    Default Help on Getting my Hotspot Back
    I've seen a couple of threads on this but they haven't really been helpful.

    So, i have a factory unlocked 4s....I have the old Tzones plan. When the carrier update was forced on me a few months ago, i lost my hotspot.

    At my house i finally get "4g" with the re-farm, and so I'd like to use my iphone as a hotspot and not pay for internet service at home.

    i'm running 6.1.3 but am NOT jailbroken so 'tether me" is not an option.

    I do have a back-up from March 2013 that should have the old carrier bundle....but, if i restore to that back up, will the update just be forced right back? (as some on different threads have said)

    Additionally, with the release of 7.0 now, if i restore to that march back up and then update to 7.0, will that undo my tether again (assuming the march restore puts it back.)

    Just not sure what to do:

    1. Stay on 6.1.3 and try the March update, or (per icarified, there might be a jailbreak for 6.1.3 released and then i could use "tetherme")

    2. update to 7.0 and THEN restore from the March back up?

    4. just update to 7.0 and wait on a jaibreak and then use "tether me" app? (but this could be months).

    5. restore from the march back up and THEN update to 7.0?




    I called tmobile they say they can't restore my hotspot without changing my data plan...i can actually change the plan, get unlimited phone data (with no throttling) and a hot spot for $1 less per month, but the hotspot only gives you 2.5g per month before throttling, and i know if i could just get the hotspot back without changing plans it'll be unlimited too.

    Any help or direction on what I should do is appreciated.

    I use a tweak in Cydia called "TetherMe", works great and no add'l charge from T-Mo.

    Right but as I said above i'm not jailbroken so I can't get access to "TetherMe". I need a non-JB solution.

    oops, missed that. Not sure there is much you can do then.
