I have a changeover iphone 4s. Is there a way of going back to IOS7.? It is now chewing up data, battery is being drained too quick, cannot turn off GPS location services plus host of other issues. Not Happy ! it runs 8.1.1

Some of my apps including my camera app have disappeared from my home screen. I found them in settings and have reset home screen layout some came back but several didn't including camera app and App Store,how do I get them back?

I tried to reenable the Camera app, but it said 'Some restrictions are enforced by Maine Department of Education', that wasn't helpful at all 😠😠:evil:
