As a prank someone has inverted the colors on my iPhone. Black is white, blue is orange, etc. How do I get my phone back to normal?

Go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility and set "White on Black" to Off.

Wow, interesting. I wonder what's the real point of this feature though (probably not pranks)... – Jonik Nov 14 '10 at 10:03
Inverting the colors helps people with poor eyesight. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Nov 14 '10 at 10:09
Thank you for your help! – Airplane Mode Nov 14 '10 at 16:29
There's also a shortcut (disabled by default) to switch between the normal and inverted displays, which is pressing the Home button 3 times in a row. – drfrogsplat Nov 15 '10 at 2:34
