    If you find someone with a database of all network operator's cell tower IDs, and WLAN access points, and also know where in the world they reside physically, then you may be able to get an approximate location with that information at hand (exept that getting the cell ID from j2me can be impossible on some devices, and same goes for most devices regarding WLAN details).

    Read up, e.g., on the wikipedia, what kind of information you need to have in order to determine where you are:

    In most cases, you simply don't have any means to get the required information using "pure j2me" (regardless of the definition of "pure").
