    Need more info like what type of phone, data cable, file structure and etc.

    If it is an iPhone you can use a 3rd party app, email the waypoints / tracks in GPX or KML format.

    There is a new app called Signal for the iphone, it gives you the locations / information of cell towers in your vicinity / the ones you are using, overlaid onto google maps.

    There are plenty of web based apps that people have developed that can track your phone using cell towers and A-GPS. Most notably, MobileMe and Undercover.

    There is also an app called call data that displays the suburb the call originated from landline phones
