    Steps to Delete BlackBerry Call History


    This article discusses how to remove previous calls on a BlackBerry via the messages folder and the call log list. Deleting BlackBerry call history is not a straightforward process. BlackBerry settings and adjustments are well hidden and embedded in the system software, the location and format take a bit of getting used to.

    How easy it can be will depend on where you store your phone logs. Before learning how to delete the call logs, it is worth bearing in mind that the BlackBerry has two locations for phone logs, the messages application or the phone application.

    While the messages application will allow you to delete all calls, the phone log works less efficiently only allowing you to delete each call log individually.
