[deleted post]I had the same problem. I saw turning gear wheels which didn't go away.
I had the simcard removed. What I did to solve the issue was the following.
1. I entered my simcard in the phone.
2. I connected my phone on the charger.
3. I pushed the power on/off button and the volume down button stimultaniously for a couple of seconds till it starts vibrate and reboot.
4. I waited and eventually the phone asked for my pin number. When I entered my pin, the phone booted up automatically, from the beginning.
All settings were restored to the factory settings.
I hope it will help you. It's a common issue.
Goodday,i carried out factory settings on my lumia device920 and since then it has refuse to boot. pls kindly assist.
Max Berling, 03 Sep 2013Hi, If I can buy the Lumia 920 and the HTC One X+ for the same price, which should I get ?... moreGet htc one x+ because better build and more apps avalible also windows 8 is really bad trust me
It's a year ago since this phone was introduced among with the 820. Still a great machine. Price is down and it sure is a good deal.
maja, 06 Sep 2013very good camera!!! Amazing...Battery depends on usage, but one day for sure. Display much bet... moreI think lumia 920 is much better to those plastic made Samsung phones and the people who still using androids are just like the blind followers of those plastic made phone companies.....first u have to learn how to run a windows phone and then u can tell about its goodness....but frm me its time to give farewell to android phones...

People of WP, please do not give up on your Nokia as Stephen elop didn't either. Without your support Nokia would definitely die. Support Nokia's decision, because they know their financial state more than anyone. Im Korean and i loved Samsung however, i don't like android and i fell in love with Nokia and WP. So i got myself a Nokia lumia 925. I saw the potential in Nokia. Please people lets beat the Sony fan boys by supporting our saviour Nokia!

Of course i too feel bad that Nokia is sold, but we should realise that Nokia as a whole was going under. With the giant Microsoft, will all Nokia facilities and of its own and with a new CEO Nokia phones would come up NO.1 in the world. Already Lumias are considered better than others. Of course I am a Nokia favourite since simplicity, I wish NOKIA EMERGE AS NUMBER ONE again. Microsoft has the ability but depends on who is on the driving seat.
This is possibly the worst phone I have ever had. After 2 days the screen was flashing up and down. I took it back to the dealer and they exchanged it for another. A bit annoying when all your data ie music, photos etc, have been installed. After using the second one for 24 hours the same thing happened to that, plus the fact the phone kept switching itself off and I could not get it to stay on, when eventually I did get it to stay on it would not let me call anyone and the screen kept going blank. Took it back again, now have Lumia 925 I am keeping everything crossed that this one doesn't let me down.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2013You guys bought a smart camera instead of a smartphone. You got ripped off by Microsoft.Your soo right. I have this phone and all I can do is just stare at it. I'm still using my N8 more. It's really a downgrade, the only thing it have over the N8 is speed & a bigger screen. I would pay someone to run Symbian on this right now. It has no features at all.
Feel sad, even some of the basic functions missing from the phone. I love this phone not because of the Windows OS but because of Nokia. Nokia has the best camera. I have been using Nokia Phone since many years ago. I'm not sure if Microsoft is really serious about making Windows Phone as the top OS in the market. I'm putting hope on them. Less party and do your work. I think these people are having fun at the party more than doing their work
From Finland, 03 Sep 2013Price of Nokia was ridiculous. Nokia bought some years ago some small American map company. Tu... moreMicrosoft gets hold of a patent portfolio larger than any companies out there at dirt cheap prices – just to get things into perspective – Microsoft also purchased Skype but for a larger price tag of $8.5 Billion than Nokia’s $7.17 Billion price, effectively making Skype worth more than Nokia.
Even unable to control the volum for media, Ringtone and other alerts, no orientation lock. This is a big disappointment. I am glad that I am still in the grace period and I can return my phone. Will return it tomorrow and go get an android phone. People at microsoft own cellphones, so they should know to cover the basics. If I open a youtube video, I have to put the volume down. Then If I forget to put it up, I will not hear my phone or texts. So stupid.
You guys bought a smart camera instead of a smartphone. You got ripped off by Microsoft.

Sire, 06 Sep 201350MB/20MB limitation. I really can't believe such limitations can be seen on a smartphone!!! W... moreJust to add, i have Lumia 920 with a coveted speed of 50 mbps download, and phone don't allow download more than 50 mb, even 3g can download 1000s of mb data in a short time, idiots are sitting at Microsoft.
50MB/20MB limitation. I really can't believe such limitations can be seen on a smartphone!!! What the heck is wrong with Microsoft? Its like they don't really care or wants everybody to be unhappy once u purchase a phone with this trashy OS. I paid good money to purchase this trash and I see no reason why a damn stranger will dictate to me what I should do and what I shouldn't. WindowsPhone is the worst OS I have even seen. I am so unhappy buying this phone. This would be the last Nokia/Microsoft phone I will ever purchase. Idiots.
Dear Mr. Joe Belfiore, WP8 has an opportunity to make up ground on a some what stale market right now, Apple and Google/Android seem to be at a stand still. WP8 is missing so many basic features and customizations that I would assume given your probably unlimited resources you could make happen.
1. How in the world is there not a notification center yet?
2. The status bar needs to be able to be hidden and shown, very annoying even though mail
3. Screen Auto Rotation on/off, also little but important to several people that use WP8
4. Need to be able to "X" out or close apps or swipe or some way to close them
5. Some type of actual multitasking menu, and apps need to be able to run in the background for real
6. I know apps is not Microsoft but I work in IT so let's put some pressure on real business apps, Logmein, Labtech, Team Viewer ect... please put some pressure on these people as you say your geared toward business but I can't use my phone on a day to day basis
I would love to use the Nokia Lumia 920 as my daily driver but everything I just listed makes me have to carry my Galaxy S4.
