There are various reasons why you may need a record of your incoming mobile phone calls. Maybe you forgot to write down an important phone number, or you may have someone calling and harassing you, so you need proof for the authorities. No matter what the reason is, the detailed billing option that is offered by mobile phone providers will give you the information you need.

Contact your mobile phone provider and inform the representative that you would like to add the detailed billing feature to your account. There may be a small fee for this service.

Review the list of incoming calls when your paper statement arrives in the mail. You will see the phone number of the caller, as well as the time, date and duration of the call. More than likely, the calls won't be separated in "Outgoing," "Incoming" and "Missed" categories. You will have to look at the "From" column for numbers that are different than your cell phone number--those are your incoming calls.

Log in to your mobile phone account online if you don't have time to wait for the paper statement. Most providers give you the option of viewing detailed billing online, providing a list of incoming, missed and outgoing calls, along with the date, time and duration of the call. Many times, the records are updated instantly, giving you up-to-the-minute information. You can choose to print these records if you need a hard copy.
