Download Free Cell Phone Videos (3gp) with Google

Do you want to download a bunch of free videos for your cellular phone? This technique will show you how to search google to find tons of open directories containing free cell phone videos. No P2P or torrents required. Start your collection from the open collections of others.


I know I beat this poor search technique to death; however, I always enjoy finding new uses for it.

This time we will be using a google search to find people’s open directories of 3gp videos. This is a common video format used to view video on cell phones.

Open Directories of 3gp files:

Specific Searches for 3gp files:

    Google: filetype:3gp inurl:3gp

    Now this search is not nearly as sexy as it brings in a ton of junk. However, this search casts your net wider. The magic here is the filetype and inurl filters telling google to only include these video files in your search. By leaving these filters in place, you can add more search terms to narrow your search.

    For example, to search 3gp video files that are associated with rock…

    Google: filetype:3gp inurl:3gp rock

If you don’t want to remember the search format, just bookmark this page and visit as often as you wish.
