This is almost always a hardware problem that requires repair or replacement of the phone. Downgrading to iOS 6 wouldn't help, even if you could. There's a small chance that it can be fixed by following the suggestions in this support article:
FYI, do not try the "freezer" or "hairdryer" methods you may see posted. At best they are temporary fixes and are very likely to cause additional damage to the phone...

I am having this problem Started when went on holiday last week and put on airplane mode. Big bill when i got home.
Have reset, no joy. Restored, no joy. Cannot upgrade to ios7 as cannot get wifi so nothing to do with that. Surely all these people having this problem cannot be the phones, it must be software and hence Apple problem
Booked in Covent Garden genius bar on Thursday, will let you know if they are geniuses

You are incorrect. This problem has occurred after every iOS update for the last 6 years and almost always requires hardware replacement. If you tried everything in the support article I posted without success, it certainly is a hardware problem.

Sent my iphone for repair and have been told its non-repairable, i was told - "Had tried to reflow the IC on the logic board but no good" - what ever that means, so now left with a duff iphone that apparently can't be repaired, cheers apple.
