I don't think you can get an exact location. They can only tell which cell tower you're logged on to and they cover quite an area. . .

There is a satnav download for phones that will do it

You are usually on more than one mast, and they triangulate your position. The breakdown services use it when you break down and need help but don't know where you are.

I'm sure google mobile maps uses your connection to locate you. Very handy if your phone can use it.
