    help-stuck on hourglass during wipe...!!!

    I've been here about 20 minutes waiting on wiping the handheld-any guesses on how long it'll take? I bought it off EBay and it came unlocked, but having truble with the data connection being refused. Long story short, the cingular store only gave me a temp fix, so I decided to wipe it...and I am stuck...

    I would wait a little longer... another 20 minutes just to be safe, reloading the OS can take some time.

    Let us know what happens, so we can help you further.

    Reloading the OS has taken me an hour before espcially with older devices.

    Definitely wait and see what happens. Just go watch a movie or something.

    I have seen a wipe take a few hours before when content protection (encryption) is enabled. Do you know if content protection was enabled or not. Don't be alarmed, just go watch a movie like other users have suggested.
