Default Call duration?

Anyone know the easiest way to view a call's details, to see call duration? The only way I can find is to go to a contact's info, view call history, then get the details of the call there.

yeah, c'mon, this seems a little absurd. When I look at call history via the phone app, it only shows "today", "yesterday", "2 days ago"...etc. No call duration and at what time the call completed.

Seems the only way I can find to get this is through the same method you mentioned. But what if you want the info for a number that is not in your contacts, do you have to add the number to contacts just to see the info?

You mean you want the duration of the call while you're IN the call?
It's really small, I believe it's in the top right corner of the screen.. I can't remember.

That's good to know too, but it would be preferable to have some detailed history. Sometimes I need to reflect back on an arrival time, etc., i.e. called a customer as I pulled into their parking lot, or even for a support call I am going to bill my time for.

Press "Phone"--->Menu--->Call history--->Click Phone icon to right of each call you want to view..It gives call time and duration.

Ok, I could have sworn I tried that and it 'called' the person leaving me to believe it was a 'dial' icon but I just tested it again and it works! I suppose maybe I fat fingered because pressing anywhere outside of that icon originates a call to that number. Thx.

I had the same problem (and did the same thing .. calling folks instead of getting call duration :-) .. not the best design. And even knowing this, it still happens too easily.
