    How to: [delete frequently called numbers] ?

    Let’s start at the “home page” >> tap the “Phone” icon >> there are three tabs along the top of the screen: “Dialer”, “Recent” and “Favorites”.

    I find it strange that one can delete the roster of (recently called numbers), but there is no apparent way to delete the roster of “Frequently Called” numbers.

    I’m trying to be funny, but let’s say that I’m married. I call my girlfriend on my phone. I can delete her number from the recently called numbers, but the number is permanently listed on the frequently called numbers roster?

    And if there is no way to delete the frequently called numbers – what is the rationale?

    I pose the question because I assume (I would hope) Motorola monitors this board for customer feedback.

    Google is a fan of the harmonious nuclear family model and want to keep that in tact by thwarting off adultery. :biggrin:

    I don't think anyone has found a way to bypass this yet, but have seen it brought up a couple of times.

    Why is the door on the right always locked?

    I haven't tried it, but I'd guess that if you cleared data and cache on the dialer app, that would get rid of them. However, it would also clear your call history and they would eventually come back.

    I would like to get rid of that list as well. Not for privacy reasons, but rather, that list appears on my favorites/starred in Android tab. Now my list of about 15 people is 3-4 times longer than it should be.

    I do have the answer to this question, but it requires your phone to be rooted. And no I'm not married and don't have a girlfriend either :p

    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. :icon_ devil:

    No sir I did not. It's a .99 cent app in the Store, but it DOES require root. You can either clear the list or apply a "patch" that will take away the list completely. :D

    Is it a secret, or do you think you might eventually share the name of the app?

    "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.

    Did you ever find the app that clears the frequently called list items?

    I think at least 5 people have to post "Gee MatyP, you're the greatest ever" before he is going to share.

    Matty are you going to share the .99 app you downloaded to get rid of the frequently called list? Im interested because my list is growing. And can you explain what the (Root) thing is and what does it do? Thanks

    Try (1 tap cleaner) in the play store. It should work for you.

    I wonder if there's an alternative to the native Droid (4.0.4) phone app that doesn't keep track of whom you called.

    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.
