Depending on which phone you have, you can download the .ipsw and restore. You can probably still do it quickly as the 5.1.1 firmware might still be signed digitally.
So google search for iphone 4s 5.1.1 gsm for example. Download the ipsw.
In itunes after you back everything up to icloud or your local machine, hit alt and the restore button. It should pop up a dialog to select your firmware. Choose the ipsw that you selected previously.
When done, you'll have 5.1.1. It will ask you if you want to restore from a previousy iphone backup. Select your backup. Done.

The refurbs are the downfall now apple only stock 16gb 4S's
But u can go and see what they say regardless my 4S has a dead pixel
It does annoy me cos I know it's there plus a smart piece of plastic has come of
On the charger port but phone charges fine still will book a genius myself in a couple
Of weeks to purchase the AppleCare and get there opinion on my 2 troubles lol
Let us know what they say to u
What are you going to purchase AllpeCare for? If you're thinking about getting it for your 4s, think again. AppleCare+ has to be added within 30 days of purchase.
And if they swap you out with a remanufactured phone, you won't be able to tell the difference from a new one. In fact, I had my 4s swapped out the day IOS6 was released, and the genius told me they don't give out refurbs, only new units. They're packaged differently because you don't get the accessories that normally come with a new phone. And they should have a stock of each model, not just the 16GB, for replacement purposes.

Also that is interesting that u mentioned about refurb my replacement was in
A black box but the Apple rep said it was brand new, I had a good at the replacement phone I was given at the time It Was a real good refurb then if it was one lol
I was told the same when my phone was replaced, that it was new. Mine was also in a black box, plastic, sealed with a label, if I remember correctly.
And good deal with the AppleCare in the UK. I wish they'd do that here in the states.
