    Hi;

    With my 50+ year old eyes I could really use some help. With my note 3 you could hit the volume up button to increase the font size in the stock SMS app(or volume down to decrease). For some reason they removed that ability. I have tried every way I can think of to make the font larger. Does anyone know how to increase the size of the font in the stock SMS app?

    Thanks for any help

    Go to the contacts list page in the messaging app. Select "more" in upper right corner. Toggle device font size to "off". Select font size using size slider. Tap "done" upper right corner.

    What app are you using?

    Thanks All! I was using message+, and didnt know it. I went to the Samsung folder and found the stock message app and placed it on my home-screen. Now I can read my text messages without my reading glasses!
