Is it possible to increase the time length covered by call history records? I think it's currently fixed to 1 month, older entries will be deleted by the log rotator. Is this hard-coded?

I know there are some utilities exist to backup / archive call logs, however archiving takes the functionality away from the dialer history. So I take archiving methods under another topic, for an even longer or a permanent call history.

Info: Using Samsung Galaxy S, not rooted, I can root if needed.

thank you lie, I'm aware about this kind of software, however I consider archiving as a second step. I've updated the question with a note. – SuperDuck Sep 12 '11 at 1:06

You can create a phone call log using Google Calendar using the CallTrack app which has the option to send it to your Google Calendar.
