No. The only mobile phone i know of that runs Linux is the Qtopia Greenphone
from Trolltech.

The price and the features is quite impressive, but the lack of a real
keypad is a big problem. Its nearly impossible to type on a touchscreen
without looking at it.

   There are lots of linux based mobile phones. If you want to run
linux on a S40/S60 mobile, you should know the hardware details of
those mobile phones (which is not possible). Moreover user's cannot
flash their mobile phones, except for Greenphone and another phone
coming up next year (Neo1973).

FWIW, you *can* flash an S40 (and probably most other cellphones
as well), if you know where to look for the right flash software.
People do it all the time in hopes that the new firmare will have
less bugs/more features...

Nevertheless, to actually write your own firmare for a
cellphone without knowing all the details of it's hardware
is pretty much impossible.

Hello ,

   You cannot flash mobiles like Nokia 6600 as a user. You have to go
to Nokia service center and get it flashed! Only for some high end
mobiles, Nokia is releasing the firmware update software, using which
we can update the phone firmware!
