    .. And use that as backup?

    I ask because my computer is out of order so that I might have to use a library computer to backup my iPhone and upload it to a storage site but I wonder if it would upload okay and if it would really work if I download it again and try to put it back in the iPhone.

    I want to back up because I want to be able to go back to the lower iOS (5.1.1) if I find the iOS 7 which I want to update to unbearably slow.

    You can't go back to an older version of iOS using a backup. It would only restore the contents, not the iOS version.

    Like the others said you can only go forward and not backwards.
