How to Access a Cell Phone's Call History Online

By Jayme Lee

The four largest national cellular telephone companies in the United States are Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. Some cellular companies offer free detailed paper billing that allows users to review past incoming and outgoing calls. Data and text messaging use is generally also included with detailed billing. A few of the companies, such as Verizon Wireless, charge for detailed paper billing if a user requests it; however, detailed billing online is free. Whether you want to check your current call history or even several months prior, you can easily access your account through your provider's website and check your call history.
