Many times, when I’m doing BlackBerry theme reviews, I comment that the font isn’t ideal, and that I’d change it if using that particular theme. While this might be second nature to some, it’s not to everyone, so I figured we’d quickly go over the process of changing the font on your BlackBerry messages and menus. As usual, the process starts in Options. So you’ll go to Options, then Screen/Keyboard. Atop that menu are a number of options relating to the font. Below this is the famous sentence, The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog, to preview how the text will look. Up top is your font style. There are a few default ones that come with the BlackBerry. If you have changed your theme and want the original text style back, select BBAlpha Sans. There are about a dozen or so more you can choose from, some more spacious than others. Below that you can change the font size. I recommend changing the Font Family first, since a number of those fonts are bigger than the default one. Finally, you can change the style. This includes bolding and italicizing the font. Not my cup of tea, but I know a few people who prefer bolded text. No idea why.
