Skip to comments.How do I downgrade my iPhone 4 operating system back to IOS6? I cannot stand IOS 7. (Vanity)

I just downloaded IOS 7 on my iPhone, and I cannot stand it. It is draining my battery. I cannot delete messages or voicemails easily. The calendar function is difficult to navigate. I just plain don't like it. I tried to restore a backup, but that only restores contacts and music, not the firmware.
We are living the easiest existence ever experienced by the human animal...and listen to us bitch.
Dammit!! I had an app on my smartphone and now I can’t find it!!! Can you help?? It’s very very important.
Hehe ... first world problems ;-)
I can’t decide whether to have lobster or steak for dinner and it’s driving me nuts
I don’t have an iPhone, so I didn’t pay much attention, but Rush spent a long time last week or the week before explaining the go-around for the battery drain. It’s on his website with pictures.
The main thing I hate about iOS 7 is its "Droid like" UI. I really liked the older iOS interface.
I've pretty much put down my iPad Mini and gone back to using my original iPad. Stuck at iOS 5.3, but it's jailbroken and does everything I want it to do.
I pretty much feel Apple screwed the pooch on iOS 7 (gee, like MS did with Windows 8) and my iPad mini is for all intents and purposes, "a brick."
My very large fingers are just too big for iOS 7. I just got too sick and tired of "pressing the wrong thing" and having to carry around a stylus.
Dammit Apple, if I had wanted a Droid I'd have bought one. Oh yeah I DO own a Droid. A Google Nexus 7. Even Google was smart enough to know that "underlined text links" suck and largely doesn't use them anymore. Apple? MEH.
Anyone in the market for an iPad Mini 64gb WiFi model contact me via Freepmail.
I have no complaints, but damned if I can figure out how to transfer my play list on my laptop to my iphone.
Just hit it with a hammer and free yourself.
“Dammit!! I had an app on my smartphone and now I cant find it!!! Can you help?? Its very very important.”
There is an app for that.
Following to see if it’s possible, can’t stand the 7 either.
You must be doing it wrong, I suggest that on Monday you call their spokes person, his name is Rush Limbaugh and he can tell you all you ever wanted to know and a boatload more about Apple products. Oh that is is if you can catch him between Tea and Book monologues.
If it’s draining your battery, it’s probably because it turned Wifi or Bluetooth or GPS on without your knowing. Try checking them and turning them off if they are on.
I read somewhere that you cannot revert.
The best way is to buy a Samsung.
Tried that. It wasn’t it.
Why didn’t I think of Google?
Transfer your playlist with Google. Really easy. Every time you add a song one place it just drops into the playlist in the other.
What exactly are you having trouble with?
I run wifi , Bluetooth and GPS in turned on mode always. Never have a battery drain problem. What device are you using?
I have iOS 6 on my iPhone 5 and have heard enough bad about iOS 7 that I refuse to upgrade. I hope you;re successful.
“I cant decide whether to have lobster or steak for dinner and its driving me nuts”
Why not both? Quite delicious, and should help with the sanity situation as well.
I have had a few calls at work (Help Desk) from people who recently upgraded only to lose their contacts amongst others complaints.
I agree that the flat look is not as good looking as the one with drop shadows. Apple should include both options.
Thank you for your reply. The iPhone is connected to the laptop. It shows up with its own icon as an external drive ie f drive. It will not accept the mp3 file when I try to drag and drop into the f drive. I hope that explained it well enough.
I solved all of my iPhone issues by migrating to an Android based phone.
Not only does the phone cost far less, it performs better and my no-contract carrier is saving me about $500 a year over ATT
All you iGadget complainers better settle down or the AppleBois will drag you off to iReeducation camp....
But guess what, I didn't hit a single red light! Nothing but greens all the way to the restaurant. I never had time to send that text.
Ended up I got to the restaurant right on time but damn, was I pissed. You never get a red light when you really need one. I was so angry!
...........We are sorry, but the FReeper that you have commented to has been removed......No further information is available............
Not going there.
Oh no! Not iRe-education camp!
That was seriously funny, thanks for the laugh.
I tried. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.
Perhaps try converting the file using another program on your computer.
Take it from your phone to another program.
Open it in that program and then save it.
From there transfer it to where you want it to go.
My friend drank. When the power connector stopped working after a year, he was told to buy a new phone.
Not going there.
haha is he STILL plugging SNapple tea?
Just yesterday someone I know had a new Apple 5S and clicked on an audio file from their email. They tried stopping the audio player by hitting the pause button as that’s how you’re supposed to stop it and it wouldn’t stop. Basically it was frozen so my first instinct is to instruct them to remove the battery as that’s what I would do with my Galaxy S2, and then I remembered Apple STILL doesn’t offer removable batteries for their iPhones, and the sheep never learn.
Been a while since you listened? He hawks his own brand.
After the ordeal I went through to try to get IOS 7 off of my phone, I would equate Apple’s new operating system with Obamacare. It sucks and people are now forced to deal with it. I have used Palm Pilots, Blackberrys and iPhones, and IOS 7 is without a doubt the worst operating system I have ever seen. It’s like people are sheep being led to slaughter with this company. They charge ridiculous prices and people line up to pay.
Yeah tell me about it. Matter of fact why don’t you tell FR’s own resident Apple guru Swordmaker. In his eyes, Apple can do no wrong and anyone that criticizes Apple is operating under what he calls FUD.
What is “FUD”?
