Download and Print Android Call History

Your Android phone contains information on all calls made, received and missed, as well as information like call duration and contact. The problem is, Android phones are limited to storing a maximum of 500 call logs. Once you start creating more call logs (when you make, receive or miss calls), your device will start deleting the oldest call logs you have on your phone. If you need to keep a record of your call logs, we recommend saving your call history to your computer or printing it off at regular intervals so that this information isn't lost when it gets overwritten on your phone.

This guide shows you how to copy your call history to your computer for safekeeping, or even print off a contact's call log for your information, or even for example for court purposes.

What is a Call Log?

A call log is a record of any telephone calls made, received or missed to or from a phone. The log contains information such as date, duration and contact (name or number).

How to access Call Logs

To access your call history (i.e. a list of all of your call logs on your device), simply open your calls app. This app icon will look like a telephone. When the app opens, you'll see a list of all incoming and outgoing calls.

How to Print the history of your Android Phone Call Logs

How to Export your Android Phone Call History to your Computer

Droid Transfer also allows you to save the call history to your computer. To do this, select the contacts whose call logs you want to save (you can ctrl-click contacts to select multiple), then click either "Copy Call Logs", "Save CSV" or "Save PDF".

  • "Copy Call Logs" - Copies the call log as HTML. You can view this file in internet browsers such as Google Chrome.
  • "Save PDF" - Saves the call log in Portable Document Format (PDF).
  • "Save CSV" - Exports the call history in CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format. Logs saves as CSV can be opened in spreadsheet management apps like Microsoft Excel!

All that is left to do then is to tell Droid Transfer where to save the files to, and confirm!
