Ofcourse a downgrade is possible *Maybe do a little bit more research*
If your phone is rooted and has a Custom Recovery you could search for an android 2.2 rom for your phone, But if the phone didn't release with android 2.2 or lower it isn't possible.

Means if the oldest version of Android the phone was released / sold with --> you can't install a older rom bacause it doesn't exist and no one would ever starting develop a android version lower then the first stock rom the phone ever had!

Why do you want to install Android 2.2???

this phone released with android 2.3.5 then i think i cant put 2.2 .

this phone net speed is too slow and battery drain quickly when net browsing. that wise i thought to go to an old android version to solve above problems.

Not really. 2.3.5 performance is better than 2.2 as far as i know. Phone was released with 2.2 first.

There is a custom Jellybean rom available. I'd suggest trying it and UNINSTALL all non needed crap and deactivate non needed background processes. Especially google's apps love to drain your battery. Also Jellybean support virtual memory. 256MB is pretty low, so setting up the Jellybean rom may help. You can go back to stock at any time flashing the stock firmware.

STOCK

JellyBean custom
