So, first of all, you need to download and install Call Logs Backup & Restore from the Google Play Store, you can download it here.

After the installation is done, open it and you will see a screen on your phone/tablet as shown below. Here you can select whatever you want today, probably you want to backup your call logs first of all, so just tap ”Backup”.


As soon as you tap the Backup button you will receive options as shown below, Here you need to specify the storage where you want to store your backed up XML file. This XML file will be used to restore the call logs a later time when you want. By default is internal storage but you can change it depending on your choice. I prefer External Storage Card because whenever you wipe your phone to factory data, your internal storage is wiped as well, so having it on External Storage will keep it saved as long as you don’t format it manually.


Enter the name for your backed up file and press ok, the backup process will start and an XML file will be created on your internet / external storage.




So now when you are done backing up the call logs, let’s learn how to restore the backed up call logs.
