Using the Gmail mobile app on small screen phones

Let's say you want to use the Gmail mobile application on your Java-enabled phone, but you have a really small screen.  Chances are good that you'll download the MIDLET, launch it, and find that the font size is really small and you'll probably stop using it, which is what I did on my Cingular 2125 the first time.  Do not give up so easily!  Here are the steps to fix the font size issue:

  • Launch the MIDLET

  • Sign into Gmail

  • Select "Menu"

  • Select "Go to"

  • Select "Settings"

  • Uncheck "Use Small Fonts"

  • Exit the MIDLET

  • Restart the MIDLET

Assuming that you did everything correctly, you will now have a reasonably-sized font display for your small screen.
