You cannot if you have your mobile on. The police for instance is checking which sender your mobile last responded to and can that way track you to about 200 m.

Re: how can i tell if someone is tracking my mobile phone
Your cell phone provider always tracks you. Your cell phone makes dozens of connections per second to surrounding base-stations to determine your location in order to give you the most optimal signal and prepare handshakes. Providers keep a record of these connections.

When an entity like the government tracks you, they do this by accessing the providers database, not the actual phone. So you will not notice this. Certain employees, depending on their position are able to access this database too.

In order for a person with no clearance whatsoever to track your mobile, that person would need to have had physical access to your smartphone in order to install such a feature or make use of a feature installed by you. There are several apps available for smartphones which are capable to transform your smartphone into a tracking-device. These apps are build in order to track your phone in case it's stolen or to find out where your kid(s) is/are. But again, this feature needs to be activated on the smartphone itself.

Different types of connection protocols comes with different symbols. GPS is offline per default because it drains the battery. If you see the GPS symbol light up all of the sudden and you didn't perform an action which could have triggered that, check your phone for such an app/feature.

If none of the above apply, you are just being paranoid. tounge

most phones have a "turn location OFF" feature built-in that will disable the GPS.

do that.

Everything you do on your cell is recorded. Just like the internet. You should know this by now.

If you see this number calling you (000-000-0000) and you answer it, then you will be tracked
