The advances of mobile computing technologies in recent years contributes to the growing of mobile information services. Consequently, we need to give special attentions to producing correct answers of those requests, considering the scope of queries and user locations. In this paper, we propose an approach of mobile query processing when the users location moves from one Base Station to another and the queries cross multi-cells. The efficiency of our proposed approach is presented by giving some examples and performance evaluations.
