    That would be because everybody has 1 call. The list will change with your calling habits, and not everybody will be flagged as "frequent"

    Because for most people, unless you are trying to hide something from snooping eyes it isn't really that big a deal?

    Personally I had forgotten that it was even there (and I suspect others never even noticed it) until you brought it up. It is simply a statistic based on your call history. Not much of a reason for an "uproar" (as always, in my not so humble opinion, anyway).

    K, uproar was an attempt at hyperbole. But I honestly just want to clear it for times when I am showing off, or people ask to use it. Nothing to "hide" just like to keep some of my business private.
    But I guess you are right (sigh)

    bump. I'd like to clear this as well. Some asshole at work has my personal cell number and keeps calling it instead of my desk. Every time I go to my favorite contacts, asshole is right there below them. Thinking of this person literraly makes me angry. Some of us have nohing to hide, just social issues :D deleted the contact and re-added it for now but there must be a better way

    From a privacy stand point I can see how this borders on insanity.

    Even though I have never ran in to any issues with it...I can understand the questionable nature behind some of the warranted objections to this.

    The response "What do you have to hide" is a bit simplistic. What's annoying about this goes beyond people here debating personal preference related to privacy. It's a core issue of software design. ANY list or data set that the phone creates on the fly should have a function to clear it out. It's just basic good software design. Look at all the other options to clear browser cache, clear location, clear call log, etc. This is clearly a BUG and an oversight that QA missed, an it's insulting to have it sold as a "feature".

    Why on the Droid does most of the stuff supplied by Google -- search, maps, gmail sync -- seem to be well designed and why does the stuff written by Motorola -- the camera interface, the laughable auto-focus, anything related to the menus and buttons used when making a phone call -- seem to be slapped together by five guys in some third-world country making $10 and hour?

    >> It is simply a statistic based on your call history.

    Right. And your browser cache and browser history is "just a statistic based on your browsing history" and the call log is "just a statistic based on what calls you made" and the GPS location tracking is "just a statistic based on where you've been".

    Basic software design: ANY list or data set that the phone creates dynamically or on the fly should have an option to reset it or clear it. Period.

    I need this solution as well. you should be able to clear individuals from the favorite list without deleting them as contacts.

    I'm on-board with this as well. Seems illogical to me and should be fairly simple to implement. Maybe that will be a selling point of the Droid 2.

    Read about an app that was developed to add functions to the call log, including deleting the call log and frequently called list. Unfortunately it requires the phone to be rooted to use.

    Has anyone using the 2.1 rom checked to see if Google has fixed this omission?

    All logs should have the option to clear them, kinda odd that Google overlooked this.
