Locations based services in phone without GPS

In handsets that do not have GPS systems the service provider gets the location of the user by calculating the delay in radio signal of the nearest cell phone tower.

How it works

If you do not have a GPS system in your mobile phone then browse to social networking websites in your mobile and announce your position by push notification. The service provider gets your latitudinal and longitudinal position on the map through a router. After this the provider searches for the cell phone tower nearest to your location. It uses a base station which has a radius of inaccuracy. With this they can be sure of the location. The SMSs and notifications then start pouring in based on local events, weather, services, medical arrangements, entertainment etc. All this happens within a short time and needs precision designing which the innovative people at Telogo communications ltd are capable of providing.
