ksharpless,

The reality is that the only way to do this is by installing software onto the phone in question, unless you are a cell phone company or a law enforcement agency.

Typically a small application runs on the phone, and sends home the location data every designated time interval.

Unless, of course, you believe this site: http://www.sat-gps-locate.com/ :)

Cheers,
