    ICS update - on 2nd Factory Reset - Google sign-in process taking forever. Normal?

    I am on my 2nd factory reset this morning. The part of the process where you sign onto google was taking forever the first time. When I hit the home button it asked if I wanted to stop the setup and I said yes the first time. Well it was not updating gmail right, phone was laggy, and I could not download any apps from the play store. So I just did another factory reset and it is in the "Signing In - this can take a few minutes" stage for nearly 1/2 hour already. IS this normal??? Do I wait it out?

    I would reboot and try again. Did you mess with your sim card?

    I rebooted and it is working. But man everything is slow. I realize it is updating google stuff, but it takes forever to get new gmail. Took an hour to download one app. Even my Droid 1 was quicker to set up than this.

    I would boot into recovery & clear the cache & if that doesn't do it do the same & clear the data.
    You can clear both but I would hold off on the data if there is game saves or data for apps you don't want to lose.
    If you are not worried about saving data clear it out.

    I you want me to create a separate thread I will, but I didn't want to junk the place up with redundant threads. So, that's why I'm asking about this in here...

    After waiting and waiting and never getting any updates, I finally just used HoB to upgrade to ICS.
    HoB worked like a CHAMP and I will forever be grateful to Sam for that.

    However, the upgrade to ICS didn't seem to help me with all of the general slowness (many minutes to download even tiny apps from the store, 10 or more seconds to wait for a menu to pop up when I click something, etc) and glitchiness (apps crashing all the time, Bionic sometimes just auto rebooting for no user requested reason, all kinds of other things, etc).

    So, the next step was to do a factory data reset (the idea being that doing so should clear up all of that kind of stuff).

    Problem =
    The FDR seemed to come off without a hitch until after I signed into my Google account. That was last night sometime, and it's still on the screen that says,

    "Signing in...
    This can take a few minutes"

    During the time that I was actively waiting for it to get done, I noticed that, if I turn the screen off with the power button, and then back on, I am able to pull down the notification bar, and get to some things. So, I went ahead and connected to my home wifi network......still no change.

    I also was able to click the little gear icon, and get into 'Settings'.
    Beyond that, at one point, an app update appeared on the notification bar, and I clicked it and was able to get into 'My Apps' and saw that a lot of them were already there, but wasn't sure if they all were, because I didn't take the time to look through them all or do a count.

    Just for kicks, I left it alone (plugged into the wall charger for power) over-night....I was thinking...well, I did have lots of apps before. So, perhaps it's just taking a long time to re-download them all or something.

    No luck....it's still there at the same screen.

    I can still trick it by turning off the screen, then back on, then dragging down the notification bar, and get into some things from there, but once I back out of whatever I'm in, it just goes back to the "Signing in.." screen.

    Now, I assume that I could probably safely just reboot the thing at this point, or even do a complete new FDR like I just did, but I figured I'd check in here to see if there is anything else I can try first (or instead of that).

    Any idea what is happening here?

    Any suggestions on where to go next?

    My advice Is to call Verizon, and get a droid Razr maxx. Best thing I ever did. Flawless phone.

    HA!
    OK, you see....that's exactly what I've been thinking. Could it really be that I do not deserve this piece of $h!t, and that I could actually get a phone that works?

    What a concept. Thanks for the advice.

    I bought this thing at Best Buy with their special 'trade-in' plan or whatever. Should I go to Verizon though because it's essentially from them in the first place, or do I need to deal only with Best Buy?

    I don't know your exact circumstance, but I had my phone for over a year. I had to do over the phone and they sent me a reconditioned Razr Maxx per my request. Honestly it has been awesome and I wished I had done it 6 months ago.
