So you can call back from another phone, if you left yours at home. or at least know that someone called you, even if you don't have your phone on you for some reason.

It would be best if the feature was given by the phone companies (Comverse? Are you listening) but could work on the phone itself, although in that case missed calls because the phone was off won't be recorded.

One method for Android phones. [tatterdemalion, Nov 04 2014]

Mobizen https://www.mobizen.com
Another method for Android phones. [tatterdemalion, Nov 04 2014]


       Maybe the NSA could do this for $5 a month, defray some of their overheads

       This can be done with an Android based phone using a web service like Airdroid. You can check your call logs using a web interface.   

       It will also send/receive sms, file manage, even view the camera.

       Hi tatter. (Nice to meet you, I liked your Digital Clock that Ticks).   

       Are you saying it can be developed, or that it already has been done (baked in the HB jargon). If so could you give a link?   

       In any case I'm talking about a service which preferably works even when the phone is off or inaccessible, lost, left at home, stolen or broken.

       It has been baked in the sense that there are services/apps for the Android phone platform that will do this. So it's baked if you use an Android phone (in which case you can go the Google Play app store, search for and grab). Airdroid is one such app, Mobizen is another, there are others.   

       Most commonly these work by installing the app on your phone, setting up an account, and then accessing a web service using that account. You're logged in on both devices so your information from the phone can be shared with the web service. So for example, you can see your call logs (aka online call list). The phone needs to be functional and turned on, but it doesn't matter where it is, as long as it has signal.   

       I can't speak about other phone platforms such as iOS or Windows Phone but it would not surprise me if something like this exists for those platforms. (Actually I think iOS can do this natively using the most recent version and a Mac running the latest Mac OS.)

       But my idea is about a service from the calling companies. So your phone can be stolen or turned off.

       You said   

       // could work on the phone itself   

       which is what I responded to. It's not exactly what you described, but close enough that I thought it warranted a mention.
tatterdemalion, Nov 05 2014

       Yup, your right! I wasn't aware of missed calls being noted in an app on the phone.   

       I still think it would be a great service if the switching companies would provide it.   

       Thanks! I liked your "digital clock that ticks".
