Subject: Re: [Geowanking] mobile phone tracking services in US & UK?
I am trying to identify wireless carriers that offer location information
to client apps running on phones without gps, using e911, or cell tower
locations or (?). I've re-read the threads from earlier this year on mobile
phone tracking in the US and the UK but found less information than I
I have heard, or seen, tangential mentions but no real confirmations that
Sprint, Verizon, Nextel, Orange, and T-mobile, and maybe others all offer
location coordinates to applications.
Can any one confirm any or all of this with pointers to carrier developer
or partner support web sites for technical details and/or pricing?

There are a couple of companies that are trying to commercialize this
kind of service. Check out http://www.uLocate.com
I wrote the J2ME code that sends the location info from the phones to
their server. Currently only Nextel has opened up the three elements
neccessary to do this kind of service: 1) internet data service, 2)
ability to load a Java or Brew app on to the phone, 3) a GPS chipset
that a app can access
