REALLY OLD PHONE RECORDS

 

 

I am trying to reconstruct with phone records a pattern of communication ( on my own phone) which occurred the years 2000 and 2005.  I no longer have the records. Is it possible to obtain those records.  I'm glad to pay a fee for them, if required

Here is what it says on the billing history page: "If you require history going back more than 16 months, visit an AT&T store, dial 611 on your mobile phone, or call Customer Service at 800.331.0500. We will provide your past bill and payments information free of charge once a year, but there is a $5.00 fee for each additional request."

In other words, one old bill is free each year, the rest cost $5 each. I got 2 old bills recently, be advised you only get the billing data and call summary (number of calls, minutes used, etc), not the call history.

When you say that I don't get the "call history", does that mean I don't get the phone numbers to and from which calls/texts were sent/received....because that is the information that would help me solve the problem.

Similar question. I need old landline phone call records from circa 1992 to 1998. Being Ameritech back then of SBC (maybe it was still Illinois Bell) it seems the records should be there on some microfilm. As long as I have the past phone number I used, provide my then current name and address as well as any ID proof requested then is it possible to get my incoming and outgoing phone call history? *Please be detailed on how to do this. Thank you in advance!

@Procurement I have no idea how long land line call records are kept but there is no chance they have anything that far back. This thread says 2 years for landline call records: https://forums.att.com/t5/AT-T-Phone-Account/How-can-I-obtain-landline-phone-records-for-1998/td-p/5381792

Sorry.  No way do they have records from 20+ years ago under another business name.
