    Will the 4S use the same cases as the Verizon iPhone 4, the AT&T iPhone 4, or has something small changed which will necessitate a new case tweak?

    Thanks!

    I recall the Verizon iPhone was slightly different than the GSM version requiring some case makers to offer a different model. It would seem the 4S is now the previous CDMA version (which was rumored to be world phone capable but disabled). So now the question is will we need to keep a close on on certain cases?

    Thanks Fausty !! I was wondering this also, because I'm still interested in moving on to an iP as well. Now that the iP4S will be avail soon, i need to think more about it because i'm still so very on the fence about the switch, for the past 2mths now lol.
    BUT if i definately decide to make the switch, i always like to have my accessories in line-ie.screen cover, phone cover.....to protect my investment

    The BASIC cases will work fine.

    However, the more secure cases like the Otterboxes may not. In fact, for many of their popular iPhone 4 cases, they have in bold print "Will NOT work on a 4S".

    (No reason why, but they made sure they posted it with their items to avoid any issues with unhappy customers...)

    So, if you're looking for one of those expensive cases, make sure you read the fine print.

    But if you just get a cheap, rubber case with a slap-on screen protector, it'll probably be fine.

    Mophie has posted on their website that their Juice Pack Air and Juice Pack Plus cases will fit the 4S. They make a great product, and have good customer service too.

    Most of the online suppliers will mark out wether the iPhone 4 case fits the iPhone 4S case, if there is no mark, usually, the two cases are compatible unless that shop is not standard. So don't worry, and good luck!

    I had an Otterbox Commuter case on my iP4 and loved it. When my new iP4S finally came in ( 29 days of waiting !!! ) I put my old Commuter case on it. Thought it fit perfectly until I noticed that the silent switch on the side didn't linne up. Ended up buying a new one and the switch lined up perfectly with the opening.

    I bought a SPECK case for my 4S, the hole where the mute button goes is a bit higher, it does not bother because I don't put it on mute/vibrate often, but it gets to me when I see that the button is a bit under the cover.

    My preferred case companies are Beyza and Fortte (more expensive, but quality. They are true cases, not the "cover the sides" type that they sell in the Verizon stores). They offer 4 and 4s cases, but they're probably the same. You don't need screen covers with these. I hate screen covers (I've used them all trust me). They get dirty faster, and smudge, which makes sense because you are covering a high quality glass screen with lower quality soft plastic.

    I agree with Cleveland 100%!! The new Commuter cases seem to be a little off though. I purchased one a couple weeks ago and the cutouts in the silicone didn't match up with the hard plastic shell. I ended up opting for the Defender case instead. It's awesome!! A friend of mine has the iPhone 4 model and they definitely upgraded the cases for the 4S. The silicone is much thicker and less pliable (a good thing - especially for the charging, mute and headphone covers). I highly recommend the Defender!!

    There is a chance they packaged the old iPhone 4 silicone with the new plastic cover for the 4S ... But I love them both ... Especially the new color schemes

    I used to swear by Sedio cases, after I gave my first gen iPhone to my daughter (moved to BB and then Android before coming back). Loved the feel and the protection they offered. So imagine how disappointed I was in the cheap feel of the case the Surface for iPhone is.

    I would love to find something that works with the rotating belt clip (these are solid), and does not come undone every time I press the lock button on the phone

    The iPhone cases of my choice are (2) all silicone cases, 1 Incipio Silicrylic case, and I'm waiting on a SwitchEasy silicone case in milk white I ordered from AccessoryGeeks which should be here by next week

    In the near future I will also be looking into a fully blinged out HK case as well as a case from more-thing.com

    I initially bought the OB Commuter case but really wasn't crazy about the high ridges along the sides on the front of the phone. I was having a difficult time typing the letters that were along the right- and left-hand edges of the keyboard. I now have two of the Uncommon cases that I bought at the Apple store, and a really cool Incase (very solid slider case that's sparkly purple) that I bought at Target. I enjoy changing up my cases every so often. I think I dressed too many dolls when I was a little girl!

    I got a grey/white Otterbox Defender 4s and while the look is everything I wanted, the worksmanship and customer service is not there. My bottom flap does not stay shut which was evident when I took it out of the package. Also the headphone hole does not line up with the hole cutout, it is reversed, so the hole is worthless, you have to lift up the flap entirely to plug in headphones. Pretty crappy build quality for a $50 case! And after calling and talking to customer service they will not outright replace the case, say they will only replace the outside rubber, of which they have none of so I have to wait with my new case taped up until they get replacement pieces to ship me out one. Very disappointing.Wanted to share in case anyone else was debating the Defender 4s. I'm now looking for my next case to go to.

    weird that you had that issue.. I have owned about 4 defenders on different model phones over the time and only had a problem with one of them and when i did have a problem they sent me out a new one right away and didnt even take the old one back..

    The Otterbox Defender for the iPhone 4 fits the 4s fine, The only difference is the cutout window around the camera lenses which are more opened, apparently to allow for easier access and cleaning. I have used both.

    I do like the 4s case better as the rubber/external rbber case seems to be a lot denser and stiffer, and stays on the internal frame better. I found that this makes the button on the case that depresses the home button on the phone to work better.

    But the commuter case the silicone cutout for the silent toggle is much bigger die to thy moved it ever so slightly down on the device

    The hole isn't for the headphones, it's for the noise-cancelling mic. That's why it's on the other side.

    As for the flap, try folding it over, then pushing it in. It usually seats fine when I do that, just have to get the edge under the plastic.
