There is no way to look at call logs or text messages that have been deleted from an Android device. Once this information is gone, there is no way to get it back. But there are third-party apps that can be used to back up call logs and text messages to the cloud or a computer. This way, you can still access them even if you delete them from the device. It’s important to remember that using these apps may not be legal in all places and that they can be used for bad things, so be careful when you use them.
How to look at the history of different Android activities:
On an Android device, you can check the history of different things in several ways:
- Use the built-in “History” app. This app keeps track of the websites you visit, the videos you watch, and the places you go to with Google Maps.
- Check out the app “Google Maps”: This app keeps track of the places you go and the paths you take to get there.
- Check out the “Chrome” app. This app keeps track of the sites and pages you visit.
- Check the Phone app’s “Call Log”: This will show you a list of all the calls you’ve made and received, along with the date and time of each one.
- Check the “Messages” app. This app will show you all the text messages you’ve sent and received, along with the date and time of each one.

- All of these apps can be found in your device’s app drawer.
