Your cell phone keeps track of every call you make and receive through it, including a caller's phone number and the date and time a call took place. If you answered the call, it records how long you talked. If you do not want this type of information about your habits to remain on your phone, you can delete records of individual cell phone calls received, dialled or missed, or delete the entire call log at once.
