A VMG file is a text format used by Nokia cell phones to store text message data, including the send and receive time, title header and body of the message. Because the VMG format is not common, the only program that can open the VMG format is the Nokia PC Suite. Although the Nokia PC Suite is primarily used to transfer files to and from Nokia phones, it can also display the information of VMG files in a readable format.
