    I have been surfing for some cases for the new 4S I am about to preorder. I am noticing that some sites just have the 4/4S case and they aren't seperated by carrier anymore.

    Are they finally going to all use the same body of phone??? By that I mean are all the phones going to be exactly the same with the same shell???

    I know when the Verizon ip4 dropped the casing was slightly different as far as the buttons matching up on the outside from Verizon to At&t. Are they now all the same???

    From what I heard on iPhone live is that the 4S is the same as the VZW iPhone.

    "And iPhone 4S is a world phone, so you can use it almost anywhere. Whether you're a GSM or CDMA customer, you can roam GSM networks in 200 countries around the world."

    I would assume this means one phone, all carriers. Bodies would be exactly the same. Am I wrong?

    That would make sense since now the 4S is a world phone with GSM and CDMA built into the device - there's no need to ship different devices for different carriers.

    Im curious to know if you buy it through Verizon can you put a micro sim and use it in another country instead of just roaming. I can only assume roaming will be expensive and with slow data rates.
    Im sure you will have to do a carrier unlock but will that be all?

    It will have to be carrier unlocked. That should do it.

    Since there has been slight body changes in the past (ATT vs Verizon) i'm just going to hold off on buying any cases...makes no sense...
