Hi all, sorry to be spamming the board here with possibly dumb questions, but I was wondering if it's the OS or my Lumia 800 that doesn't zoom and/or auto-wrap the text?
Is there a way to do it? This old dog's eyes are not getting any better, and I really like, or NEED, to zoom when browsing. Not only does Internet Explorer on the phone NOT let me zoom, but where I CAN zoom, like emails, it doesn't auto wrap?
Is it Nokia? Or MS?
I can't find anything in settings to make text larger by default, either...

Thanks palandri, but that doesn't do anything for the auto wrap. I should correct my original post. I CAN zoom on IE, but not on certain news apps like NYTimes or Le Monde.
It's really annoying when zooming that text doesn't auto-wrap.

Right, but does it auto-wrap? Or do you have to do a lot back and forth scrolling? Looking into it further, after posting (sorry!) I found WP doesn't support auto-wrap. At least that was my take on what I read.
If that's the case, I hope they fix it. I'm loving my Lumia and WP 7.5, but having better control of text would be wonderful.

Safari in the iPhone doesn't word wrap either, or at least it didn't used to. I don't see why they couldn't have made it an option. The browsing experience is probably smoother in terms of visuals but in terms of actually reading content, I'd think word wrap would be nice to have as an option since you can choose the text magnification. Not all webpages use the same font size so it may be large, or small, and zooming also changes the margins.

My BB 9900 may have a smaller screen, but in portrait mode it's actually wider than my Radar's screen, and I can select a large default browser font. Double-tapping wraps most web text, resulting in an easily readable screenful. I'm finding this to be a real problem on the Radar.
Does anyone know if this will be changed/fixed in a WP update?
