If your VPN wasn't manually configured, it was configured using a configuration profile.
Check the installed profiles. One of them should contain a VPN payload.
Delete the profile to remove the VPN configuration.

I tried Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. VPN connections that I can't delete still appear.
Then I tried also the Settings > General > Profiles - but there is no "profiles" under settings > general on my iPhone 4s running 5.0.
Can anyone provide support/assistance just telling me how I can remove the dozens of VPN connections that were created using a configuration file I got from my VPN (I live in China and need one to get around the Great Firewall).

To remove the profile go to the website, your website, where you've enrolled the devices and log in with the account that enrolled the devices.
In the overview of the users enrolled devices, choose to delete the device to have all profiles removed from the devices, at least in my experience.
Hope this helps!

How to delete a VPN profile in iOS
It's actually very easy but not obvious;
- Slide VPN switch to ON (you can't open the profile unless VPN is ON)
- Tap on the profile to open it
- Either scroll the prfile box upward OR hide the keyboard and you'll see a big red DELETE VPN PROFILE button, tap it and the profile is deleted.
I've learned over time that hiding the keyboard on some dialogs reveals things I've stumbled around for days trying to find answers to.

After much searching I have found this article. This tells you how to delete a VPN profile without having to blow away the Ipad / iPhone, whatever. Not immediately obvious but works.

I had the same problem with a VPN app that installed 50+ VPN configs. It seemed that the configs were registered but not the VPN profile such that the removal of the configs is virtually impossible.
I tried the followings with no success:
- overwrite the VPN configs
- reset Network Settings
- reset All Settings
- factory reset with backup restore (factory reset with no backup restore it does work but it was not a solution for me)
Finally, I found a simple (not elegant) solution to get rid of the VPN configs:
