    This also works for reading messages, so let's just write in "OK Test VisiHow"

    So 6 times up gives me my maximum size text, and 6 times down puts me back at the smallest text
    .

    That is how you set up or increase the text size of your messages when using the message application in your Samsung Galaxy S5 or S5 Mini
    .
    Since we're not going to use this message, we can simply go back and discard this message.
