    open a email then use the volume control to decrease or increase size, it works on my Samsung 4, give it a go.

    I want big font on my text messages but this does not work on my Xperia Z5 Compact. If I download another messaging app then it does not show the number of unread messages as a notification badge - which is a bit pointless if you don't hear messages arrive.

    Can anyone offer the solution? I want to know how many messages I have AND I want to be able to read them - not too much to ask but at the moment it looks like my choice is one or the other

    Thank you! The font on my text messages went big last night and for the life of me, I couldn't figure it out. I searched and found one spot where they said to "just pinch" the text, tried that and nothing. Using the volume key was so much easier!

    it worked with me, u need to be in text mode.
    Thank you. Once I was in text mode, the font size option was there. I didn't have a volume setting, nor could I select to switch that off

    Try going into the messaging app into custom from the three little dots that are up in the right and you can change the size

    Thanks for excellent advice! Many stars on your forehead.

    All of sudden huge text messaging font on Samsung Galaxy SIII/S3. Settings correct. Reboot. Huge text. Pull battery. Huge text.

    This "feature" should have been restricted to SETTINGS, not programmed as a SHORTCUT. People's eyesight does NOT change on a minute to minute basis!

    Samsung, you are great but you still have issues. Get a clue. Beta test your new hardware and/or software release EVERY time. AND, your beta groups should be globally and use diverse, AVERAGE users, not tech writers, power users, or anyone who's willing to waste time searching for fixes/work-arounds.
