Does C# have any coding to provide location service for mobile sites?
An example would be bestbuy viewing it on your mobile phone. They use it on their weekly ad's page to pull the zip code your currently in to populate the box. I'm just wondering if I could integrate this into our mobile site.

No, I'm asking about building mobile sites or getting the phone number.
I just want to be able to grab the phones locations for store lookups. Like determine the zip code the user is currently in by their phone location and use that zip to lookup a store in that area.

It is not possible to get the phone number from the Mobile web application. Mobile web application cannot retrieve any data from the device. If you want to retrieve the phone information, u need to develop a Mobile Application[Thick client].
Hope it helps u...

I don't want the mobile phone number. I just want to be able to pull the location that the phone is at with if the user accepts. If you go to bestbuy.com from your mobile phone and select store location. They have a button on the top right that lets you
use your current location.

You need to identify the location based on the client ip. For more information, check the following link.
The above site offers the location and details, if you provide the ip address.
Check the API provided by the site.
