Does anyone know how to revert back to IOS update 6.0.1/6.0.2 from 6.1.?

My 4s has lost wifi and Bluetooth connectivity, tried all recommended actions and no luck, bar using a hairdryer or freezing as some have tried.

Not happy.  Have recommended everyone I know not to do update yet.  Thanks for your input.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1

    Restore the device as new.

    If the problem continues, take the device to Apple for evaluation and possible replacement.

    Tried with new update, restoring network settings again, full restore, although not as new phone, as I do not want to have to re-input all phone numbers and the like again if I don't have to.

    No offense, but that is simply an ignorant statement.

    If the device is used as designed, contacts are synced to a supported application on the computer or a cloud service.  Simply sync them back after restoring the device as new.


    Only a fool would rely on a device that can be easily lost/stolen or damaged as sole source of data storage.

    I went to Apple yesterday to have them look at my phone. It was a 4S, had greyed out Wifi, no bluetooth connectivity. They replaced my phone. Tonight my phone is doing the same thing as my old phone, so I'm annoyed/upset with that now - time, effort and money wasted for nothing.


    Jfromvc - as long as you back it up, your contacts should still all be there . I backed it up before I left yesterday, and then just set my new iPhone up as a backup from my old iPhone.

    Hi I am experiencing the same thing as you. I was just replaced the phone yesterday from apple shop. But what I am different with you is my warranty was ended 4 months already. In the beginning he wanted to charge me USD 200 but I insisted that this is their problem. I refused to pay or if they just roll back the 4s to 6.0.1. of course finally they free to replace a new 4s to me. The new phone the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth of course it's fine however I found other issue when I get back to home - the gmail in exchange does not work at all in mail app. oh my God! Now I am stuck here and don't know what to do. is anyone having the same problem?
