The triangulation method to locate cell phones. 
 
The towers can be existing cell-phone towers, water tanks, tall buildings, or 
other locations where receiving antennas can be mounted.

Using the known speed of radio signals, the distance from receivers can be calculated. It takes at least three and preferably four to get a good location.
