    Default Text message font size randomly changing?

    Is anyone else's font size randomly dropping to medium in text messaging?

    Use pinch zoom.

    Yes, this seems to be a bug. The size of the font seems to change randomly. Not sure what the trigger point for the change is though.

    This doesn't seem to be an error, just a feature that hasn't been talked about. Since no one knows about it people are pinching and zomming text without knowing. This is acctually pretty cool. I don't know why this phone isn't talked about more!!

    Exactly. People don't know this feature exists... I am pretty sure it is just accidental user error in most all cases.

    It is extremely cool and long overdue. And there are already other threads on this.

    I know it exists and it's not accidental. I close a text and it's one size, open it again later, different size.

    Definitely a bug, if you haven't experienced, be glad I guess.

    I have experienced it multiple times. Even if I "accidentally" zoom it to be smaller, I press the menu key and change the font size to medium, but it does nothing. I even change it under display, and still nothing. I have to restart my phone in order for the settings to work right again.

    I knew about the pinch to zoom features. But as the others have said it isn't that. Irritating.

    I currently experience the font on my text messaging changing on its own on my HTC ONE X. Does anyone know how stop this from happening? Thanks!

    it happens on its own all the time so it must be a bug.

    A two-finger "pinch" zoom should resize the text again. I use pinch "out" to restore larger text.

    +1 It does it constantly without me changing it. Very annoying!

    I've been having this issue also. Clearly a bug. The timing is definitely random. The thing is, if I fix it with the pinch zoom, it ALWAYS ends up slingshoting the other direction within a day's time. Other than wait for it to fix itself, I haven't found much to do with it.

    This is definitely a bug, and pinch zoom isn't an acceptable nor permanent fix. I'm a big fan of the font size being tiny in my text messages. I get to see more of the conversation all at once, and it makes it difficult for other people to be nosy and read my sh*t.

    I really hope this gets addressed and corrected in the next update. It seems like such an amateur oversight.

    I noticed it only happens if you go to a message thread via the notification bar. To fix, while in the message thread(not the thread list) . Press the multitasking button and swipe up. Then enter text messaging like normal

    i just called sprint about this. im having the same issue with my htc 4g lte. they couldnt find a fix so they had me call htc at 866-449-8358. the solution ive gotten so far was to clear the cache in my text messages. so far it has worked for me. they said if that didnt work to try putting my phone is safe mode to see if one of my apps caused the problem. so far so good on clearing the cache. hopefully my phone doesnt revert back to changing font size.

    i also had my font "randomly" change and one day i made it go small again after trying everything! if you are in the text message (with the "Enter message" box, try increasing or decreasing the text using the volume button. on the samsung galaxy s II it's the button on the left. i was listening to music one day while trying to text and viola! the text went all the way from tiny to gigantic. but you have to be IN the text messaging mode, otherwise you are changing just the volume!! i hope this helps you. it dang near drove me nuts. happy new year

    1. go to setttings.
    2. app manager, scroll to your right until you find ALL
    3.scroll down to tex message
    4. Clear your data and cache
    5. Restart your phone.

    good luck

    Hi, on Samsung Galaxy s 4 go to Messaging; make sure you in main menu of Messaging where all contacts are listed; press menu button then press Settings; scroll down to Display section under "Use the volume key (Change text size using the volume key)" remove mark in the box.
    Or use volume key.
    Lots of people accidentally turn on that future without knowing that, like my wife.
