[Calls history] can't see the history for numbers not in the contacts

Hello why either with OS10.2 it is not possible to check the calls/events history related with a number not in the contacts?

I find really silly this missing feature.

I receive so many calls, for my job. When I'm going to call back a number EVERY TIME I must add the number to contacts with a dummy name "tmpXX" (where xx is a sequential number) to next being able to goto the contact and see the history of events happen with that number and understand if have I ever have been in touch with it, when, how long.

Do you think it is a good Idea to continue to forget to re-implement this feature?

BlackBerry is based on databases, why don't you allow to query the calls history directly from the calls list???

I never knew that BlackBerry was based on databases.

Re: [Calls history] can't see the history for numbers not in the contacts

The blackberry data are stored in database format (sqlite?)
anyway, the simple fact that in the home screen, as soon you type something, begins returning results is a querying process.
It would be sense-less to have such huge amount of info and don't rely on a DB.
Anyway.
The point it is not that the system uses or not DBS, the point is that calls history is available only if the number is added to contacts.

Why BlackBerry obliges me to add a number to contacts if that is a number that I DON'T NEED nor WANT to have in my contacts list?

This had ever worked in previous BlackBerry OSes up to 7.x

I don't know if BlackBerry uses sqlite or not. Do you?

 

Anyway, great suggestion. This is a user-to-user community support forum. We are not RIM employees, but volunteers who enjoy assisting other users. RIM personnel rarely comment on queries posted here.

Unfortunately they don't.

Hopefully they could have a brief read to this forum and finally become aware that OS10 has been shoot out too immature

Too much leaks and bugs-like events.

The worst part are the missing feature that were typical of a BlackBerry phone.

This is a sense of NO respect for the historical BlackBerry users: removing consolidated features and habits.

Re: [Calls history] can't see the history for numbers not in the contacts

Yep, it's been discussed here in many many threads and many users here have made many many feature requests to BlackBerry and in turn, to be totally fair, many many of those requests have been honorerd and feature such as you state were in OS7, etc., have been included in BB10 upgrades.

 

So, we keep requesting. 

 

Tell @MichaelClewley on twitter. He will listen.
