    Unfortunately no such service exist for consumers, at least in the United States. In the USA only carriers and organizations with authoritative power, for example, the FBI, can ping someone's phone to triangulate their position or track them via GPS through the user's carrier.

    what do you mean through user's carrier? How is the GPS data shared with the carrier?

    All phones are tracked. Do a google search, there was a big uproar about this.
    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!
