    Location through cell tower triangulation

    I would like to get location data through cell tower triangulation (Ovi Maps seems to manage this).
    Is this available at all in the API?

    I can see how to do it with GPS location but can't find what I'm looking for in the docs.

    Any help would be great!

    Basically you should just use the positioning APIs and let the backend there decide which methods to use. Basically user should be in control on deciding which location methods would be enabled and used with the device.
