Convert AVI to 3gp with ffmpeg

Been playing around with this for a while and found several examples online none of which worked for me in first try, got it working with the following command.

ffmpeg -i [input.avi] -acodec libamr_nb -s 176x144 -ar 8000 -b 120000 -vcodec h263 -ab 10.2k -ac 1 [output.3gp]

Hello I am not a programmer but have the software version of ffmpeg. I just want to convert my AVI files to 3gp to play on my cell phone. How do I plug in this code you have provided?

Awesome! I successfully converted my .avi to .3g2. Sure beats trudging through pages of malware virus infested shareware freeware bloatware gui versions of converters.

Once again, thank you. This is EXACTLY what I needed!
