Does it support m4a (itunes plus format) files natively? These are drm free files from the itunes store but apple have changed the tag data so its not a standard m4a format. SE phones support them natively and Nokia appear to support them for mac os users as the Nokia Media transfer app converts the tag data, there are third party convertors for S60 but native support. I use itunes as my Music library as I also have an ipod for home/car use and the 6120c as my smaller capacity travelling music player. Why does Nokia assume that everybody using WXP/Vista uses the Windows Media Player! Please give me a simple media transfer app that supports all known codecs....

Did you know that you can click on the various columns in the Music Manager to order them? Click Album, Title, Artist, etc. This eliminates the hunting.

No gapless playback - horse manure.

All Nokias s60 3rd edition mobiles play eAAC+ (.m4a) files without the Itunes drm.

Headphones make the biggest difference

The sound quality of the N81 is really, really good. It depends so much on headphones. I was using my old Sennheiser PX200s leftover from my N91 days on them, but when they broke I bought a $150US pair of Shure in-ear headphones (E3G). Wow, amazing sound. (By the way, the E3G headphones are for "gaming and music", so a perfect fit for N81...must have come out originally for Sony PSP)

Is there anyway to define between music tracks and ringtones that are mp3. It seem that when going into the music library it will find anything no matter where it is stored on the phone

Played Gameboy Advance through emulator beautifully.
I'm hoping it can play PSP games.
