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.
or threatening him/her with telling their spouse where they REALLY were! Oops!
