How can I put my Iphone 5s on edge? Is there a tweak to turn off 4g/3G? I don't mean turn off LTE. I mean turn off 3G. Please help....

There is no function edge. You must configure 3G

I used to be able to turn off my 3G/4G on my IPhone 4S with a tweak called SBsettings. That doesn't work on the 5s. I need to put my phone on 2G/Edge. It does it automatically when i have horrible reception like always. When I turn off LTE it stays on 4G/3G. 2G gets the best reception in my area. How can I get my phone to stay on 2G?

There might be a very jerry-rigged way to do it via iFile (or SSH) and .plist editing, but it's both risky and messy...
Open up iFile or your SSH/SFTP program of choice, and navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle.bundle/carrier.plist.
Edit that .plist file, editing the field "Show3GSwitchOnCat10HW" from "Off" or "false" to "On" or "true." If that entry does not exist in your file, add it like so at the end of the file:
You may need to reset your network settings (possibly several times) for this change to take effect. Please be aware that this is a very messy, quite risky, and untested method. You may need to restore your device, losing your jailbreak, if this does not work as well as anticipated. You attempt this procedure at your own risk.
