Windows 7: iphone reset

iphone reset

So this is "off topic". I loaded ios 8 on a iphone 4s, and is running like crap. Anyone know if a reset of the phone, which there is a button for in settings, will make phone like new, outta the box? Guy from at&t seemed to think so. That would be the only way I would feel comfortable, trying. Not about to figure out how to download some operating system, and then "hope" it'll work. Thx for any help. DM

My girlfriend's iPad Mini was showing the same as your phone, I managed to get it running a bit faster by going to settings>general>reset all settings, it rebooted and nothing was lost apart from background wallpaper and login information, I'd give that a try.

The other method will reset your phone to factory defaults with iOS8 installed.

I may just do a reset, to get it back to like outta the box and see if there may be some apps on it, that is making it glitchy. I'm upgrading to the 6, but giving my young 12 yr old son this phone. Hate to hand him over something that ain't quite right. I may save up some coin, and then attempt to flash it back to the older os. Then if I brick it, I'll pitch it and get him something better. Thx again. DM

ITunes will work fine on windows 7 for the task at hand,
ios8 has not been released to the public yet or at least I see no signs of it being offered on mine,
Cheers.

question

In anyone's opinion, should I do a reset of phone 1st, then attempt to load the os7 firmware, or just load it as is? I want the lesser of chances to brick my phone. Thank you, DM

Turn off sleep :/
ios usually only takes a few minutes depending on internet speed of course
I get the murphy's law thing
Reset should be harmless but I feel Apple wasn't lying to me but it could of gone public at the time so that would of explained it ?

Better hurry though Apple doesn't wait long before going public
