Yup, this is Greek to me!
"Nothing is more miserable than those people who never failed to attack their own salvation. When there was need to observe the Law, they trampled it under foot. Now that the Law has ceased to bind, they obstinately strive to observe it. What could be more pitiable that those who provoke God not only by transgressing the Law but also by keeping it? But at any rate the Jews say that they, too, adore God. God forbid that I say that. No Jew adores God! Who say so? The Son of God say so. For he said: "If you were to know my Father, you would also know me. But you neither know me nor do you know my Father". Could I produce a witness more trustworthy than the Son of God?"  St. John Chrysostom  Sunday Homily

You could root your phone, perhaps, but I do not know if the Moto Blur supports rooting/if people have solutions for it.

There should be directions specific to your model on the internet.

You could always factory reset it.

What did you end up doing?

(I root. Constantly.)

I'd thought (M) killed Blur a long time ago (2011)?

You could always factory reset it.

Phone manufacturers and service carriers do send out updates.  With Sprint I'll receive a notifiication on the phone that an update is available.  If there is a T-Mobile store close to you just go in and they can tell you if your OS version is up to date.

If you phone has become laggy I'd defiently factory reset it.  That will likely help a lot.  You will loose any phone numbers, data, pics, etc. stored on the phone, so back it up to your computer first.  I use to have to reset my Palm Pre about every 3-4 months.  My HTC Evo is 2 years old and after I reset it about 4 months ago it was way better.

Apparently you factory reset it, and if you want to kill Motoblur (which is pretty notorius for slowing things down), when you factory reset, you just skip (hit "next") when it starts setting up Motoblur.

Wow, they DID NOT get rid of it Motoblur! Well I found a page (just a few months old) with the step-by-steps to reset and avoid MotoBlur (when the screen shows up, hit menu, skip), and it warns you what few features you'll miss (social stuff), but you should have a faster phone.

It doesn't say to do this, but BEFORE you reset, you should open a Gmail account (like the rest of us android users) and let Google get all your contacts and emails (sync phone to Google), and you shouldn't have to re-enter anything ever again with any phone (Google auto-syncs your android phone if you sign in with that Gmail account so you don't really need Motoblur). You can check contacts.google.com to see if that's already there (it really should be). I manage my contacts from my laptop.
