did all this however everything I want to delete like Google+ (which I don't use) only lets me uninstall the updates not get rid of the app then the phone constantly want to update said apps. Really need these developers to allow these apps to be moved to the sd card or taken out by the user without "rooting" the phone

Dlansing13, you may also transfer important applications to your SD card and have the phone reset to factory settings so unwanted application will be removed. Unless, Google+ is a default application on your phone. If the option to "Uninstall" and "Move to SD card" is not available, that means that the application is default and can't be removed or moved. Thanks!

I thought the stuff in the "filer" was stored on the SD card -- not on the internal memory of the phone --???
