In the accessibility options, I can enable "large text" which roughly doubles the size of all text and icons. You can also go into display settings to set font size to "Huge" which does basically the same thing. That would be pretty helpful I imagine.
Regarding the dial-pad, my phone's dial pad takes up the entire 4.3" screen, so that's a non-issue.
Besides all that, choosing a plain/colored background that contrasts well with text and icons on the phone is a must. I don't see an "inverted colors" option in my Razr, so if I select a white background, I can barely see my icon labels. Dark/black backgrounds provide good contrast to the white letters though and will reduce battery drain.
