    June 14th, 2010 | 8:55 am

    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)

    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.

    September 12th, 2010 | 12:40 pm

    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!!! :)

    Thanks SO MUCH. This was DRIVING ME CRAZY. It kept changing at random. I tried all keyboard combinations and nothing but then it it would change again. Something was changing the size but I couldn’t figure it out. It was so large only about 10 words fit on the screen!

    May 5th, 2011 | 5:31 am

    I must have pushed on every button (except of course…), and tried every possible combination, crawled about a hundred times through the whole menu. Finally I did the right thing: I googled my problem and found your solution :-)

    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.
