It may depend on your phone as well.  I have a Nokia 6265i that can play 3GP
files, but no matter what aspect ratio I use when I encode (4:3, 16:9, etc)
it always fills the same amount of my screen.  It's a limitation of the
phone itself.

Do you have any videos that actually DO fill the screen?  Perhaps you can
open them up and check their size/resolution/bitrate  parameters and see if
you can get your converter program to match them.
