    AM new to WP8 and Lumia devices...

    Am having a Lumia 920 right now, one of my friend is asking for it...
    So i will be doing a factory reset while handing it over to him...

    The problem is that, while doing factory reset Many lumia does do get stuck at Spinning Gears.
    I know tat its a bug, but is there any way to safely do a factory reset?

    kindly let me know..

    Hi bondarun,

    connect your phone to your PC, then delete all files i.e. pics, vids etc. , this will help during the reset because the phone will have less data to wipe, I reset mine once while it had 3gb free, I got impatient when the spinning rims went on for hours, I rebooted my phone then it bricked, I fixed by following instructions from some forum around here, since then when I need to reset I delete all files then phone resets in less done 10 mins,
