Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING LOCATION INFORMATION
Abstract:
An approach is provided for delivering location information and/or other information via free calls. Both a user device and a location server can determine at least one cell of a geographical area, and determine at least one phone number associated to the at least one cell. The at least one cell represents a location of the device within the geographical area. An initiation of a call request to the at least one phone number causes, at least in part, a reporting of the location of the device.
