VNT File Extension

Have a problem opening a .VNT file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what VNT files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .VNT file type?

The .vnt extension is tied up with the vNote Message (VNT) file format and type. vNote is very similar to other simple data-exchange formats, like vCard and vCalendar/iCalendar. vNote is used by a large number of mobile devices of different makes (e.g., Sony Ericsson, Nokia) for sending and sharing notes/memos from the phone.

A .vnt file is a plaintext file that contains a vNote message or memo. The text data inside the file is structured and delimited by tags, while the actual message body is represented in the Quoted-Printable (QP) encoding. With QP, all characters outside the printable ASCII set are written as escape sequences: the "=" escape character followed by two hexadecimal digits. This allows to represent any character code from 0 to 255, which is sufficient for the UTF-8 (Unicode) character set normally used for vNote files.

Any VNT file can be directly opened with a text editor, however, due to the QP encoding, its payload message is human-unreadable and requires conversion. There are plenty of various online, standalone, and plugin-based tools for all platforms to convert the QP-encoded .vnt files into plain text, and vice versa.
