I have an iphone 3S 32GB. Can somebody tell me how to make the text font a little bigger?I find it difficult to read the current text fonts as they are very small - i'm not sure if this is possible as i dont see it in the settings - i only see font size settings for Mails but not for text messages
Thanks to help.

    Hi there,

    Sure you can!

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Large Text

    This changes the text within contacts, mail, messages and notes.

    Under Accessibility - i dont see any seetings for fonts. it only shows the following options:
    Voice Over
    Zoom
    White on Black
    Mono Audio
    Speak Auto-text
    Triple-click home

    What version of the iOS are you running? The Text size option was only added in iOS 4.

    I got the 3.1.2 (7D11) - I'm afraid to upgrade to version 4 as I see a lot of complains when they upgraded their iphones to ver.4

    Another question --- i ask a friend of mine in the U.S. to buy this iphone 3S32GB and upon receipt there is a small note "Not to upgrade the iphone as it will lose its unlock features...does this mean i should not upgrade to Ver.4?

    Thanks

    What that means is that the device was jailbroken to allow it to be used on other networks. iPhones purchased in the US are carrier locked to the AT&T network. If you upgrade the iOS now, your phone revert to its original lock to AT&T.

    Another thing to bear in mind is that jailbraking voids your warranty. And furthermore, the warranty can only be excercised in the country of purchase.
