With VMG Converter you can easily view and import plain text SMS messages exported from Windows Phone, Symbian or Samsung using .VMG / .VMSG / .MSG files - straight into Android SMS storage.

NEWS: MSG-files are now supported!

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

Windows Phone "Contacts+Message Backup" or "Transfer my data" backup files are supported.
Please note, that MMS is not supported yet (this means: no photo messages, no group messages).

We add support for new file formats. SMS backups 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.



1) 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.

2) Messages ARRIVING DURING IMPORT may not make it to inbox depending on various phone manufacturer specific implementations. Turn on the AIRPLANE MODE before importing to make sure no SMS arrive during the import process.

How to export VMG files from an older 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

Users of Android versions before 6.0/M may encounter this. 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.

It works very well ... But for a paid app, they should allow few more functionalities like sorting the messages on multiple parameters; deletions of duplicates, search feature etc...

I had to find a way to transfer all my old Samsung monte text sms to an Xperia. After copying them from my inbox to sd card on the Monte, I transferred them to Xperia via Bluetooth(just swap the sd card temporarily to your new phone if you have no pc or Bluetooth available). Worked perfectly with no issues. Thanks
