Since updating to 4.2 my Recent call list no longer works.

Favorites, Contacts, Keypad and Voicemail buttons all respond as expected, but the Recents button just quits the Phone and returns me to the App menu/home page.

Have done a full Reset and Restore to no avail.

Really missing Missed Calls etc, kinda a fundamental feature on a mobile phone

Anyone else having this problem?

Mac Pro/MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

    Same problem on my girlfriends iphone 3G. Recent call list crashes out to home screen and kill phone app after updating to 4.2. Any ideas anyone. Ir could be that there were recent calls missed in the backup (that was restored after update) which is crashing the phone. No way to reset this however... Any ideas anyone?

    Having the same issue here. Only difference is it doesn't always crash, sometimes I'm greeted with just an empty list. But none of my calls are ever recorded in my recent calls, incoming/outgoing/missed/etc.

    iPhone 3G 16GB white 4.2.1

    Any word on what to do when pressing on the "recent calls" button causes the phone to jump back to the home menu each time. No jailbreak or unlock... Vanilla 3GS 32GB. Have erased and restored twice.... same problem each time????? Help

    Since updating my phone to 4.2.1 i now cant bring up recent calls neither!!


    Ive so many missed calls but from who i dont know as whenever i press recent calls, its crashes and goes back to home page!!


    Ive tried to revert back to a previous update but unfortunate for me i have done any backups


    I just now tried to contact apple but they wanna charge me to notify them of THEIR MESS UP!!

    Theyre obviously having a joke!!

    I have had this problem since 4.2 as well. When I upgraded from my 3G to the 4G phone.  And i am frustrated as can be.   Apple wants to charge me as well.  I asked them why they wanted to charge me for them to tell me how to fix their issue. I was told that there are not enough people having this issue to call it a bug.  I say BS to that.  It is a bug, many people are having this issue.  I have been in the computer bussiness for 35 years and they are not going to tell me this is not an issue with their OS.  I finally got around to doing a rest - erased everything and started from scratch.  and that did not fix it.  The only thing left, I think, is to restore as a new device.  If that does not fix the issue the only thing left would be to pay extortion money to Apple and make them fix it, then take them to small claims court, or get rid of the iPhone and get a Droid.  Anyone else have any suggestions???????

    i just found a solution & it works for me "3gs 32g ios4.2.1"

    just delet the file "call_history.db" in :   //private/var/wireless/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db

    then reboot your iphone & thats it.
