We've all been there. You glance at your phone and see a missed call, but the number is unfamiliar. Maybe it was a potential job opportunity, a long-lost friend, or another robocall? Not knowing who it is can be agonizing. Perhaps you might be trying to view the AT&T call history of your spouse or child to confirm your suspicions.


Regardless of the motivation, this step-by-step guide will show you how to check your AT&T call log history on your phone.



Part 1. What records does the AT&T call log provide


AT&T provides call detail records (CDRs) in their call logs, which include information such as:


Date and time: When the call took place.


Number dialed or received: The phone number of the other party involved in the call (incoming or outgoing).


Call duration: The length of the call.


Call type: Whether the call was incoming, outgoing, missed, or voicemail. (This might vary depending on your specific plan)


(Optional) location: In some cases, with additional services or depending on your plan, call logs might include approximate location information for the call (cell tower data).


However, these records typically do not include the content of the calls or text messages.


Part 2. How long does AT&T retain call logs for any number


AT&T retains call logs for up to 7 years. However, accessing the AT&T call log depends on whether you're looking at them online or requesting older AT&T call history. This means that if you have an AT&T subscription, you can view your call logs for the past 16 months directly through your AT&T online account on the AT&T website.


However, accessing AT&T usage varies as AT&T prepaid customers only get 6 months of call history on their online account. While AT&T postpaid customers get 16 months of AT&T call history. Nonetheless, if you need to access AT&T call logs older than 16 months, you will need to contact AT&T customer service and request bill reprints that include detailed call logs. You should note that there's a $5 fee attached to each bill reprint.


Part 3. How to view your AT&T call log


Unfortunately, viewing your call history directly through the myAT&T app on your phone (Android or iPhone) is not currently supported. Right now, if you seek to view your call logs and other detailed information, you have to do that through the AT&T website externally from the app.


3.1. On Android


Perhaps you want to check your call logs on your Android phone, you will need to visit your web browser such as Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Ensure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Then,


Step 1. Type the AT&T website URL in the search bar and click the search icon.


Step 2. Once the website is done loading, sign into your account. Follow the instructions and input your details as requested. 


Step 3. Next navigate to the "My Wireless" section which will lead you to a new tab.


Step 4. Among the options in the new tab select "My Usage".


Step 5. Scroll down to "Usage by Number" and choose the phone number you want to view the call history for.


Step 6. In the new tab, click on "See Data, Text and Talk Logs". This will display your call history for the past 6 months or 16 months, depending on your subscription. The call log has details like date, time, call duration, and call type (missed, received, dialed).


3.2. On iPhone


To check your AT&T call log history on your iPhone, ensure you have a stable internet connection. Afterwards,


Step 1. Navigate to your web browser of your choice, Safari or Chrome.


Step 2. Input the AT&T website URL in the search bar and click the search icon.


Step 3. Sign into your account on the login page and follow the instructions to input your details as requested.


Step 4. Head next to the "My Wireless" section which will lead you to a new tab.


Step 5. Among the options in the new tab select "My Usage".


Step 6. Scroll down to "Usage by Number" and choose the phone number you want to view the call history for.


Step 7. In the new tab, click on "See Data, Text and Talk Logs". This will display your call history for the past 6 months or 16 months.
