While running my application(MIDlet) in my NOKIA 6600, I want to switch over to other native application like voice recorder, media player etc, without closing my application. (ie, my application would have been running in background ).Is it possible with J2ME???

As I answered in another message, the Nokia 6600 uses the multi-tasking Symbian operating system, and hence you can switch between applications and run several applications (e.g. a MIDlet and a native application, or two MIDlets) at the same time.
To switch between applications on a Nokia 6600, hold down the Application key (the one on the left with the strange blue icon) until icons for the active applications appear on the left of the screen. Using the joystick, scroll to the application you want to switch to, and click to select it. (You can also kill an application this way, by scrolling to it and pressing the 'C' key).
I agree. Here's the link:
