    Has anybody tried putting a different back cover on the 4S, I found a few covers that I like but they say to only be compatible with the iPhone 4
    I still can't post link but I found it at ecaseshop .com

    Back panels for the Verizon 4 fit the 4S. I've used iphone4parts and can recommend. They also have "coming soon" set for 4S parts, but I ordered two Verizon 4 backs and they both fit fine on my 4S.

    I've ordered from CNN a few times -- only complaint I have is the items come from overseas so they take a while to get here and they have to be signed for at delivery.

    Do you know if the Verizon is different than the AT&T? Personally, I find the whole issue with different carriers having different size stuff is ridiculous..

    I'll have to check out that site.. I am on AT&T and just wonder if a Verizon one would fit an AT&T phone.



    Nevermind.. I just found on that site the link to the AT&T stuff... :o

    Yup... that is a drawback to the site... but they typically have good products.

    The backs have different clips .. So the Verizon won't work on AT&T and vis versa I think it's do too the phones antennas and lay out that are diff between the AT&T 4 and Verizon 4

    Exactly... and also the reason V iP4 backs fit any of the 4S models (as far as I know) is because the 4S chasis is based on the V iP4

    All 4s are the same so Verizon backs will fit 4s not iPhone 4 AT&T backs because we know those are diff

    So, from all this.. the AT&T 4 back cover "should" fit the AT&T 4S? Is that what I am reading here? Pelligro911.. throw some commas and punctuation in there, so it makes it easier to read your comments... please? Sometimes I get confused with what you are saying... All good information for sure, but hard to decipher sometimes. thx...

    There seems to be some discrepancy between information....

    So has anyone used a IP4 back cover (any carrier) on an ATT 4S...successfully?? If so, where was it purchased?

    Sorry I kinda ramble ,

    Someone stated that the iPhone 4 Verizon back fits the 4S , if this is true , we know for a fact that the iPhone 4 AT&T back doesn't fit the iPhone 4 Verizon
    Based on this information any AT&T backing will not fit any 4S remember all 4S are the same regardless of carrier ...

    I will put a end to all this .. I'll take the back off my 4S ... And see if my Verizon iPhone 4 original back works .. Then I will try to put a after market AT&T on my 4S
    I will let you know why or why not with pics

    No worries..

    That would be awesome.. but after seeing the post above that CNN now offers 4s cases.. it would still be interesting to know what IP4 back covers fit the 4s phones.

    well that wont be for a couple of weeks.. since it takes about that long for them to ship from China.. but regardless, looking forward to the review once you do get it.
