What program you use to play 3gp? For Mplayer some libraries from medibuntu are necessary. To install them, first add this repository in /etc/apt/sources.list, i.e. if you have ubuntu 8.04:

deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ hardy free non-free
deb-src http://packages.medibuntu.org/ hardy free non-free

Then add key to the system and update the list of repositories:
wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Then update manager will suggest you to install the necessary libraries.

I added the repository in Intrepid with:

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

which I found here:
