDIOUS! OK, I understand that I can Select All and then un-check the ones I don;t want to delete but seriously, that could be a text thread of over a hundred messages and that is WAY too time consuming.

If anyone has a solution, including a different app suggestion, please let me know asap.

Thank you :-)

You can delete the Call logs by
1. simply go to call logs
2. press the option key which is on left bottom of the device.
3. Select the delete option
4. The select all option will be available at the top
5. select Select all, now every call log in the call logs window is marked
6. You can select the delete button Icon on the top
7. Press Yes/allow to remove whole call logs from the call logs list.

In my last test, the simple deletion will not completely delete the call history and other data from your phone, it still remain on your phone and can be easily recovered by some recovery app. You need a certified data erase software that will leave the data impossible to retrieve. I have been using a software program called Safewiper ( that has worked out great. Any program like that will do a much better job at protecting your personal data and identity on your phone.

If you want to delete some of the call log, you can go to the call logs, tap and hold an individual call log. It should have the selective option to delete. Or go to the call logs, tap "MORE" of the top right and choose "Edit". It is also can delete the call log.
If you want to clear all of the call log and make them unrecoverable, you can use Mobile Privacy Eraser to delete them.
