Fun Application with Google Maps

Use this to geographically locate an area code and exchange prefix of an unknown phone number (i.e. 512-490-XXXX). It’s not exact because exchanges still can cover a pretty broad area. It worked well locating the general location of my DSL telephone line and our old home phone in Houston. I don’t think it was sure what to do with my cell phone. It looks like it just picked a spot close to the center of town (I’m pretty sure cell phone numbers are assigned within given exchange prefixes to keep them separate from landlines.) Just tried with a friend’s cell phone number and it was way off.
