Hey you! Your first time here? Introduce yourself :)

Hello, I am a researcher at Addis Ababa University and I am glad to be part of this community. I am working on a research to predict mobile users movement using neural network in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. So, this research needs Call Detail Record (CDR) data of Ethio-telecom.

What do you suggest or recommend about this research?

Is it possible to apply OpenCellid data to this research?

Thank you so much for your help!


Hey Selam,

Nice to hear from you!

OpenCelliD does not have call records of any telecom firm/ subscribed users. We anonymously collect positions of cells from community contributions. Our datasets cannot determine info about a mobile user.

Halo nama saya heri yawan asal negara indonesia. Saya ingin mengetahui lokasi handphone dengan menggunakan imei hp yg saya dapat bagaimana caranya

Thank you for the useful data! We are looking for land owners who lease to cell towers in Indonesia. May I know if land owners are in your database too?

How would you recommend reaching the land owners who are currently leasing to talk to them? Thank you very much!

We do not have info on land owners/ leasing party.

Hi. My name is Hector. Im from Montana and im being watched by law enforcement. Lol. I do need help in using this app info. Thanks


I am a here out of curiosity. With an “old” NOKIA 3310 (model of 2001) I activated the NetMonitor menu function (it is hidden in the firmware). It displays and refreshes data which also can be found in the opencellid database (CID LAC MNC NNC and suc)…this way I can confirm to be there where I pretend to be :wink:

I found transmitters in the database of a range of more than 100kms…in an urban region…I am confused… :slight_smile:


Hey, just joined and loving the OpenCellID database. Amazing work guys!

Hi I’m Ronald Wessels from Cape Town South Africa. My phone is hacked still struggle to get into my accounts. I never knew of such a website until I watched a video on YouTube that really draw my attention
. At the time I felt discourage and hopeless die to the fact that Google couldn’t assist till now. At least after watching the videos through bright side I felt a bit more positive. The hacker controls my whole phone and accounts. For this reason Itrudt that you would help me in how totetrieve a location
What is to The device id the same like The IP address? I noticed a phone with a differentIP address access my Facebook account. Also connected with my device detected on an android app “find my phone”

HI i am jk from india. i want to track couple of phones, as the persons having these numbers are absconding and duped more than 400 people of more than indian rupees 5 crores

We cannot locate phones with phone/ IMEI numbers.

Hi there,

My name is Daniel and I work for a company that is producing in-vehicle equipment for asset management and tracking on airfields. We’re discovering that many airfields are under serviced, especially outside of the terminals. We have been doing cell signal mapping at many of our customer locations prior to rolling out our products, but are finding it difficult locating provider antennas. They really don’t like giving out that information.

We’re using TELIT modems. I wanted to look up some cell tower locations near JFK Airport in New York, but the #MONI string we are using to obtain RSRP and dbm information provides cell tower ID’s that don’t appear to match anything.

For example:
#MONI: Verizon RSRP:-113 RSRQ:-20 TAC:5204 Id:141AA16 EARFCN:2050 PWR:-70dbm DRX:128

I’ve tried looking up the ID of 141AA16 but there are no matches.

What part of the forum would be my best bet to post this question in?

EDIT: Looks like it might be in Hex format instead of decimal. Still can’t find anything under 21080598 though.

My name if I were born a boy would’ve been Jesse. The reason I gotta be stealthy is because I like chicks and some of the cops around here seem to think that’s worse than being a criminal, I guess or maybe it comes across as revolting or challenging to their manhood. Idk. Just because I like women does not mean that I hate men but it certainly does not mean try harder guys ‘she just hasn’t had a real man’ and it’s not criminal so please stop tracking me.

Hey folks,

I’m neither a developer nor a hacker, I’m just a songwriter/composer, but I have an affinity for electronics, and enjoy rooting my mobile and modding the ROM. I also like using oddball apps, which is what led me to this site. Looks like an interesting group.

Best regards.

Thank you for the warm welcome. Just joined and looking forward to contributing. Geo data now plays a critical role ( as we have all discovered ) in delivering so many online services and what better place to understand and support this than here.


Wow. I really have NO clue about any of this. But if i try to understand and read enough perhaps i will learn.
Hi, I’m Shannon


I’m a researcher & just getting to grips with how my tech works, vulnerabilities & how to secure my devices/data.

Really enjoying learning from app’s like this. Interpreting the data & understanding how my device works. Plotting the CID’s & finding the nearest cell sites for my device. Understanding the frequencies, & different types (3g, 4g, etc.) & what effects the different connections have on my device, power use, data use, etc.

Great app. Really reliable & I can now work the data in conjunction with other apps for plotting available connections, etc. Love the community sharing of data for the benefit of all & being a part of adding/contributing to something good whilst getting the benefits of using the app & database.

Nice work guys. Thanks.

Y no perder ese tiempo en algo innecesario.si uno quisiera que el dia fuera de 36hr para alcanzar a terminar lo planeado.
