    Do you have access to a computer with Windows 7 or 8 and WiFi?

    If so, download Nokia Software Update (NSU). Download it via the link here: Suffering from the spinning cogs issue on a Nokia Windows Phone? There's a fix for that | Windows Phone Central

    Ignore the title of the post.

    After you install the software hook up your phone. You will be given an option to do a reinstall of your firmware. It will download and install a complete firmware for your phone. Note that it will erase everything from your phone.

    If that doesn't work your phone is faulty and should be returned and given a new one.

    I don't know if this is related, but our 520 was hanging a lot in the beginning. Photos and settings, and sometimes other things, just wouldn't close or open, and we couldn't turn the phone off without holding volume down and power for a minute or so.

    I got rid of lots of apps, did a few factory resets, but the only thing that seemed to work is to not use the camera button. We take photos with a screen tap.

    It hasn't hung up for a couple of months now, but the last couple of times one or two restarts fixed it.

    I have no other idea of a cause, so you might consider a hardware issue, too.

    Good luck- it's very frustrating and I almost sent it in to Nokia for replacement.

    New one on me. Did you have much space on your phone?
