Tracking down someone's cell phone number can be difficult, if not impossible. After all, one of the reasons that people purchase a mobile phone is so they can have some measure of anonymity. In addition, phone books do not (usually) carry listings of cell phone numbers, so there's no paper trail to follow.

However, that doesn't mean that finding a cell phone number listing is an impossible task. While mobile phone numbers are notoriously tricky to look up, there are a couple of tricks you can try.

Try a search engine.  If you know the mobile phone number already, try entering it into your favorite  search engine  and see what comes up. If the cell phone number you are looking for has ever been entered somewhere on the Web - a blog, a public job profile - it will show up and you'll be able to track to whom it belongs to.

Mobile phone tracking is the ascertaining of the position or location of a mobile phone , whether stationary or moving. Localization may occur either via multilateration of radio signals between (several) cell towers of the network and the phone, or simply via GPS . To locate a mobile phone using multilateration of radio signals, it must emit at least the roaming signal to contact the next nearby antenna tower, but the process does not require an active call. The Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) is based on the phone's signal strength to nearby antenna masts. [1]

Mobile positioning may include location-based services that disclose the actual coordinates of a mobile phone, which is a technology used by telecommunication companies to approximate the location of a mobile phone, and thereby also its user. [2]

The technology of locating is based on measuring power levels and antenna patterns and uses the concept that a powered mobile phone always communicates wirelessly with one of the closest base stations , so knowledge of the location of the base station implies the cell phone is nearby.
