This was caused due to the fact you had the Zoom function activated.

To prevent this happening again, go to Settings>Accessibility and switch the Zooom function off.

Entire screen is magnified and huge. How can I


That's a simple fix.
Just double-tap on the screen of your iPhone using 3 fingers to zoom-out. You can do the same thing to zoom in.

Big icons on my iphone 3gs home screen.plz solve this problem


You must have zoomed-in the screen accidentally. It's easy to zoom-out, just double-tap anywhere on the screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously) and everything will go back to normal.

And in case you want to zoom-in again, just do the same thing.
