The file format is most likely specific to your mobile phone. So you should refer to documentation for your mobile phone (and/or the manufacturer's web site) for potential clues.

If your mobile phone manufacturer has any companion PC software for your phone, that software might have an option to export the text messages to a readable text file.

Basically once the message has been received, how the phone wants to store it is completely up to the phone's software.
