PSA: iPhone 4 back cover is not compatible with iPhone 4S
So i ordered an iPhone 4 back cover (transparent one) back in August...it was like $10 with a screwdriver so i wasn't too worried about the tiny investment if it looked like crap. Well, unknown to me was the fact that it was on back order for like a month, and having completely forgotten about it, i was surprised to find it in my mailbox yesterday with a letter apologizing for the delay.
I was pretty excited, since i assumed the back cover would easily go on the 4S, since it seems most of the other things available for the iPhone 4 will work on the 4S. Unfortunately, this is not the case...the clips on the back cover do not line up at all, and it will not mount properly, making it useless for the 4S.
I tried emailing the company but they are somewhere in China and probably don't care, so i just wanted to put a public service announcement out there...if you order a replacement back cover for your iPhone 4S...make sure it is for the 4S, and not for the iPhone 4, as the two are not compatible with each other.
