Mr. McAfee (sorry couldn't resist a little humour),

At a minimum, the mobile operator knows what mobile tower your handset is currently connected to and current signal strength, plus similar information for other towers that your handset is within range of.

As a starting point for further research, I'd suggest starting at Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_tracking

There are some interesting articles in the "References" section.
