    Call time is enabled by default with the 1.0.3 update.

    You mean it displays how long you are on a call while you are on the phone...that's been there from day one!

    Still no duration in the call log, though.

    The mod is on the wiki if you want to do it.

    You can't yet but it is very easy to modify the files...

    From the wiki:

    Show call duration in the call log

    Sprint always customizes their phones to conceal call duration information. This avoids angry phone calls from confused customers who are surprised when their 1:01 phone call results in 2:00 minutes charged to their account. I can sympathize. However, I won't call complain, and I occasionally want to know how long a call was after the fact.

    There is a system preference phoneAppHideCallDuration which appears to control this, but it merely provides a default value. The phone app caches the value and saves it as a cookie. As an exercise, I'll show you how to set the preference as well.

    To set the phoneAppHideCallDuration preference:
    [user@linuxhost]$ ssh -p 222 palm-pre
    user@castle:~$ su
    root@castle:/home/user# luna-send -n 1 palm://com.palm.systemservice/setPreferences '{"phoneAppHideCallDuration": false}'
    ** Message: serviceResponse Handling: 2, { "returnValue": true }

    Here we've used luna-send to broadcast a message requesting the systemservice to set a preference (I believe you can actually specify multiple preferences at once, the payload format is a json hashtable). Unfortunately, that only sets the default, so to actually see the change we need to update a cookie stored in the phone app. We'll do that now:
    root@castle:/home/user# cd /var/palm/data/
    root@castle:/var/palm/data# sqlite3 cookies.db
    SQLite version 3.6.1
    Enter ".help" for instructions
    Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
    sqlite> update Cookies set value = "%220%22" where domain_head = ".usr.palm.applications.com.palm." and domain_tail = "app.phone" and path = "/usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phone" and "name" = "mojo_cookie_hidecalllogduration";
    sqlite> .exit
    root@castle:/var/palm/data# exit
    user@castle:~$ exit
    Connection to palm-pre closed.

    This time we've used sqlite3 to update the cookies database directly. The primary key of the Cookies table (in the cookies database) is (domain_head, domain_tail, path, name), we specify the full key, and update the value. Note the value field is always percent-encoded and in this case represents the string "0" (including the quotes). To see your changes, reboot your phone. I've been doing this by holding the power key and turning it off, though presumably a shutdown -r would work as well (I have not tried it though).

    Note: if you are typing in the sql by hand, take care you get it correct. If you make a typo and the where portion does not match any records you will not get any feedback. To verify that your update was successful run the following SQL after your issue the update: select * from Cookies where domain_tail = "app.phone"

    I would like to do this but after killing my Pre by rooting and trying a complicated mod before, I am planning on sticking to the really simple mods, like those that simply involve commenting or uncommenting lines, or maybe just a little more. This one is clearly not THAT simple but doesn't look that bad. Is it possible that there is, or could be, a tutorial like the one for adding launcher pages, something a little more step by step than these? Thanks!
