You could try using the Restore function in iTunes

using the backup you made before updating to iOS 6

Apparently, not everyone.

However, you only lose what is not important

RE: iPhones, iPods, and iPads forum: Don't like iOS6

Why? What's the problem with it? All you have to do is to restore the backup file, the iOS you had before you upgrade.

default backup

Does it actually make a backup automatically, by default? Because I know most people don't make back ups before updating the software

In the case of an upgrade, iTunes announces

that a new version is available and asks if you would like to install it.

Answer Yes and the procedure starts without a backup being made.

Hitting the Sync button before saying Yes will result in a backup.

The word on the backup is that there isn't one.

iTunes will have already downloaded iOS6 so a factory restore will take the device to iOS6.
