    I did a quick reset from the About setting.
    I was stuck on the gear thingy for a while now. Im going to have this replace but worried about sensitive materials on the phone.
    I wonder if the data was wiped out or not?

    You mean the two warnings of your data being wiped by doing a restore wasn't enough?

    I think the OP is wondering if in fact all of his data is erased even though the reset procedure never fully completes after getting stuck on the spinning gears indefinitely.

    If that's the case, it's probably irrelevant; if the phone is bricked the only way to fix it is to flash the phone again which erases all existing user data. I wouldn't worry about it.
