Changing Nokia 5800 Font Style

It is fairly easy to change your font on Nokia 5800. You do not need any external applications but you do need to create a Font Folder with the Files inside. 
You can use any Open Type Font (.OTF) from your PC usually found in C: Windows\Fonts. True Type fonts (.TTF) do not work correctly and should be avoided they can cause errors. You can simply copy a font from your PC usually located in C:\Windows\Fonts just make sure it is an .oft type. If you use fonts from your PC i would avoid thick or large fonts.

Below are some examples is different fonts i have created. Click image to enlarge.
