BOLD 9650 Browsing
I have the 9650 bold and when I view webpages, the font is so small its hard to read. I have changed the font settings and its still not like it was with my 8330 curve. One site for example is On my curve it was easy to read this site. On the bold I need a magnifying glass.

Also Ive noticed when I change my font, what used to be a 8 font on the 8330 curve, I have to make like a 12 font for the same size. I don't know if this has to do something with the resolution of the 2 devices, I always thought an 8 font is the same size on any device. Right now I have the default font size and minimum font size set to 12.

Any suggestions?

Try Browser > Menu > Options > General Properties > Default View > Column

When I change it to Column view, the formattiing is all off for that page.

Yes. Leave in page view and see if zoom in works for you. I notice that from the browser, options-general settings did not help

That helps to a point but when I zoom, other fields move off the screen. There has to be a way to get it to look like the 8330, where I can see the whole screen in large enough font.

I tried your setting and just going to for example the formatting is all off. I know on my curve I had it set at column view but column view on the bold the formatting is all off.

My browser identification is blackberrry.

Sprint: 9650 BOLD
Font size too small:
This is a known issue to RIM. They are working on it. The OS 6 has great improvements over the OS 5. Until then try another site or the zoom in the menu.

Re: BOLD 9650 Browsing
I just got a 9750 Bold with OS 6 & I'm seeing the same tiny virtually unreadable fonts with no way to select column view and the zoom is very awkward. Terrible implementation.

I also don't like the icons that appear instead of just contact names when I type from the Home screen. The names are in such small fonts that they, too, are difficult to read.

I'm going back to my Curve.
