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

Yes si very small
This is really a nuisance. Great phone (beautiful and smart) the Lumia 800 but I'm unable to read anything in less than bright light and steady phone and forget cool colors like red. I don't understand why Microsoft doesn't say something about this... they miss the chance with the W7.8 and still nothing. Is there a good reason for not being able to change font size? Gosh!!

I am stuck in a 2 year contract with a mobile phone that is next to useless dur to the font size being far too small for my eyesight. Why have Nokia gone backwards by failing to add this basic need to this phone. Forget all the technology and extras, give us the basic requirements!!!!!!!
I agree on this one. With a nice color (like red) the fonts can't be read. Please Microsoft, help us
I bought to my wife a Lumia 800 and she can not read de contacts name and numbers, the Font size is really tine, we need to change it size

It doesn't matter it has been done in WP8. We are asking for this feature in WP7.8.
This has already been done on the new WP8 update.
Its in settings->ease of access.
It really is the only thing missing from this phone. My dad is in his 50s and needs to put his reading glasses on to look at messages. Please, even if its just 2 or 3 different sizes that you can change.

for contact you can download free app. kontaktlupe, it makes big kontacts but sms or other still need to have some application, something like "big louncher" that is only for androids:( i am young, my eyes is good but there are days when i need big letter too.....
no user experience valued by Window phone software designers - certain phone text/numbers are too small to read!, horrible architect at Window phone, at the same time some of those text are super big, for what? Is Microsoft a tech giant, want to hear user experience? are they dump not doing any thing for this?, this make chase away from all future Window phone versions, horrible experience when got locked with tiny font size.
and phone numbers in contacts. Way too small.
Totally agree. This is really a shame in this age of technology. MS, please provide an update ASAP!

My eye sight is weak,so I advice all smartphone user don t ever think of buying Nokia lumia 60 due to not possible to change font size.
The font size is too small to read text messages easily. Either the ability to re-size the font for text messages as a setting or at least the ability to pinch/zoom in the text messaging screen would make my lumia 800 a keeper... if not i'm back to an iphone
Just installed WP 7.8 on my Lumia 800 and I'm quite disappointed that despite all the improvements the font size can stil not be adjusted.
As others have already mentioned this would be especially helpful for messages and contact details.
If it can be done in WP 8 it should also be possible in WP 7.8 and I hope for a new update soon.
Judging from other threads it seems this request is quite common and out there for about 3 years now.
Please allow users to select larger font size on windows 7.8 operating system when accessing apps such as txt messages and the contacts details, particularly contacts details. I have had to change the colour several times now to try and find a colour that allows me to read this tiny print with more ease. Unfortunately this now means that my phone theme colour is a shade of gold!
Surely it must be possible for microsoft to include this option in its next software upgrade. Having researched this problem on the web it appears to be something that lots of users are asking for. All of microsofts other software products have the facility for users to select their own preferred font when reading and writing.
Apart from this I think that the Nokia Lumia 800 using windows software is great.
Shame on you Microsoft !
