    before my 14 day change your mind period is up. Simple reason is because my eyesight cannot cope with the tiny text. Even with wearing my reading glasses i still felt strained. Such a great phone let down by something so easily fixable. I tried the Spare Parts app but it only works with some functions. I know countless other people have had this problem.

    I'm sure if you go into the menu you can increase the size of the text.

    It seems that you cannot do that at all, the shop assistant phoned his tech guy to verify it and the tech guy told him there was nothing could be done. Do a search on these forums for text size problems and you will see a lot of annoyed people.

    Sorry for taking a while to reply, the size of the text was not just an issue for me in the messaging area, it seemed to be right across the phone.

    Download an app called spare parts that is available from the market. It lets you increase font size as well as a whole host of other neat things.:)

    I mentioned that i already tried that in the opening post, tis just one of those things. Hopefully someone on the Android dev team takes notice and does something about it.

    I doubt they have time to lurk in every little forum in every nook and cranny of the WWW. If you want it noticed, report it to HTC and/or on android mailing lists. Forums like these are only made by fans for fans.
