Other questions about "Overslept"

Q: When I got up, I realized that did overslept. I checked my phone, many call history displayed. I was nervous, but I couldn't do anything, so I sept again. soa natural?
A: Oh no haha, it's unfortunate that happened. Your sentences were easy to understand! There are just a few corrections that could make them sound more natural. In your first sentence, it would be "I had overslept" or "I overslept."

For the second sentence, the first part ("I checked my phone") was a complete sentence, but the second part ("many call history displayed") was incomplete. Even if your second part was a complete sentence, it would have been a comma splice. This means that you tried to connect two independent sentences together with a comma, but you should have separated them with a period. If you want to connect two independent sentences together, you could use an appropriate conjunction (and, but, so, etc.).

For your last sentence, it was great, but you only misspelled "slept." :) If we make the suggested corrections, your final sentences would look like this:

When I got up, I realized that I had overslept. I checked my phone. The call history displayed many calls. I was nervous, but I couldn't do anything, so I slept again.
