On a 3GS, it should be immediate, i.e. a few seconds. Obviously, you have a problem.
I would try resetting your iPhone by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider (if it even comes up). Takes about 5-60 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings. This may or may not do anything but is a quick and easy first try.
You may also need to Restore via iTunes in Recovery Mode... http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808.
