    I am currently trying to make my device able to tether:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1835098

    I am hoping that if I jailbreak there will be something that can allow me to tether bypassing the tmobile monthly 2.5gb limit with my unlimited internet for the phone.

    With that said if I jailbreak 7.0.6 will I be able to restore it back to the way it was if I ever need to?

    You will be able to restore back to the currently signed iOS version, not 7.0.6

    You can use iLexRat, to keep 7.0.6 and clean jailbreak. As for restore, see above...

    In the past I think it was with 4.3.5 I was never able to get it restored back.
    It bricked every time and would only turn back on if I rejailbroke it for 4.3.5

    I just want to make certain my phone does not become garbage

    Copy and Pasting. I don't need the hotspot thing to pop up in my settings. It is already there. I need to create a hotspot so tmobile thinks I am just using my regular phone internet.
    Maybe one of you can help me:

    "My job requires me to travel a lot. To a lot of places that don't have wifi or any type of easily usable way for me to connect to the internet. For the past year I have used about 30gb a month tethering my iPhone 5s running iOS 7.0.6 on the Tmobile network. Just using the regular tethering. All of a sudden my tethering was shut off. I called Tmobile and they told me it was a "glitch" that I had been able to use so much tethering every month. I was informed that I can only use 2.5gb per month. Even though I pay for unlimited internet from them. I leave for an important trip tomorrow night where I will need to use the internet for everything I do.

    Does anyone know a workaround to make my phone able to tether again? So it only thinks it is using internet on the phone and not tethering.
    5 years ago I jailbroke my old 3gs and was able to trick AT&T so I that I could tether without them knowing. I am sure something is possible to do for Tmobile on a 5s.
    There are many guides and how to videos explaining how to do this easily with a android device that is rooted. But I cannot find the equivalent for the iPhone.

    Any help is much appreciated. If I need to Jailbreak my device I just need to be certain I can restore it to the way it originally was eventually.
    Thanks in advance"
