    I reset my Lumia 920 and it is stuck on the little gear thing. I was wondering how long it usually takes. Right now I'm hitting 2 hours. Is there anything that I can do???

    I've heard that it can take up to like 8 hours. So I would just be patient and make sure it doesn't die. I just reset my brothers phone and it took sub 5 minutes so I'm not sure.

    I wonder if it has something to do with GB and all. I have about 17 used GB on there

    It has been reported that the less free space, the longer it takes.

    As mentioned earlier, it can take hours. Best bet is to leave it overnight.

    Just to let y'all know it didn't work. I left it plugged in overnight and when I woke up the gears were still moving. Had it plug in and everything. Going into best buy today to see what they can do, (I bought the phone there) but this is very weird. Haven't had one problem with my Nokia Lumia.

    There is a post in the Nokia Lumia 920 forum about this but what I do is do a soft reset (Hold the volume down and power button until the phone vibrates) then, as the phone comes back on and the Nokia logo is on the screen press and release the volume up button, then the volume down button, then the power button, then the volume down button. Wait about 10 to 20 minutes and if the spinning gears are still there try again. I have never had to do this more than once.
