Deleting phone calls on Android is a simple process that can help you declutter your call history and keep it organized. Whether you want to delete individual calls or clear your entire call log, Android provides easy-to-use options for managing your phone calls. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to delete phone calls on Android.

Deleting Individual Phone Calls

If you only want to remove specific calls from your call log, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Phone app on your Android device.
  2. Navigate to the “Call Log” or “Recent Calls” tab.
  3. Scroll through the list of calls and find the one you want to delete.
  4. Long-press on the desired call to select it. The selected call will be highlighted or marked with a checkmark.
  5. In the top-right corner of the screen, you will see a menu icon (usually represented by three dots).

    Tap on it.

  6. A dropdown menu will appear. Select the “Delete” or “Remove” option from the menu.
  7. You may be asked to confirm the deletion. Tap “OK” or “Delete” to confirm and remove the selected call from your call log.


If you have an older version of Android or a customized user interface (UI) on your device, please note that these steps may vary slightly. However, most Android devices have similar options for deleting individual phone calls from the call log. Refer to your device’s user manual or online documentation for specific instructions if needed.

Clearing Entire Call Log

If you prefer to remove all calls from your call log at once, instead of deleting them one by one, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Phone app on your Android device. Tap on it.

    Look for an option like “Clear call log“, “Clear history“, or “Delete all“. Tap on this option. Tap “OK” or “Delete” to confirm and clear your entire call log.

Keep in mind that once you clear your call log, it cannot be undone. Make sure to review your call history before performing this action. Additionally, clearing your call log does not delete any records from your phone bill or provider’s records; it only removes them from your device.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully learned how to delete phone calls on Android.

Whether you choose to remove specific calls or clear your entire call log, managing your call history is now a breeze. Enjoy a cleaner and more organized phone experience!
