    Hey everyone,

    I hope this helps some people who are visually impaired like myself read text messages... I know I have a hard time seeing them sometimes. So what I do is take a snap shot of my text message I get, then I use a multi-task program and it closes my text message screen... then I open up my photos/camera roll and then I can zoom into what my text message says. It might be a bit of a pain but at least it's doable until something else comes up which it will i'm sure...

    Anyways... thought I would share and hope it helps

    I'm pretty sure you can make it easier.

    On your iPhone, go into Settings. Then General and scroll down to accessability. Turn your zoon on. Now instead of having to take a screenshot you'll be able to zoom anywhere at anytime.

    Try it out

    We don't have accessibilities on the IPhone 3g... that option is only on the 3GS...

    Yeah, my friend has bad eye-sight and she has an iPhone 3GS she can zoom in. My iPhone 3G won't let me do that.

    Good tip though, thanks!

    Ahh, my mistake. I saw the device image and didn't take the time to look whether it was a 3GS or not.

    4.0 has the option to increase the font size of messages/notes/calender + more.
