Enlarge the font size of SMS messages and contacts, they are really tiny!
Increase font size in contact and sms
Provide an option for viewing details in a larger font.
Still using android, but really want to go to windows if I could increase the font size. Please add this option and you will at least one new customer and I am sure many more!
Hope to see application features to allow users to enlarge the font size of SMS Text. It will benefit the elderly users.
The sms fonts are too small to read, an update should be provided ASAP for increasing the fonts size at least in the sms application.
The ability to increase the font size across the UI would be fantastic. It can be difficult to read in the current state.
The phone numbers in Contacts are unreadable (especially in daylight)
Allow user to adjust size of font used in messaging hub
This feature is now available in Windows Phone 8.

@Wayian: I stand corrected. Microsoft has decided to unify the WP8 forum with the WP7.5 forum.
However, this idea originated in the time of WP7.5 and was aiming at WP7.8. I don’t think it is fair to say “We’ve implemented this feature in WP8, go and buy yourself a new smartphone if you want to enlarge the text of your SMS and contacts”.
@Cosmin Petrenciuc oh I did not realize that, I thought I was for general WPOS.
I cannot read my text messages as the text is so small.
Why cannot it be altered, this is crazy.
I am going to have to swap to a more normal phone.
What a shame, this is such a basic thing.

@Waiyan The setting you are describing is available in WP8. This forum is dedicated to WP 7.5. This setting was not made available in WP7.8.
So for everyone posting and voting on this. You can increase the font size by going to settings and ease of access. But keep in mind it changes the size of the text in emails and the lock-screen too not just texts messages and contacts.
increase font size, Please
Cannot increase the size of text - what a shambles, Never will I buy a windows or Nokia phone again. I cant believe so many bright people can be so dumb.
usureros aumenten el tamaño de las fuentes y los numeros de contacto, descarados.
We need this function also in WP7.8
why is it not possible to delete numerous texts at once and to enlarge the font for texts?? Surely not too much to ask!

I only wear my glasser for reading so have to put them on as cannot see the message , this is very inconvenient and an option to increase the text size would help.
I luckily borrowed a Windows Phone for a few weeks, my conclusion is clear. Every time I will buy a phone, somebody has to show me how to set font and colors to my liking, otherwise i will not buy.
For the foreseeable future i will stay wide away from a windows phone !!

Enlarge the font size of SMS messages!!!!!
Not being able to change the font size. That's simply ridiculous!
I have nothing more to add to the ongoing complaints about Nokia Lumia or any make/model that runs 7.8. The font is ridiculously small and once my contract is up I will never touch another windows phone. Just horrible compared to what androids and iPhones can do.
Even apps are useless. I need one for my banking but all they have is IPhone, Android and the new Blackberry app. Nothing for Windows. I... among millions feel left out in the cold. :(.
Very disappointed in Microsoft and feel sick being stuck with my phone for another 2.5 years....but don't think I can hold on that long. Will wait until my buy out has gone down and will get a Samsung.
The other comment I will make is, no doubt Microsoft could fix this but they will assume that people will just buy something with their latest operating system, good luck with that assumption, we do have options.
This font size problem is enough for me to go back to android, well done Microsoft, shame about people on a plan. I like the Lumia 800 but unless you can go on android I think I will go back to Samsung, the other thing I hate is Zune why can you not just transfer music from windows media player?
Please enable the enlargement of the fonts on the text messages.
