        This is good feature to have. There are lot of application that can be developed should we have access to call log. Most phones show call history in All, Missed, Dialed and Received category. WP8 doesnt seem to do that. They either add that to the platform or provide API, so that Developers can develop such kind of apps.

        If this feature is guarded by an explicit permission, it should be safe for security and privacy. Personally, I would allow a single and useful app to access my call history.
