How to Track Cell Phone Calls

By Kayla Lowe

Tracking cell phone calls lets you know with whom a person is communicating via a cell phone. Spouses suspecting infidelity and parents worried about their children's safety often want to track cell phone calls of the people concerned. Tracking cell phone calls is a simple process that only becomes complicated if you are caught or the information is erased or inaccessible to you.

Things You'll Need

  • Cell phone bill
  • Cell phone

Step 1

Obtain a copy of your bill, and examine the ingoing and outgoing calls for each cell phone number.

Step 2

Check the dialed calls on each cell phone by looking at "Recent Calls" and then "Dialed Calls" for the numbers called from the cell phone.

Step 3

Check the received calls on each cell phone by navigating to "Recent Calls" and then "Received Calls" for the numbers of those who have called the cell phone.

Tips & Warnings

  • To get more information about dialed or received cell phone numbers, try entering them into a search engine or look them up in a reverse phone look-up directory; also look at the minute count for each call to learn how long a call lasted.
  • If your name is not on the cell phone account, chances are you will not be able to obtain a copy of the cell phone bill. If the "Recent Calls" list is deleted, then you must rely upon the cell phone bill to track calls.
