I bought the Otterbox defender for my iphone 4 back in October 2010. I used it until August 2011. I started having issues with the silicon getting too loose that it wasn't fitting snug and would come undone a lot in my pocket. I called Otterbox customer service to complain and they were apologetic and to my surprise sent me a new Otterbox defender. However, this one was different. It was more snug with the silicon. The sku that is on it has "uni". So basically the replacement they sent me is the Universal Otterbox defender. I sold my iphone 4 3 weeks ago and I kept the case. My iphone 4S fits fine on the Universal Otterbox defender. While Otterbox specifically sells a version for the iphone 4S that has bigger cutouts for the camera and flash and proximity sensor, my iphone 4s in the universal version shows no issues.

@derk: I am unable to send PMs because I only have 3 posts (including this one) I actually made this account just so I could talk to you! LOL
To answer your PM:
I have a white iPhone 4S
I want to use the Universal Otterbox for the iPhone4 (Pink and White)
I REALLY do not like the colors of the iPhone 4S cases
I heard that the iPhone 4 cases are not compatible with the iPhone 4S because of a proximity sensor? They say that when you are in a call that the light does not go off and your cheeks can press buttons on the screen
I made a thread about this maybe you can help me in that thread so we can communicate better
I cant even post a link to the thread because I have too few posts !

I was a fan of otter box until I found out about lifeproof. I mean can any of you guys using the otter box take your phone down to the beach and take it snorkeling with you? Cause I can and did and while I wasn't filming underwater wildlife in 1080p hi def I was listening to music. Talk about awesome.

When I'm swimming having a good time with my family I don't want to have to worry about my phone.
Some people do not like the life proof. I'm one of those people that absolutely do not like it. Again, I'm all about the OB defenders and speck cs cases.

I had the first Otterbox Defender with the 2 openings for camera/flash and the 2 openings for the prox sensor and earpiece. I eventually gave it to my brother-in-law. Today, I picked up the redesigned one with the one large opening on the front and one large opening on back. I love it. It feels as though the silicone is tighter which is a great thing!!

I have the lifeproof case and love it. Their customer service is top notch! I am
Not brave enough to go swimming with it but I am comfortable knowing that if it falls into a body of water I am safe.
