Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Are records available to police showing the location of a mobile phone on a contract from April 2013 during a phone call


This depends on two factors.

A mobile phone knows where it is and at any one time because it receives signals from the mast. The location of it in April 2013 should be capable of ascertainment.

Timing it to a particular phone call depends on the mobile phone records of the company though. It would need to be an outgoing call. Mobile phone companies do not keep records of incoming calls.

Usually they will keep records of up to one year of outgoing calls.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
