    This is the stupidest feature I can think of! I need this rubbish disabled as i constantly change volume when on SMS screen. I can see how this would be useful for old people that cant read small text or are constantly fiddling with the text size, but its useless and INFURIATING for me!

    Open the messages app. Go to settings. There's a option to resize text with volume buttons u need to un-check. Whenever u do so it'll stay at the size u left it before u unchecked it.

    This is one of those things I really hate about Samsung. Can't stand this feature but it seems that if I turn it off, my text always returns to a default large font size. I want the smallest font possible on my phone.

    I also change my volume constantly so it was a really annoying feature seeing my text always getting bigger and smaller.

    That's odd. My text size stays the same as what I had it set to after turning off the volume button setting.

    Mine doesn't do that. I always have my font set to the smallest size. I just went and turned off the option to change font size with volume keys and it stayed small.

    never noticed that happening, but then, the OEM message app is useless for me.

    I switched to Go SMS Pro

    Text Size? LARGE and leave it that way. i hate to pull out my bifocals every time a message comes in.

    You young whipper snappers just don't appreciate what you have with young eyeballs. 65 years ago, I could real that small print too..... 65 years from now, none of you will be able to read that ridiculously small print. And that is a God Given Promise.... Nature don't lie.

    This issue is back on the Galaxy S6 and the Messages app, with no way of disabling the volume rockers from changing the text size. I've scoured the Options interface and found nothing.

    Mine worked correctly on my Note 2 on 4.3 also.

    It matched the font size I had on my phone.

    Did you check your settings in the messaging app?

    I officially love Android Central. This was driving me nuts too. Why this would be on at default I do not know. "Hey Samsung team! Now that you've disabled the bleeps and bloops of the past, can you find something else that people don't want set by default? How about putting little pictures of planes and cars in front of the text messages bubbles? And increasing the font with the volume rocker?"

    This sucks. I'm on the Galaxy S6 active and they've completely removed the option to not have the font size change with the volume key. Sucks too because I really like the text messaging app but looks like I'm going to have to download the mySMS app or Textra to get what I want. I didn't realize how much I use the volume keys when I'm in the middle of texting, or if I'm texting and talking to someone at the same time. Stop. doing. stupid. stuff. Samsung! Just changing things for the sake of changing things sometimes.

    This drives me crazy. I design user interfaces for a living, and this is one of worst, most poorly thought out features I've encountered in my entire career.

    Anyhow, I digress. To turn this off on Android 5 (S5, S6, etc.):
    1. Go to the messages App.
    2. Tap the menu in the upper right (3 vertical dots).
    3. Tap Settings.
    4. Tap Display.
    5. Uncheck the checkbox next to "Change font size".

    Someone asked about getting the font size right after turning this off. You can change the font size through the settings even if you disable changing it with the volume button. In Android 5, go to the 3 dot menu, tap Font size, and pick the size you want. Not sure exactly where this is in Android 4, but it's there somewhere.

    Samsung, if you're listening: Worst feature ever. EVER.

    I have an S7 Edge and turning this off was one of the first things I did, but my work have just given me a J5 and I can't find this feature switch anywhere.

    Anyone know how to do this on a J5?
