    Of course you don't need GPS in a mobile phone...
    On a normal GSM/GPRS/UMTS network a mobile phone can be located
    up on a few meters, with a cross pointing location ...

    This is used in Europe quitte often by the police and gouvernment.

    If the Network Provider sells there mobile phone numbers/lines to companies
    that also want to know the location of those devices (workers), there is nothing
    that has to be changed in their network to enable this.

    So , yes big brother is watching you.

    Also swapping phones, or prepaid cards etc. doesn't help ...

    One good aspect of this is nailing the deadbeat employee in the field.
