i used Advanced Config 3.3 to change the font size of the menus in mail or txt or any menu for that matter.
Load advanced config and expand User Interface, then scroll down to "Menu bar font size:" and change value to 900
Also change "Popup menu font size:" to 900
I like the 900 setting i tried 600 700 and 800 and they were all too small
1000 is default for Standard size and i believe the stock roms ship with Large as default.
I'm also not sure if those options are available on the stock roms, I am using the new released htc rom from here:
works pretty smoothly right after install and has no AT&T bloatware.
GPS works fine with google maps also. I tried it in Flushing, NY today and it found 11 satellites in under 10 seconds.
