What do you do when you suddenly find that your call history has been wiped clean? This can be a real problem for you especially if there were some numbers on that list you had yet to commit to the memory of your device. A deleted call history whether accidentally or otherwise would mean that you have lost that unsaved number for good.
If this sounds like your current predicament, keep reading this article to find out how you can easily recover the call history and consequently the number you hadn’t saved.
What to Do first
We know you are anxious to recover the call history so you can get back to your life and we promise we are getting to that. But first, check your iTunes and iCloud backup files.
