You can try handbrake.

What about 3gpwiz? It should be in the repos.
If your phone supports MP4, I would recommend avidemux. It has a nice gtk/qt interface and presets for different outputs . I use it regularly to convert videos and put it on my sony walkman/ treo.

Three good apps:

1. Avidemux2 (In the repositories if you added the Medibuntu Repo)
2. HandbrakeGUI ( http://handbrake.fr/?article=download )

These are the two I use the most. For .3gp handbrake will give you the easiest options as it supports profiles for phones.

Cheers

ffmpeg is a very powerful tool. I know it's a command-line app, and it's man page is huge, but you might find examples of good settings scattered around the net.

Here's an example I found immediately for 3gp encoding:

ffmpeg -i inputfile.avi -s qcif -vcodec h263 -acodec aac
-ac 1 -ar 8000 -r 25 -ab 32 -y outputfile.3gp
