Can anyone tell me if its possible to clear the recent activity list on a prepaid mobile? The reason why, is I want to sell the phone and sim together, but don't want a potential buyer to have access to my friends numbers that are listed in the recent activity section.

Every phone I've had allows this. But you haven't said what brand of phone you have.

The recent activity is in Your Telecom, not recent activity on the phone itself

Go into a telecom store and ask for a new prepaid number.  And clear all the recently dialed/received numbers from the phoine.

Nope, it was just a sim that came with the phone when I bought it and I registered it on non stop text and used it a few times

I haven't used my SIM card for storing contacts/texts for years - do people still do it? All my contacts are synced along with email and calendar with my email using activesync. It's free with gmail not that I use Gmail....

Ring *333 thirty times or 0800 000 000 then wait a while it'll be the only activity showing. Or use a bit of mobile data, that's the only thing I can ever see on my 'recent activity'
