How to View Verizon Wireless Call History

By Andrew Smith

By examining the call history, you can see if you went over your minutes or called any numbers outside Verizon's Mobile to Mobile service. Verizon Wireless call history can be checked both on a Verizon cell phone as well as on Verizon's online billing website.
