I reset the preference for the largest font that is contained in the pre-loaded software and I still need my reading glasses for anything more than a glance.
I searched around and after much consternation downloaded a trial version of FontSmoother. It has different fonts and smaller fonts (WHY??) It also has a link that allows one to convert fonts and load them onto the Treo. I would be happy with a bigger version of the font that came with the Treo, but I tried converting and importing a new font. I was not able to do that in a way that helped, and so I went back to the largest pre-loaded font.
Last week, I checked out a BB Curve and reset the font to legible in a matter of minutes.
After several hours, I still cannot do that on a Treo and would appreciate any advice or help to just get a LARGER version of the font that the Treo came with or if necessary an imported, bigger font. Thanks so much.
