    You say you bought this phone from Apple online. It would never ship with a beta installed. Did you install a beta on a unauthorized iPhone?

    even if it has a beta OS on it you should be able to put the phone into DFU mode and restore to the latest official iOS version.

    how to enter DFU mode.

    I'm sorry, but they have stopped signing iOS 7, so you can't go back.
