    You can do without losing any data ( take a backup in case anyway).

    1. Download 10.3.1 ipsw ( seacrh online)
    2. Open itunes, connect iphone, clck on Shift+ update ( windows) select ipsw.
    3. Phone will be downgraded to 10.3.1 and all data will be intact.

    It is highly recommended to do a wipe when doing this, because there have been known issues when shift restoring to a previous versions.

    I've done it numerous times too, but its all chalked up to YMMV. I've had instances with no problems, and then I have instances where everything went to hell in a hand basket. For peace of mind sake, its easier to DFU.

    This. Sometimes it's fine, other times it breaks stuff.

    You can't restore your backup from a higher version of iOS to a lower version unless you edit the backup file, which could be catastrophic. Simply restoring your backup does not downgrade your OS.
