All theories are welcome.

I'm not sure what you're actually looking for. Are you referring to the geo-targeting feature that's available on modern mobile phones. What exactly are you trying to do?

Just want to find the location of someone when his mobile is with him lol. The guys at orange do this in the blink of an eye. How am I supposed to do this?

Okay, you can use Google Latitude to do this. The person you want to track need to install this on their mobile device (so it needs to be an android phone, iphone, windows mobile etc). You can do the same on your phone and add your contacts and this will then become your own GPS tracking powered by Google Maps. See this link for more information :

That's nice. But if it's an old phone? E.g N73 or 3310?

For older mobile phones, it's not going to be so easy. I think you will need to subscribe to a GPS service and have a tracking system installed on the phone.
