I found that the dial buttons in the Phone program that come with Windows Moible 5.0 PDA devices are very small.

Does anyone know any alternatives or ways to make them bigger?

Is there no hardware "dial" button? on JasJam, it is just the right size.

You didn't tell us what Pocket PC you are using, so we don't know if it's QVGA, VGA, Square. But you could try PhonePlus for Pocket PC and see how it goes. Their new version has some big buttons.

I think the OP is referring to the dial pag (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0) which on many devices is either on a slide out keyboard, requiring an alt-key combination, or a software screen based dial pad.

I have always found touch screen based dialling awful...

Sorry, I dont have any help here, just clarification and a few cents worth of opinion...

Yes, I thought were the on screen dial buttons - hence my suggestion for a "skin" replacement.

There are some other skins for Windows Mobile 5 around. This version of OS made it very easy to create custom dial screens.

It may be a little slugish though...
