    What you have to do I believe is put your phone in recovery mode. Once you do that then restore using iTunes.

    Sounds like your a unauthorized user of the beta program. This will get you back to iOS 6.

    DFU

    1. Turn the iPhone ON

    2. CONNECT it to the dock

    3. Make sure iTunes is open so you'll know when it enters DFU mode

    4. HOLD the Power button AND the Home button for 10 seconds

    5. RELEASE only the Power button and continue to hold the Home button

    6. WAIT until iTunes recognizes the phone in recovery mode and then restore.

    as stated above, a DFU restore should get you back on ios6. and in the future, if you are going to use beta software when you refuse/havent read the release notes or warnings, it would be good to do a little more research first. if you did a little more reading, you wouldve found out this was going to be an issue that was expected and would have been prepared for.
