Current version: 0.92 (updated 17/07/2012)

Programming language: JAVA

Update 22/09/2015: Regarding to the growing demand concerning an update, I am back to work for a new version! The new version should bring a new powerful VMG engine that will be more robust and easy to update. Support for UTF-8 and UTF-16 will be added (arabic, syrian, chinese, indian…). Stability and export improvement are also planned. Stay tunned!

Update 1/07/2014: I’m really sorry to announce that I haven’t found enough time to continue the development of this software since the last version. I can’t continue to promise that I’ll release an update as I’m busy with other projects and my studies for 2 years right now.  Thanks for all your emails, your comments and your donations though!

Update 23/01/2013: I didn’t forget about the VMG reader development! Currently passing some exams, I can’t respond to all your mail, and update the application for 2 weeks from now. But I promise, for the next version: Chinese characters support, bugfix about cleaning bad characters of exported .csv, compatibility with Android importation software, support of all-messages-in-one-vmg features, and much more!
Stay connected, and thanks to all people that kindly donated for this work!

Update 15/8/2012: I know there are compatibility issues with the Samsung CORBY vmg’s. IF YOU HAVE ONE, PLEASE CONTACT ME (comment or mail)

Description

The Owl VMG Reader is a simple software that allow you to read VMG file. This software has been designed to read SMS backup of the Samsung BADA’s operating system. It has been tested on a Samsung WAVE (GT-S8500) and Samsung WAVE II (GT-8530) and might work on other BADA’s GSM based.

Notes:

  • NB: You must have Java Runtime! Download Java Runtime
  • Currently, I’m a student. If you enjoy my softwares, please consider donating, for a beer, a meal, or maybe more if you wish!
  • If your smartphone generate only one BIG vmg that contains all your sms, use the following software to split your vmg into multiple vmg files:  SplitFatVMG.zip (1210 downloads)

How-to:

Step 1: How to get your SMS from the phone (under the *.vmg extension)

1. Be sure the you have a SD card with some space (around 6-7Mbits depending of the amount of messages)

2. Go in your message application, touch the three dots “” on the down of the screen

3. Touch “Folder View” or something like that.

4. Touch the three dots “…” again -> “Back up from phone to memory Card”

5. Now, you can select SMSs you want to save, and if you want to save them all, just touch “Select All”

6. Touch “Save messages…” button in the down-left corner

Step 2: Extract data from your VMG files

Now, all your SMS are stored on your memory card, and each SMS is in a file like “PhoneNumber_SOMETEXT.vmg”.

1. Start the software

2. Open VMGs with it

3. Export using “Tools->Export” menu

That’s all, I hope that it’s clear :). Don’t hesitate to send me your bugs or your suggestion to improve this software! And If you like it, please donate, or simply let me a little  message in comments! Regards,

v. 0.6 (23/01/2012) - Thanks to harshit and Benjamin V. for their bug reports!

-Before, you can export only 400 sms. Now,
 you can export up to 10000 sms!

 Now, there will be available when you select all your VMGs.

  1. Bonjour,

    je viens vers car ma mère a un Nokia 2690 et elle vient d’avoir un iPhone 3Gs.

    Elle voudrais passer ces sms de son Nokia (format : VMG) vers son iPhone.

    Avec votre soft, est-t-il possible de faire la conversion?

    Cordialement.

    1. Bonjour Emmanuel,

      Tout d’abord, est ce que vous avez pu récuperer les SMS de votre nokia au format VMG?
      Après je pense que si votre téléphone est “jailbreaké” (quelques recherches sur Google devrait vous donner des infos à ce sujet), je peux éventuellement voir pour exporter les SMS au format VMG dans un format lisible sur l’iphone. En effet, avec le logiciel qui va bien (iExplorer de mémoire), il est possible d’acceder au fichier sms.db qui contient l’ensemble des SMS contenu dans l’iphone.

      Donc pour répondre à votre question, non, mon logiciel n’est pas dans l’état actuel, capable de faire cela, mais je peux eventuellement l’implémenter si vous me fournissez une dizaine de SMS au format VMG que je puisse exploiter.

      Amicalement, LB

    1. Hello!

      What kind of cell phone are you using? I can fix the problem if you send me 3-4 VMGs (in .zip format) to my email. (manzhack AT gmail DOT com)
      Thank you for your interest!

      Kindest regards

    1. Hi lilsilence!

      Sure, just can you send me some VMGS file and I will do the job 😉
      Send a least of 10 VMGs by email and I will see what can I do!

  2. Hi there! Is there any possibility of making a reader for Samsung S3350? I dowloaded owl reader but it just can’t open in my PC…
    Tks a lot

  3. Bonjour,

    J’ai mis mes messages de mon Samsung Wave 723 à mon pc sous format vmg, et le Merge’em all ne marche pas, par contre si je les ouvre 1 par 1 le “process” fonctionne. Le probleme est que j’ai 998 messages à faire, donc je vais comme tu dis plus t’envoyer quelques messages à ton adresse mail pour que tu essaies s’il te plait =)

    Merci d’avance

    1. Bonjour Benjamin,

      En effet, je viens de me rendre compte que j’ai limité la taille maximale de SMS “mergeable” à 400, limite que je m’était fixé afin de ne pas saturer la mémoire!
      Je change donc le programme pour qu’il soit capable de supporter bien plus que 400 sms 😉

      Cordialement

  4. Tout d’abord bonjour et merci pour ce petit logiciel très pratique =) .

    J’aimerais savoir s’il est possible de classer les messages par date et heure du messages lorsqu’on en ouvre plusieurs en meme temps?

    merci d’avance ! ^^

    1. Bonjour et merci pour votre interet!
      Le logiciel trie automatiquement les messages par arrivée chronologique. En cliquant sur “show sms” vous pourrez alors voir l’ensemble des discussion, et avec les détails de la date à chaque fois. Est-ce bien ça que vous recherchez?

  5. Mais de rien ce logiciel est vraiment simple et pratique félicitations =) .

    A vrai dire, pas vraiment… par exemple, si j’ouvre 200 sms en meme temps, les messages ne se suivent pas du tout de maniere chronologique. j’ai enregistré les messages sur ma carte mémoire de maniere un peu hasardeuse je pense, ou bien je ne sais pas d’où vient ce “désordre”.

    j’ai l”impression qu’ils se trient selon la date du fichier vmg qui contient le message, et non selon la date réelle où j’ai recu le message :/ Donc voila je cherchais a savoir s’il etait possible qu’ils se trient par rapport a la vraie date ou jai recu le message, et non celle ou j’ai déplacé le sms 🙂

    Desolé si ce n’est pas clair :S

    1. Oui en effet, j’avais remarqué que les sms possedaient deux types de dates. L’idéal serait que vous m’envoyer un screenshot de ce que vous obtenez avec le logiciel, avec si possible un zip avec quelques messages qui selon vous poserait probleme lors du traitement

  6. Bonjour, mon téléphone samsung Player Star 2 cassé, je réussi à sauvegarder mes textos et MMs sur la carte micro-Sd…afin de les transférer sur PC.. puis enfin les basculer sur mon nouveau téléphone. Soulagée de trouver votre programme je l’installe mais celui-ci plante dès que je veux l’ouvrir!!! De plus je viens de m’acheter le Samsung Galaxy Ace..ce téléphone n’arrive pas à ouvrir le format VMG des messages enregistrés sur la carte mémoire..donc impossible de les enregistrer ou même de les ouvrir. J’ai alors installée un convertisseur ( PDF Converter) qui bug également…auriez vous des suggestions à m’apporter? Par avance Merci et bonne journée. Frédérique

      1. Bonjour, Merci à vous pour votre réponse…en effet j’avais préalablement installé le Framwork…je me suis adressé en parallèle à une boutique de réparation mobile…le Player Star 2 est bien HS, en effet l’emplacement de la sim est grillé et comme il est greffé sur la carte mère du phone ça n’est pas changeable…en outre le réparateur a pu transféré mes sms sur mon nouveau téléphone mais pas les MMS…ai-je moyen de les transferer? Merci à vous et bonne journée

        1. Bonjour Frederique,

          Malheureusement, le format VMG ne peux contenir que du texte, et aucune image. Il est donc impossible de recuperer quelconque mms…
          Désolé,

          Cdlt,

  7. Hello,

    Your software is great!
    Can you send me the source file?
    Only for educational purpose 😉
    Write to my mail (silvethebest[at]yahoo[dot]it

    Thanks, TheZero.

  8. Bonjour,
    Au moment de choisir sur quel dossier enregistrer les fichier je n’y arrive pas. Qu’es que c’est que c’ets que l’extension mvmg ? Je ne suis pas très douée en informatique et la je bloque.
    Merci.

  9. Bonjour Louisbob,

    j’ai installé votre logiciel sur windows 7, ainsi que .NET framework package.

    J’ai sélectionné 77 sms .vmg en provenance d’un téléphone NOKIA 6070; j’ai exécuté les étapes de merge et process, mais la fenêtre sms viewer ne contient pas de messages ( et pourtant le fichiers .mvmg contient mes messages, apres visualisation avec notepad)

    Est ce que vous pourriez m’aider s’il vous plait?

    Merci d’avance pour votre support.
    Cordialement,
    Orazio Pulvirenti

    1. Bonjour Orazio,

      Est il possible de m’envoyer quelques uns de vos sms au format VMG? Je crois que la version de ces fichiers est différente comparé aux Samsung. Cela me permettrait d’étendre la compatibilité de mon programme à d’autres modèles de portable.
      Vous pouvez m’envoyer un mail sur manzhack(AROBASE)gmail.com (remplacer Arobase par @)

      Amicalement,

  10. Hi,

    First of all, I’m thanking you for your hard work because I couldn’t find any suitable program that can read vmg format files here on the internet.

    Can you please help me with my problem since I’m not a programmer myself. I have .vmg file that comes from GT-E2152 samsung phone. Your software crashes when I run it.

    Attached in here is the vmg and mvmg file: http://www.mediafire.com/?b9d7l8r80y5gubw

    Truly grateful if you can help.

    1. Hi,

      I don’t know the Wave3 at all. Did you tried steps I gave in the description of my software?
      You need to get VMG files on the SDCard of your phone. Then, you will probably be able to use my software.

      Best regards,

  11. i want to transfer my messages from samsung corby pro having .vmg extension to android having file extension .txt cant transfer messages from .vmg to .txt help me out.

  12. Bonjour, j’ai téléchargé le logiciel, mais en ouvrant mon fichier VMG (337ko) je n’obtiens que la dernière ligne de la conversation … Comment puis-je faire pour tout récupérer? Merci

  13. This is when you realize the power of unix tools 😉 Formatting the SMS, sorting them by date, exporting to PDF in a single command line.

  14. Hello! I would like to thank you for your hard work and efforts into making this software!

    I seem to have a problem, however..
    my already-existing vmg files can’t be opened onto the reader.
    When I select “add file” or “add folder” nothing happens after I click “Open!”
    My texts are from the following:
    Nokia 6700s
    Nokia 5310 XpressMusic
    and Nokia (I think it is) 1680 classic

    Thank you so much! I appreciate your help!!

    1. Hi Jessie,

      Could you please send me a copy of your vmg(s), zipped using WinRAR or WinZIP, and send me to this mail adresse: manzhack (AT) gmail (DOT) com

      I will see what I can do for you 😉

      Regards

  15. hi i do not understand how to get messages in my memory card.I have nokia 5130 express music.I do not « … » button in my cell phone.Can you please help me.

    1. Hi,

      Please read the description: this software work only with cell phone that support VMGs file. Nokia isn’t supported by my software.
      Are you sure you can export your sms as VMG on your nokia? Check on google. But it seems that you can directly export your SMS as CSV file (openable with Microsoft Excel). See this thread: http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/PC-and-Mac-Software/Pc-Suite-how-to-export-two-or-more-sms-in-vmg-format/td-p/420628

      Regards,

  16. I am having Samsung Primo S5610. Now I have purchase Samsung Galaxy Ace duos. I want to transfer my all message from old phone to new one. Kindly guide me.

    Thanks

  17. Hi LouisB0b

    YOu made my day when I found your software. Thanks. I just have 1 problem. I downloaded your software and Java Runtime and installed Java Runtime. When I open your program, the default is Nokia Suite (don’t know why). I have to choose other software to open it with, but I honestly don’t know what. Please advise and thanks for your time and effort.

    1. Hi Jan,

      In fact, you don’t have to double click on VMG. But you need to import them INSIDE my software; To do that, simply start the program, and click on File->open.

      Does it work?

      Regards

  18. Hi,

    since the new bada2.0 version, wave 723E backs up messages into ONE huge vmg file. Owl reads the file, but only the first message appear. It is possible to read’em all ? 🙂

    Thanks!

    Xander

      1. Hello,

        first, thank you for your work on this programm. I have a Samsung Wave S-8500 and I want to backup its messages to drag the messages to a HTC One S.

        Your program is the only one I could find on the Internet, which can read Samsung VMG-Files.

        But like Xander Hyde I have Bada 2.0 and my Wave backs up messages into one vmg file.

        Can I send you my VMG file?

        Thx

          1. I send you the file by E-Mail. I adjust myself to wait for two weeks and if you are faster, it’s better.

            You are my only chance, that i get my old messages, so it’s not really bad if I have to wait.

            The only alternative to get my messages is, to copy them on my SIM-card and then copy them to my new smartphone. But there is only memory capacity for 20 messages.

            So to wait for your extraction of my messages is the easiest way for me to get them 🙂

  19. Bonjour Louisbob,
    Je n’arrive pas à ouvrir ton soft. Une fois dézippé, je ne sais pas quel fichier ouvrir…
    HELP ! Moi aussi j’ai des sms que je voudrais conserver.
    Merci de ton aide.

    i want to copy some text from my messages, but it doesn;t working..

    how can i copy some text from this software to ms-word??

  22. Salut LouisBob,

    J’ai copié mes messages sur une clef USB quand j’ai changé de téléphone; j’essaie de les importer dans The Owl VMG Reader mais quand je fais “Open” il ne se passe absolument rien.

    Une solution?

    Merci

    1. Bonjour,

      Désolé de la réponse tardive, votre message s’est glissé dans mes courriers indésirables!
      Donc pour vous répondre, il me faudrait quelques échantillons afin que je détermine le problème.

      Envoyez moi un fichier zippé de quelques VMG à l’adresse suivante: manzhack AROBASE gmail POINT com

      Merci de préciser le modèle de votre téléphone également.

      Bien cordialement

  23. Bonjour

    Tout d’abord une grand merci pour le développement de ton logiciel.
    J’ai une question concernant la sauvegarde “finale”.
    J’arrive à convertir mes SMS, je les vois dans la fenêtre mais je n’arrive pas à les enregistrer sur mon ordi autrement que sous excel, et ça devient illisible à ce moment là. Alors qu’ils sont très bien dans la fenêtre du logiciel. Et je n’arrive pas à faire de copier coller depuis ce même logiciel.

    Peux tu m’aider et m’indiquer comment faire?

    Merci beaucoup
    Laurent

    1. Bonjour,

      Alors oui il doit y avoir un bug avec l’exportation excel. Peux-tu m’envoyer le fichier excel de sortie?
      L’adresse email est manzhack AROBASE gmail.com (remplacer AROBASE par @, c’est pour eviter le spam)
      Sinon pour le copier-coller, il faut utiliser la combinaison de touche “CTRL” + “C” pour copier, et “CTRL” + “V” pour coller. Cela devrait fonctionner.

      Désolé pour le nombre de bug, il faut que je me replonge dans le code, chose a laquelle je m’attelerai après mes partiels.

      Bien cordialement

  24. Hi!

    Congratulations for the amazing program, I have a Samsung Star II Duos, and this was the only way to backup more than 600 messages that I had.

    I would just like to ask if you could add an algorithm to correct text in ISO-8859-1, because some characters, like “é”, “ç”, “€” aren’t converted in UTF-8.

    Thansk in advance!

    1. Yes, of course!

      Could you send me some VMG files with these characters?
      Send them to manzhack AT gmail.com
      I will add the algorithm next week, because I’m passing some exams right now.

      Best regards,

  25. Bonjour !
    J’ai deux PC sous Windows 7/64. Sur l’un Java fonctionne, mais pas sur l’autre… Quelle serait l’explication ?
    J’imagine qu’il faudrait d’autres infos pour répondre, mais lesquelles ?
    Merci pour votre travail !

  26. Salut,
    merci beaucoup pour ce petit programme bien utile ! ça fait plusieurs jours que je cherche à convertir mes sms en .vmg pour les charger sur mon nouveau téléphone android !!!

    Report :
    – lors du chargement des sms OUTBOX, il ne s’affiche pas dans la console mais sont bien chargés pourtant
    – clear text : OK pour les mise à la ligne mais pas pour les “é”, “à”, “ç”, etc… (remplacement de “=C3=Ax”)

    Je n’ai pas encore charger le fichier .csv obtenu mais je suppose que l’appli SMS Backup & Restore devrait suffire.

    merci à toi

  27. Hi,
    Your app works ok if you want to import ony one message.
    If you try multiple messages at once, either the buttons don’t work or it locks up?
    Any idea what might be causing this?
    Also the links on your website for older versions of the app, link only to the new version…
    Regards
    Stuart

    1. Hi Stuart,

      Yes, it seems to be a bug with the last version of TOVMG. As you suggested, I added links to the previous versions. Tell me if any of them is working fine.

      Best regards,

  28. Salut !
    Ton programme est vraiment super ! Seulement j’ai un problème j’ai enregistrer mes messages VMG de mon SAMSUNG WAVE II et quant j’ouvre le vmg avec l’application il n’y a que le dernier message qui s’affiche que dois-je faire ?
    Merci d’avance

  29. Hi, I was looking for this program to convert my messages from WAVE II to the note 3 and I found yours.

    The program you created works well, it reads the mvg file, the only problem is that it reads just the last message and not all the messages that are stored in it.
    Then I read the NOTE and it is written, in case of BIG VMG files, use “SplitFatVMG” program to split the messages, and that is great, since WAVE II merges them all into one single file.

    Problem is that I can’t download the program. It doesn’t let me.
    So, would you mind making that split fat vmg program available again?
    Thank you very much!

  30. I need some help with my mobile device.
    I have taken my messages backup from samsung c3322 mobile. they are stored in .vmg file format. and now i want to transfer these backup files to another samsung mobile. please help me in this.

  31. Hi LouisBob!!
    Congratulations for your program! Very good!
    I have downloaded it as I need to export my messages to my PC in a readable form. Your program functionality looks very smooth indeed, the thing is though, that it cannot “read” Greek characters!!! Therefore I need a little help here!
    Can you give me a piece of advice here?
    Looking forward to seeing your answer to my e-mail!
    I may need in a readable and printable form my messages in a court room, therefore it’s quite important to me!!
    Thank you in advance!!
    Eleni….

  32. hi Louisb0b,

    thank u for this useful program. but dosen’t support turkish character. for example I see “=C4=B1” instead of “ı” and “=C3=A7” instead of “ç” etc… if it’s possible to fix?

  33. Hi, I really hope you can help. Your program looks exactly what I need, but should it work OK on a Windows PC?
    I have the Java executables and OWL seems to run fine on the PC at first, but then it gets stuck.

    When I select “File”/”Open vmg files” in the main program, a new “Owl wizard opening” window opens and I can select files in either of the Inbox or Outbox panes.
    But when I click on the “Open!” button, nothing happens at all – that window stays open and nothing happens in the main program window.

    The reason I need to do this is that I have messages backed up from an old Simbian phone (which I no longer have) and no not have a Java based phone either.

    Can you help?

  34. Hi

    1. Hi,

      Sorry I have currently no time to update my software. I will let you know when I will be able to dig in the source code again.

      I apologize, thank you anyway for the interest you have in TOVMGR

  36. Hi LouisBob!!
    Congratulations for your program! Very good!
    I have downloaded it as I need to export my messages to my PC in a readable form. Your program functionality looks very smooth indeed, the thing is though, that it cannot “read” Greek characters!!! Therefore I need a little help here!
    Can you give me a piece of advice here?
    Looking forward to seeing your answer to my e-mail!
    I may need in a readable and printable form my messages in a court room, therefore it’s quite important to me!!
    Thank you in advance!!

  37. Bonjour,

    Merci pour ce logiciel, un ajout interssant serai d’ajouter dans la fonction export une compatibilité avec les formats de sms utilisé dans les téphones android.

  38. Bonjour,
    je n’ai pas réussi à ouvrir mon fichier vmsg. Et meme si je le change en vmg cela n’ouvre qu’un numero de tél et date/durée 00:00:00.
    J’ai sauvegardé bcp de textos, est-ce le problème?
    Sinon je peux vous informer que text-edit ouvre le vmsg mais donne qqchose d’assez complexe, meme si j’arrive à déchifrer les textos.
    Un grand merci et si ça marche vous m’aurez facilité la vie avec votre logiciel 🙂
    merci

    1. Bonjour,

      Oui, il subsiste quelques bugs dans le logiciel, mais je n’ai malheuereusement pas le temps de m’atteler à la tâche.
      N’hésitez pas à passer de temps en temps sur mon site il se pourrait que je sorte une version corrigée dans quelques temps.

      Cordialement,

  39. Hello, my hand has 7336 Total vmg file.It is going problems with the Turkish character I want to convert your program. If you can help I can send sample files. Thank you so much. God Bless you.

  40. Bonjour,
    Je voulais essayer votre logiciel mais je ne parviens pas à le télécharger.
    Je clique sur télécharger, cela ouvre un dossier zippé et je ne vois pas de fichier dont l’extension est .exe comme habituellement.
    Pouvez-vous m”indiquer comment faire ?
    Merci
    Magali
