  1. 1

    Locate your phone bill. Any past calls and minute usage charges will be on your bill if you have a detailed phone bill. Phone calls of any duration are logged on your phone bill, both incoming and outgoing. If you don't have a detailed phone bill, you may be able to access this information online.

  2. 2

    Log on to your account online. If you don't already have a registered online account, then create one. You will be able to view your billing information. Click on the link that says "Past Bills" or something similar depending on your carrier's website. You should be able to view your past bills in a PDF file from the date you opened your account. This works great if you don't have a paper bill or detailed paper billing.

  3. 3

    Look in your call history if you just want to see your most recent calls made. By pressing the "Call" button, most phones automatically go into their call history displaying your last calls made and the most recent incoming calls. You can also filter them by choosing to view incoming or outgoing calls.

  4. 4

    Use Reverse Phone Look-up if you are trying to find who a number belongs to. This search will help you find which person or business a phone number is registered under. You can use this for free using the Whitepages.
