If you install this http://symbianoggplay.sourceforge.net/S60V3.html on a Symbian s60v3 phone, such as Samsung i8510, you should be able to play FLAC files.

However, with the amount of memory they use and the sound quality that you will get from a phone you would be better off using a high bitrate MP3

hey thanks for the reply.
after doing lots of research i went and got me a sony-ericsson g900.
fairly cheap in a contract deal but with all i wanted: symbian uiq3 os that allows me to tweak all, syncs perfectly with my addressbook and agenda on my mac and has a great handwriting recognition (writing eg. sms is so nice and fast with it, beats everything else i know)
got me coreplayer that runs fine, and can smoothly play flac-files.
and alas! what a difference to shoddy mp3!! i love it!

AFAIK oggplay does not play flac. Coreplayer does, but it's not free. Like stated before, you're better off with a high reate mp3. Then use LCG Jukebox to play them, it has the best sound quality and the option to just play a folder, instead of fudging around with some library that need to be refreshed every time you put some new music on it and so on.

Gotta agree, audio hardware on any phone is crap. Not worth trying FLAC on there anyway.

Well i don't agree.
A battery last for only a few hours. There is litle reason to have memory wich last much longer on file playback time.

4Gig mem will give you 12-16 hour of playbak time.
when playing 1 hour a day (traveling to work) i have to update my flacs only every 2 weeks.

That the hardware is not fit to get the all of the flacs potential is apparently of no issue. : Most phones do support WAV

What supporting flac on you phone could mean is not having to keep 2 files on you disk for just 1 track.
