If you receive a call from unfamiliar mobile number, you may want to trace its location and find out who the owner is. If you own a touch screen phone, PDA or Smartphone you can search for GPS applications that track the location of the mobile number in the apps store, located on your phone. You can also do a simple reverse phone search on your computer. Either method you use will give you the general location of the phone. However, you will have to pay extra for finding out the owner's name, home address and background information.
