    Default FieldTest Information for GeoLocation

    Is there any way to use the information that FieldTest provides on cell tower connections to get your current location? I know this is available as a for-pay service with some iPhones, but I'm wondering if there's any way to turn that information into something useful, for geocoding pictures for example, or sending your location to the Google Maps widget.

    Go Sox!

    The problem is that only the carrier (ATT) has the database of cell towers' geolocation.

    Without this information, geolocation with Field test data will be far from precise, maybe even useless for the type of application you suggest.

    Does anybody else know if this could work? I'm interested also.

    It might be possible to get the data somehow. I have to believe it is, otherwise third parties wouldn't be able to build businesses on it as they have.
