Default Increase system/phone wide font??

Is it possible to increase the system wide font on the Thunderbolt?...so things like calendar text is larger?

I downloaded Spare Parts, but this does not seem to work.

I changed the font on my Inc but I believe you have to be rooted to do so. If it's something like the calendar you need to change, I use one called Jorte. You can customize a lot of things with this calendar including font size and color.

Yes, you need to be rooted to change fonts. You can also change the LCD density (make screen smaller or bigger) if rooted. I use Jorte for one of my calendars and it's pretty impressive for a free app. I'd check it out if you're not into rooting

I vote for a OS update to allow global font changes
