    Is there some way to determine the IP address of a mobile device of someone else? For instance, if they send a multiple media text (picture or video) or an email, can their IP address be determined in any way?

    If you use internet to send your data, your smartphone is just another computer. You still have an IP adress and a MAC adress, so depending in which country you are, you can be pinpointed easier than a computer since you give your real life ID when you buy the device.
