  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings Settings > Accessibility.
  3. Set the Magnify Mode switch to On.
The screen immediately appears larger.

Increase or decrease the magnification of a screen

When you use Magnify, you might find that some screens need more or less magnification than others. You can adjust the magnification without leaving your current screen.
  1. To zoom in, slide your fingers apart.
  2. To zoom out, slide your fingers together.
If you reach the maximum magnification, your BlackBerry device vibrates.
