What type phone do you have? Which apps are you trying to delete? Are you uninstalling straight from the app itself or are you using a app to try and uninstall them?

Depending on what type of phone you have, one of the easiest methods to delete an app, is just take your thumb and hold it over the particular app for about 3-5sec. then a small x will appear in the corner of the app and you just click the x. I would like to make you aware, some apps are programed into the phone, so you will not be able to remove certain apps.

You can't uninstall most pre-installed apps. You don't uninstall by dragging into trash that just removes them form the screen.

That description fits the method for an Apple device. It doesn't work like this for an Android device.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I would check my phone for an app called DT Ignite. If you go into settings-application manager and tap the 3 dots on the right hand top side then tap show system apps. This app could be putting a lot of bloatware on your phone. You can not uninstall it but you can disable it.The best way to uninstall a app is by tapping the app that you want to uninstall and see if the app says that you can either uninstall it or just disable it.I am sure if you uninstall it from inside the app itself it will not be there once you reboot the phone.

I certainly understand the benefit of deleting unwanted applications off your phone, ACHGAR45. Having the device shut down after you attempt to remove an application is not ideal. Is this happening with the pre-installed applications or ones you downloaded from the Play Store? Also, what version of software do you have on your device? Use you can use the link below to view the software on your LG V10:
