Ow? I can imagine that the cell phone company doesn't want to give a map if I ask nicely, but with some simple AT commands I can make my phone show the current cell number and alert me when it changes. Add a gps unit, some logging software and I can map their cell numbers. I've been playing with this, see
In my country (the Netherlands) I can find the actual location by checking the register of antenna licenses.
