    I am new to these DROID phones, smartphones in general. My wife and I are probably the last 2 people that had regular flip phones until last week when we stepped up to the LG Spectrum by Verizon.
    She seems to be adjusting fairly well to her new phone. I am legally blind and seem to be having more trouble with mine.
    I wanted the spectrum because of its ability to perform text to speech (my daughters seem to only be able to send texts - ya know it ain't cool0 to use the phone for talking anymore!). 0
    My current issue is the size of text 0o0n the phone.
    I would love to hear from anybody that is fighting the same problems I am and how they got around them.
    Thanks and see you around the neighborhood, Bryan or txsonofsam

    Welcome to the Forums! :) I do not have a Spectrum, but there are various text size settings. I am sure someone with a Spectrum will be able to help you out!
