    I've noticed that my "Recent Calls", (both incoming and outgoing), are lumped together by Contact. Ie... my parents called and I missed it, so I called back and missed them... I tried several more times and missed them. Then, when I looked at my recent calls list, and it shows multiple calls under the contact name for my parents.

    When select it to view, it shows the call times, and it say's "Outoing Calls" at the top. However, the first call time listed was really an incoming call. There is nothing there that indicates that. It also doesn't show which of my parent's phone numbers called... cell, house, office... just the list of call times associated with their contact file.

    I would like to be able to see what calls were incoming, apart from the outgoing calls that I made back to that same contact. I would also prefer to be able to tell which of their numbers called me.

    Does anyone know if there's a setting I"m missing that will separate thesem, or provide more indepth detail? Am I doing something wrong? It can't be much of an issue becaue I've googled it and not found anyone else complaining about it.

    P.S. - I've attached a screenshot. Note that the 7:51 AM call was incoming, and all of the others were outgoing. I tried calling both of their numbers, but it doesn't indicate which number called me or which numbers I called. Also, the top of the screen simply says, "Outgoing Calls". ***** Is there some setting I can change to list all of my recent calls individually?

    I think in your case it won't matter BUT.
    Out going calls made to a contact listed on the recent call screen are blue missed incoming calls are red

    I'd rather them all be clumped together with the # of calls next to the contact name and when i select that the next screen lists the time and as noted above the #s are color coded.

    if you klick on the little blue button on the right side of the number you can view the contact and the number that you missed will be blue
    i just deleted my call history so i can´t check if it works the same with the calls that you made but i´m afraid besides that the list doesn´t give a lot of information ...

    What I want to know is when they get separated. I might have 3 calls to somebody grouped, and then the next one starts a new list. I like it this way, I just wish I knew how many minutes between calls were needed to get a new list item.
