iPhone is stuck at Apple boot logo

I restored my old 8gb 3g iphone (to factory settings...) and it appears to have done that successfully. A message then came up saying "your iphone is restored, do not disconnect it until it restarts and shows up in itunes.." etc...


it looked like it was going to do just that but after 45 mins now, it is not restarting, it just sits there with the apple logo showing. am i being too impatient?

any help would be GREATLY appreciated..

many thanks in advance,

If the progress bar is not moving or has completed and you still have the Apple menu just give it a few minutes. If it doesn't respond after a while, then I would try a hard reset of the device or try plugging it into iTunes and see if will activate that way.
