Hi I would like to organize my recent call list by number instead of the default sorting by date. Or I would like to see the list of previous calls & messages with a phone number. Currently I am just going back in history to see if I received a call from someone in the past couple days. It will be great if order by phone number/contact option is available

I am using Iphone 5, iOS 8.4.0

Android phones are able to do this. It is quite useful

  • That does not currently appear to be an option in iOS.

Generally speaking, please include hardware and software information, e.g. iPhone 4s, iOS 7.1.2, when asking questions as not all features are available in all models and iOS versions.

That said, I do not believe you have a choice, at least I don't on my iPhone in the Phone app, however I have an app on my MacBook Pro (also available for Windows) called iMazing that I can sort my call history by All and Contact and by Date, Contact, Duration and Number. I can also export to Text or CSV files.

There may be a third-party iOS App that can do what you want right on the iPhone. callLog may be a possibility.

  • It should be mandatory to include hardware/OS/software details. I'm sure there's a meta question for that, of course... Aug 24, 2015 at 14:26
  • Nice answers here: meta.apple.stackexchange.com/questions/1141/…. Maybe it is not such a good idea after all. It's just tiresome to ask for details on almost half of the questions. Aug 24, 2015 at 17:37
  • I need an app on the phone, not on the desktop

  • @adam, Did you miss where I said "There may be a third-party iOS App that can do what you want right on the iPhone. callLog may be a possibility." which included a hyperlink to callLog? Aug 25, 2015 at 10:40
