    Not sure what I did, but on powering up, I had trouble getting it to turn on. Maybe I double pressed the powere button after the power on had started, but as soon as the droid eyeball screen came up, all images on the screen were in negative. This continued through the home screen loading until I turned the phone off and restarted, getting normal colors.

    WTF?!

    BTW, is there a way to do a soft reset, or is power cycling it?

    Just saw this post. Mine did the same thing on day 2. Its like it didn't want to boot up then when it did everything was in negative coloring. All i had to do was turn the screen off and back on and it was fine. Hasn't done it since. To tell the truth i had all kinds of little (hmmmmmmm) moments the first 2 days. I let the battery die and did a full charge with phone off and haven't had any probs . Now i also get FANTASTIC battery life, where before i was getting like 3 and 4 hours out of a charge. Good luck!!

    I had this happen once as well. It freaked me out because I thought the LCD screen was defective. Thankfully, it hasn't done it since and is most likely a software glitch of some kind.
