Is there a way to revert to iOS 5?

I have reasons to hold on to iOS 5 (map issue, "old" hardware with i4).

In case I do upgrade to iOS 6 and regret it, is there a way to go back to iOS 5?

Not unless you're jailbroken

unlocked is not the same as jailbroken.

In order to downgrade you need to have your SHSH blobs files saved I believe... It's been a while since I did a jailbreak so I'm not really sure. Look for redsn0w and TinyUmbrella.

Yes. But you will need SHSH blobs. iFaith can help you with getting them from your device.
