Call logs are important on your device, as they provide info on all instances of phone calls made to and from your phone. This data includes the contact's name (or number if they are not saved as a contact in your device), as well as time, date, duration and whether a call was made, missed, or unanswered.

It is worth noting that if you open your calls app on your phone, you may not see all of your call logs. This is because, depending on your device, your phone will only show a certain number of your call entries - most Android phones are limited to storing a maximum of 500 call logs. If you need to keep a record of your older call logs, we recommend using an app like Droid Transfer to backup a record of your call history to your computer at regular intervals so that this information isn't lost when it gets overwritten on your device.

Here's how backup your Android phone call history to your PC...
