After identifying your phone, the next process is to select the types of file you want for recovery. For this topic, we just tick the box beside call logs among the options given and click "Next" to go on.

Step 3: Root the ZTE phone for comprehensive scan

Before the call log recovery software digs up and finds your deleted call logs, you'll want to click the "Rooting Tools" button at the bottom to root your device and make a complete scan on the device memory.

Once rooted, the program will take a while to scan your ZTE phone thoroughly.
