    I just upgraded to this phone recently. Is there any way to remove the junk apps I do not want (Google+ for a start!) without rooting? Being it's brand new I don't want to mess about with rooting yet, unless there is a really simple way to do it like there was on my Xperia X10 (Flashtool)

    Any suggestions would be great

    I think you can not complete the operation without rooting process. Most android phones require rooting to uninstall the default apps.

    You can disable some of these apps in ics

    Thanks for your reply. How would I go about this? It's like when you buy a laptop and they load it up with all the junk you don't want, but at least on a new laptop or PC I have the option to uninstall what I don't want or need.

    If you go into, settings, apps, all, and then select the ones you want to disable on some of them there should be a button that says "disable" press that and it should disable them for you, but it only works for some of them ;)
