VMG files are used on several mobile platforms (for example Nokia/Symbian and non-Android Samsung phones) to backup and export SMS messages. With VMG Converter you can easily view and import plain text SMS messages exported from your old phone in .VMG or .VMSG files into Android SMS storage.

FREE VERSION - IMPORTS MAX. 200 MESSAGES AT ONCE. Get the Unlocker to remove this limitation and ads. Get the VMG Converter Unlocker here:

"It really works. Thanks for helping me. I suggest for all - must try. Works wonderful!" (5 stars)

"Best app I have tried many things to get my Nokia messages to my new Samsung phone. Every other option was long, frustating and mostly didn't even work. I was not hopeful that even this would work. But magically it did.." (5 stars)

"Thank you! Worked very well to import vmg messages to my Samsung Galaxy S4 on Android 4.4 KitKat! I've search alot to find a solution to import SMS messages from Samsung Phone with Bada operating system. Unfortunately Kies application doesn't import SMS mesages although this is a general phone user need. Anyway, thank you!" (5 stars)

We add support for new VMG files. VMG files come in many different flavors. If VMG Converter cannot parse your messages, the message file format is not (yet) supported. Do not panic, just send email to [email protected]. We greatly appreciate your feedback and WILL do our best to help you out.


When importing to Android 4.4+, you must accept to change the default messaging app to VMG Converter temporarily. Afterwards, you MUST accept to change it back when asked, otherwise you won't be able to receive and send messages on your phone.

Messages ARRIVING DURING IMPORT may a) pass to inbox unnoticed or b) not make it to inbox at all depending on various phone manufacturer specific implementations. At this time, the only way to prevent incoming SMS loss from happening is to turn on the AIRPLANE MODE before importing to make sure no SMS arrive during the import process.

How to export VMG files from a Nokia Symbian phone?
Read here:

How to use:

1. Export SMS messages to *.VMG files (eg. PC Suite is fine)
2. Copy the *.VMG files to your Android phone, eg. via USB.
3. Start VMG Converter.
4. Select the location of VMG Files.
5. Message listing appears shortly.
6. Select the messages you want to import and press "Import".
7. Messages now appear in the Android message box.

TROUBLESHOOTING (also read "Known issues" below)

1. Crashes while reading in message files

Out of memory errors occur with large amount of files/messages. Report these crashes to us, but as a quick remedy you should try to divide your files into smaller subsets.

2. Wrong time zone

If the time is off by hours in the message list, the VMG files may have their time in some other time zone than UTC. Change the time zone in settings to match the time zone in your VMG files and reload the message list.

3. Message thread time and date is the import time and date

If the time is set to import date and time in your message inbox after import, turn on "Refresh threads" setting to update conversation thread date, remove previous imported messages and then do the import again.

4. All messages have the same (wrong) date and time

You may be affected by a PC Suite bug that causes message original date to be the export date. VMG Converter can in some cases circumvent this by reading message date from the file name. Turn on the option from settings and refresh the message list.

5. Messages not appearing after import when using Hangouts

VMG Converter DOES NOT WORK with Hangouts. Switch to default Messaging app.


- Possible loss of incoming messages while importing: turn on the airplane mode while importing.

- Viewing and importing MMS or vCard is NOT supported yet.
