Why is it so hard for makers to use a standard like Mpeg instead of some proprietary crapola..
Actually, 3gp is not proprietary to RIM and is the standard video format that most handset makers (Nokia, S-E, etc) are using (especially with non-PDA/smartphone type handsets), and as specified by by the Third Generation Partnership Project
3GP files are similar in structure to MPEG-4 (MP4) files, but have a number of key differences which significantly reduce file sizes thus reducing the bandwidth required for the transfer of media between 3G devices.
It may have been possible that the person you sent the video with a WM device had an older version OS.
