There are definitely call fares with sub-minute granularity. The minute is
let me repeat my question here. Does this suppose to be represent spent
time on calls (what I called talk time) or actual billing minutes.
If we talk about correct billing minutes then you are just opening
pandora's box. Since we don't know the billing. And difference between
air time, incoming/outgoing calls, multiparty calls, hold calls etc. and
their billing schemes make this just insane.
So what is the actual requirement here. So far ever single answer was
not satisfying. And that is why I proposed to just make this count the

So I made a lengthy call to my mum this morning, using a desk phone. And it
was showing minute:second, not just minutes. I have never seen a phone that
does not show seconds and it would look pretty dumb to me.
You do realize that this is NOT the feature we are talking about here.
The actual display of the duration of a call is pretty simple and
currently easy to handle inside the UI. And that can be done up to the
millisecond display if you or your UI designer wants it.
The proposed call counters here are long term counters showing your
overall time. So showing minutes seems to be precise enough.
