    am I missing something? I was lured by the interface and nokia brand to buy a windows phone, but I had no idea something as simple as checking call duration can be so frustrating (for work related reasons, I need to be able to see the duration of calls). this reason alone is enough to send me back to Android. how can you call windows phone business friendly?

    Tap on phone then on the call. Swipe to the left to bring up your call history for that contact/number.

    Edit: it appears that you can't. Microsoft needs to fix that. It is a pretty basic feature.

    If you have a Nokia device, you can use this app.

    Finally there is a way. Found it on other post.
    Open call history --> Tap and hold on recipient you are interested in --> click Details.
    Although you will see this information only for Today and sadly still won't know how long you were on the phone last week.
