Recents Reappear

Post by Stephen Hart » Mon Jun 29, 2015 7:59 pm

Has anyone seen this?

Several times, I've seen recent calls in the Phone app reappear after I cleared all of them. Some go back to 2014.
Even weirder, some are calls from my wife's iPhone, that I didn't initiate or receive.

Sometimes this can occur as I'm watching: I clear all recents, then a whole bunch reappear.

I couldn't find anything on the web searching for this as a potential error in iOS. But it turns out that on the Verizon site, you can look up recents beyond the limit that the iPhone will store. So I'll chalk this up to a Verizon error of some kind.

So this happened again today. My iPhone showed recents back into 2014, and many that were actually my wife's calls (a different phone number but the same account).

I checked on our Verizon account for both numbers, and didn't see anything in call history anywhere near that far back. Weird.
