Call history, also known as call list, provides itemised information about telephone calls or connection requests of a telephone extension. Call lists can be provided by various devices. Thus, telephones as well as telephone systems and routers can be equipped with a call history function. In cordless DECT telephones, the call history can usually be retrieved directly on the handset via the base station. In many cases it is possible to directly dial the telephone number for a reconnection by selecting a particular entry. The number of entries in the call history is limited; however, it may vary greatly among different devices. When the maximum number of entries is reached, the oldest entries are removed from the list to accommodate the new entries.
