Hi, it is not possible to increase the quality of the video by increasing the resolution. (However you can decrease it).

lov_hacker, you need to buy a mobile phone with capability of capturing videos with high resolution, if you really want to increase the quality !

Also, quick time is a good player to play 3GP files

Just answered this question yesterday:

Basically, no, you cannot improve the quality of a poor quality video.
Converting them will only change the codec they are encoded with, compression ratio etc.

This could:

Decrease/Not Change the quality
Increase/Decrease the file size

To get a better quality video you would have to obtain a copy of the original video (e.g. avi file) before it was converted to .3gp format and encode that at a higher quality level.

Sorry, I know this is probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but sometimes the answer is: "It's not possible"

Here is some free software anyway that can convert your 3gp files to avi

3GP converter guides:
It supports converting between 3GP, AVI, MPEG, WMV, etc. If you'd like to play using QT, you might as well convert to MP4.
