"When I was finally able to clear them out I had over 70 calls in the list. It annoyed the hell out of me. Now I don't have a "Frequently Called" list at all."
It sounds like you do have a solution... Can you please tell me about this 0.99 app and the "root" procedure you refer to? Thank you... It seems that all I have to do is make one call to someone, and they end up on my "frequently called" list.
The other thing you can do, is replace the stock dialer with another, like exDialer. I actually like itt better, and it does have an option to clear call logs. Granted, it won't clear the calls in your stock app, but it does offer an added layer of discretion.
