    Hi Amrutha and welcome to iMore.

    You have reset your phone back to the factory default 'out of the box' settings. You will have to set it up again from scratch

    Unless you do not have a lockscreen passcode, you couldn't just by mistake reset all settings, it would ask you to enter your passcode to continue the operation. However and now that you have hit the reset all settings, things should have went smooth and putting back your iPhone in a factory ios condition. But you are stating that it's stuck with an apple logo on the screen for more than 30mn. At this point, you will use iTunes to download the latest ios version 7.1.1 and connect your iPhone to your computer and use iTunes to factory restore the ios into your iPhone. Good luck

    After you set up your phone back to factory condition if you have done a recent backup you can then use your backup to get back the way it was. If you did not you will have to start over.

    I was thinking the same thing. And doesn't it ask you at least once if you are SURE you want to?

    Anyway, you can restore from backup (as stated above) if you backed the phone up.

    Yes it asks if you're sure. This is very weird
