If you go ahead and make an NBF backup of your phone's data (NOT AN NBU) and then open it with NbuExplorer it will successfully parse your SMSs although your contacts will only be visible as VCF files (not a single big database).
Also, (and I assume that's because of the first problem) you don't see the name of the sender next to an SMS you've received, you just see the number!

    Yes vcf files are not parsed from NBF as contacts. I still don't have enough NBF sample backup files.

    I have the exact same issue, and I'm willing to give you as many samples as you want if you think that could help.

    Do you need them to have specific features or anything?

    If all contacts in backup are stored before messages and have vcf extension, then it should work now in version 2.6. Please try it. If you have some sample data which you believe contain more information than NbuExplorer can see & extract do not hesitate to contact me via email (see readme file or about application dialog).

    Works like a charm now, but I just found another bug. I'll post it in the bugs section :) Thank you very much for your work and support!
