I installed ios7 on a pretty old iPhone (2009 I think). The phone is now slow with awful battery life. Does anyone know how to downgrade? Many thanks in advance.

2009 would be an iPhone3GS. if Whitd00r was used to get iOS7 firmware installed, then yes- a DFU restore with iTunes will bring back 6.1.6
