Way2SMS.com Introduces Call Location Tracing (India)
Way2sms.com, one of the most popular communication tools in India that allows people to send free text messages from the web to mobile phones has introduced a new feature called “Mobile Number Tracker” that helps users trace caller’s location.
The “Mobile Number Tracker” feature is like a caller location-tracing search engine that lets you find the location of the anonymous caller right from the comfort of your home computer. All you need to do is, go to way2sms.com and click on “Find Location” button, enter a mobile number and you are instantly looking at a blip like indicator pointing the location of the caller on the map.
The service basically address the questions concerning ‘where’ instead of ‘Who’ is calling. Of course, that’s because the company wouldn’t want to violate security concerns and reports that it does not maintain a database of all the mobile phones users in the nation for security concerns.
Although, the new feature does not detail the exact location of the caller, it does however, let you drill down from states to cities, districts and major municipal localities. You can search for the caller starting at the Map, Satellite, Hybrid and terrain views of the location of the caller.

The Mobile Number Tracker does not provide the name and address of the caller due to security reasons and is a free web service. Although all other services provided by way2sms require user to login, the ‘Find Location’ feature is free from any such constraints and so users can directly access this feature without the need to log into their way2sms account.
I’m not sure if this service actually displays the active/present location of the caller or the one which was registered with the network provider at the time of obtaining a SIM or a new connection, just in case you want to query a number that’s actually on active ‘roaming’.
For instance, if querying the location of a Delhi-based SIM would return the caller location as Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, while the caller was actually using the Roaming plan and enjoy a weekend in Goa. Otherwise, the service offered by the website is absolutely praise-worthy.
