It completely wipes your phone clean. When I did it, it restored to the latest version of iOS (speaking of iOS 6 when I had my 4s).

Thanks- assuming that you were on ios 7 then it reverted back to 6.1.3

My previous comment was not in regards to iOS 7. I was referring to a time last year, when I wiped my 4s clean.

Edited to add: I am not aware of anyone using that method to downgrade from iOS 7. If that is what you are thinking about, proceed with caution.

He is asking if anyone has used that method to downgrade from iOS 7. And if so, what were the results.

It doesn't downgrade anything. It just wipes the phone.

I did a clean reinstall on iOS 7 today. When I went to restore to iOS 6, iTunes wouldn't let me because Find My iPhone was turned on. When I went to turn off Find My iPhone I had to enter in my Apple ID. This probably has to do with the new Activation Lock feature and I was happy to see it.

But other than that, restoring to iOS 6 and reinstalling iOS 7 was a snap.

It restores to iOS7.
It's just like a brand new phone where you have to activate and setup your iTunes account.
If your UDID is not registered for beta testing you won't get past the activation and you'll have to revert to iOS6 via DFU mode.
