    If I am on ios 7 and want to go back to ios 6. Will I be able to restore the ios 6 phone with a back up I did in ios 7?

    No, unfortunately you can't use a backup from a newer OS on an older one.

    I would make sure that you don't have iTunes set to automatically sync. I think a lot of people have the default setting enabled. And when they try to downgrade and install what they think is their iOS 6 backup, they quickly find out that when they were installing iOS 7, that is became the backup.

    Just a thought, for what its worth.
