Can I just restore my phone to an earlier time (earlier OS) through the DM restore option or do I have to reload the earlier OS, and if so how do I go about reloading the earlier OS?

EDIT, restoring does not change the OS, how do I go back to a previous OS?

Thanks, I figured it out after I got settled and had my kids calm down. Just was very nerve racking for a second or two...I got ahold of a a beta version 4.5.0.37...made my phone go nuts, knew I shouldn't have messed with it. Phone reset like every 30 seconds. Thanks again guys...as I sit in timeout and wait for an official release.

I restored (to get my address book back) after reinstalling the later OS and now the Browser and t-zones icons are gone, any ideas?
