How to Find Out Who Called Your Cell Phone

By Lena Freund

No matter which cell phone you own, the procedure for looking up a missed call is the same.

Not all cell phones possess the same capabilities. Smart phones, for example, can do much more than basic cell phones that are used only for calling and texting. Even if your cell phone does not connect to the Internet or allow you to send email, it will possess a directory of dialed, received and missed calls. The missed calls function allows you to check who called your phone after you miss a call.

Find the function that says "Menu" on your cell phone screen. This function is usually on the bottom of the screen, in the center.

Click on the button below the word "Menu." This button is on the top center of the keyboard and it often is marked with "Ok" or "Enter." This will open the menu options of your phone.

Scroll down or across the screen using your phone's arrow keys until you land on the "Recent Calls" portion of the menu.

Scroll down to the "Missed Calls" option under "Recent Calls." Click on it to open the list of calls that you missed. This list will always provide you with the phone number of the caller, as well as the time of the call. If the caller is in your contacts list, the caller's name will also appear.
