Well it's not a perfect fix and this doesn't actually change the color scheme of the phone, but I found a way to *mostly* cover up the brown colors in a few key areas like: Text Messages, Contact List / Address Book, and Dial Pad. I just downloaded these apps and played around with the color settings in the apps: Text Messages - 'GO SMS Pro', or 'Handcent SMS' (I used this to change text message colors)﻿ Contact List / Address Book - 'GO Contacts' (I used this to change the colors of contacts/ address book) Dial Pad - 'GO Contacts' (I used this same app to change the colors of the dial pad)﻿ Keyboard- There are a ton of keyboard apps in the android market of course. I turned on 'Swype' for the default keyboard under the 'Settings > Language & keyboard settings'. It's got a bit of a learning curve but I like it so far, AND, the keyboard for it isn't brown! Bonus!
