I have som users that need to chnage key size on the keyboard in a windows mobile phone.
I can do this under setting/personal/input on the phones running Windows mobile (version: 5.2.21840 (Build 21840.5.0.60), but on those phones (running version: 5.2.23137 (Build 23137.5.3.9) i just cant seem to find this option.
Is it hidden somewhere else or do I need to downgrade?

Try this:

In a program, press the keyboard icon at the bottom of the screen. If you can see a different input icon, press the icon, press the Input Selector arrow to the right side of the input icon and then press Keyboard.
Enter text and numbers by pressing keys on the on-screen keyboard.
To make the keys larger, press the Input Selector arrow and then press Options. In the Input method list, select Keyboard and then press Large Keys.

the manufactorers may decide to include or exclude optional elements from a windows mobile firmware image. They may also include there own extensions or variations on some of the elements.

In your case it looks like the manufactorer has decided to remove an optional extension. You may downgrade the phone to the same build as the phone has with the option available (as long as these are identical models). You may also ask the vendor, if they supply a patch for the current build that brings back your desired option.

Possibly there is only a registry change needed to enable the option. With CE Regeditor freeware you can save the device's registry (connected via ActiveSync) to a file and compare those registry snapshots.

Alternatively you can switch to a 3rd party software keyboard as provided by, for example, SPB software.
