You can have mine for $50

Cingular goes after businesses selling cell phone records.
In granting a temporary restraining order, a federal court in Atlanta has barred these sorts of agencies from "possessing any confidential customer information obtained from Cingular, regardless of the form or manner of storage." The order also bars companies from "disposing" of such customer information "other than by returning it to Cingular."


As of Monday, Locatecell.com was still promising that it could provide a list of up to 100 outbound calls placed from almost any phone — cell or landline — for $110-$125. For $95, Locatecell says it can supply a working cellphone number of anybody.
