    Comment by kelly bonne — June 10, 2010

  • Thank you!!! How simple :) Mine went very tiny. Can’t think on anything I did. Also, now I can read texts without my glasses on by enlarging them with the volume button! I have also found that you can scroll up and down using the volume buttons instead of using your finger on the screen and accidently opening or selecting things you don’t want to (contact list for example)

    Comment by Kathy — June 14, 2010

  • WOW! Thank you so much! This really worked!! I had spent a long time trying to figure out why my font was so small!! I had a really hard time reading my messages. I must of pressed the volume button without know! Thanks!!!!!!!

    Comment by Joyce — September 4, 2010

  • We’ll that’s intutive – Who comes up with these menus and functions? Duh, seems like message settings would be a good place, not a button on the side of the phone. Settings are often not in the logical places or are very isolated from where you would think they would or should be.

    Samsung needs to ensure these product designers are not high on drugs when they let then spec these phones out.

    Comment by Wolly Worm — September 6, 2010

  • Thank you so much, it helped out very much. I think when i went to unlock the phone i hit the volume key by accident. But thenk you so much!!! :)

    Comment by Stephanie — September 12, 2010

  • It’s pretty bad when at&t don’t even know how to work their own phone, thanks again!!

    Comment by Stephanie — September 12, 2010

  • WOW, thanks so much. My font got so small I could barely read it. I called their help desk and no one had a clue. They sent me over to tech service and no one had a clue. Guess if you want a job done right gotta do it yourself! Thanks for helping out a ton of people.

    Comment by Mac — April 7, 2011

  • Please help me. :S

  • What?

    Comment by AT&T Cell Phones — June 24, 2011

  • What’s your problem?

    Comment by AT&T Cell Phones — June 24, 2011

  • When you receive the photo message, you need to save it your phone, then you can see it. If not, you need to ask your frineds send the pictures with SMS message to you.
