    Is there a way to make the fonts on the Aria larger ? I thought maybe through Accessibility but that's grayed out.


    Thanks

    Not just for texting, looking for overall larger font.

    You can try LCDDensity. I have mine set at 170 dpi and that makes all things a little bigger. I would really like it at 180 dpi but then some programs and text boxes do not work right. A dpi of 160 is the factory default, the bigger the number the bigger the text. If you find one you are happy with and you are rooted you can change it permanently by editing /system/build.prop. Otherwise the program works very well for free. Oh yeah, you need to have a rooted phone for this to work.

    I doubt you will find something that is, across the board, bigger font on all phone functions.

    Yes, LCDDensity will do this as I stated above. It changes the whole screen dpi making Everything smaller Or bigger. Try it out and see for yourself.

    OK, but you have to root the phone...

    I tried LCDDEnsity but i could not get it to work. When i set it to 170 dpi and hit apply nothing happened. It said it was still at 160. When i first started the app it did ask for SU permission which i said yes.. :thinking:

    If you are rooted and everything works it should do a soft reboot after you hit apply. So you would see the htc logo etc... then your desktop should load with the new settings. Are you running a stock aria config or what? I am now up to 172 dpi which works good for the Aria.
