    How to open a simm file

    I'm gradually starting to try things with my first ever android phone (19100) and I'm starting to backup or trying to backup with KIES. I've been successful with contacts but i can't find anything to open my memo backups (simm files) on windows. When I try to open the files I'm offered 4 options, Irfanview, Word, word pad, or adobe reader, none of them work. What am I doing wrong?
    and of course as always thank you guys!

    You can try downloading a program called Notepad++ and see if it will read the files. None of the programs listed support the file format I imagine. I can't promise Notepad++ will either, but you could be in luck.

    Instead of using the stock memo program, I would find something else for future use. I use InkPad Notepad - Notes - To do which has worked out very well for me. You can then back your notes up to your SD Card. I also paid to sync them online. While I normally would not do this, I had a near heart attack experience here recently. I backed up my SC Card on my computer. Went in to storage on my phone and somehow managed to unmount and erase my external SD card. Luckily it was not two seconds after I backed it up, so I was safe. But I need to keep those notes handy, they have useful information that I can't ever seem to remember.

    Evernote I think is one of the more popular ones.

    If using Notepad++ to read the files does not work, let me know and I will continue the search.
