There is info on the net how the cell id is made up and it contains info on
location etc. maybe some sort of db to pull this info from would help, but
bet it would be huge.

If your cells display with propper names on your phone I'd say lucky you. I 
don't know if other places do this or not but I've never seen it. I'm not 
sure how exactly they'd get that name to you either. It would be nice to 
have thoe.
