Text messages, MMS messages, email, music catalog, operating system settings, safari cache, siri cache, Genius data (if enabled), game center data -- esentially everything on your phone that isn't explicitely listed in the bar chart at the bottom of iTunes on your computer.
Sometimes there is also data corruption on the phone that ends up in Other. To get rid if it try restoring the phone with iTunes. If that makes no difference the corruption is in your backup; restore again as a new phone, then add content back.

All that stuff is the pre installed apps that came with the iphone. Like maps,safari,mail,messages,etc.
You cant delete these apps.
Tip: clear browsing history in safari it helps sometimes.
I hope that i helped

I backed up my phone, then restored it with iTunes and added the content back. And now I have 3.80GB of "other." I removed all the additional apps (Twitter, games, etc.) and it didn't change anything. What is the normal size for the "other" file?

im thinking with sys files and all the standard stuff the average amount should be about 1.2-1.5gb of "other" normally
