Opening VNT files

Did your computer fail to open a VNT file? We explain what VNT files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your VNT files.

What is a VNT file?

The VNT file format was created by Sony Ericsson for its line of mobile handsets. Serving as mobile phone vnote data files, these .vnt files are plain text documents that are generated when a user stores notes, calendar details, to-do lists and so on in a supported Sony Ericsson mobile phone.

Notes is an application that was designed for Sony Ericsson mobile phones. This software can be used to create, open and edit these .vnt files. These files may also contain metadata details, which are associated with the plain text notes that were saved by the user in the .vnt files.

Although in plain text format, some of these .vnt files may be encoded with certain protocols that could prevent it from being viewed properly through the use of a standard text editing application for Windows like Notepad, or for Mac OS X like Apple TextEdit. Notes is recommended for opening these .vnt files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
