Can an IP be traced back to a mobile device user?

slumdog asked 2 years ago

When I use my blackberry to access the internet, my mobile IP is given to them. Can this be traced back to me personally? what data is given when a mobile IP is looked up?

it can be traced back to you the same way your home IP can be traced back to you

the average person can only figure out who the ISP (in your case, mobile provider) is, but to actually get YOUR info, they would need cooperation by the ISP (unless they can trick you into doing some other things to give up some more info)
