Kodak has filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission (ITC).
It alleges the iPhone and Blackberry use technology for previewing pictures that infringe Kodak patents.
It has also filed two separate suits against Apple that claim infringements of patents relating to digital cameras and certain computer processes.
Kodak has asked the ITC to bar both firms from shipping the phones and has asked for undisclosed monetary damages.
RIM and Apple declined to comment.
"We've had discussions for years with both companies in an attempt to resolve this issue amicably, and we have not been able to reach a satisfactory agreement," said Laura Quatela, chief intellectual property officer at Kodak.
"In light of that, we are taking this action to ensure that we protect the interests of our shareholders and the existing licensees of our technology."
