Hi Guys
I am looking at changing my current phone (Nokia 6300) which was bought in a hurry to replace a Nokia E72 that someone stole!
I wear glasses & have a pair at home & another pair at work. The problem I have is if I am out & about & don't have my glasses, I can't read the texts I receive! Part of the pleasure of getting older I guess. Which (if any) of the BB models has a LARGE size of text & can anyone point me in the direction of youtube or wherever, so I can SEE for myself the size. I don't want to buy a phone & find I can't read the texts again.
Any suggestions of model best suited to this would be useful

Go into a store and see for yourself.

On the device go to Options (it looks like a wrench) then go to Screen/Keyboard and adjust the Font Size.

Then see if this is big enough for you.
