jacko98,

In general, the answer is you can't. The typical user cannot track a cell phone. There are some exceptions:
1) The owner's cellular service always can (by GPS if it's on, by trangulation if GPS is off);
2) Law enforcement can (in the USA, at least), with a warrant or in a demonstrable emergency OR when you call 911 (most modern phones automatically turn on GPS when 911 is called);
3) Some cellular services offer a GPS tracking service for parents; and,
3) In some cases and for some phones there is tracking software, which sends data back to a central site where the phone's location can be tracked over the web or via the software manufacturer's special application. Typically this is used by companies tracking employee travel/location during the work day.

Here are some examples of the latter two:

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

If you aren't the person paying for the phone plan, there are no legal means for you to do so.
