    When viewing the recently called list, hit the three dots in the lower right and clear call log

    You cannot be able to delete them. It eventually stays there.

    when looking at the "frequently called list" i hit the 3 dots, and i get 3 options: contacts to display,new contact, settings.

    there is no option to clear it in settings either?:thinking:

    One way is to clear cache and data for the 'contacts storage' app. This may or may not be desirable as it will clear more then just the frequently called list.

    set it so that you close the contacts list while looking at 'the one face' in the blue line across the top, then hit the three dots list and choose 'contacts to display'.

    Once you have that list set up, clcome out of contacts on the 'one face' display (this is your main contacts list) it should always open on this in the future, but it will always seem to open on the last contact page you closed. (just did a test, changed page, turned phone off, and then on again, back to the same page)

    I believe you can clear your call log as mentioned above, but there is no way to disable the "frequently called list" .... at least not on stock android devices. Clearing call log doesn't even clear the frequently called list.
