I'm super excited because the Verizon iPhone cases are totally compatible with he new iPhone 4S. For really protecting your phone I suggest Trident or Incipio. They are a little more expensive than those $1 cases, but give you a lot more protection without making the phone huge and bulky!

I have been told that cases for the iPhone4 will NOT work for the iPhone 4S (at least this is true for AT&T). The overall shape of the phone is the same, but the camera lens is a different shape. The hole for the lens on iPhone4 cases is much smaller that on cases made for iPhone4S.

Here are examples of how the two case versions look:

Well the AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4 have been different all along. The mute button on the Verizon one is a little bit lower, so a lot of cases aren't compatible. But as far as a the camera, I've heard the shape is the same. Looking at those Speck cases in the links above, it looks like just the case itself has a different cutout, not the actual phone!

I love my iPhone 4 Incipio case.

My understanding direct from Spec it is the same case

The best cases for any phone are Otterbox and GoBallistic cases! These add protection not rivled by other case makers.

The Vapor iPhone 4 case should fit since it is only wraps the perimeter.

I just talked to a "Genius" at the Mac Store and they told me if I buy an AT&T iphone 4 case I will be fine. It is the Verizon one that will not work. Ugh! I'd love to pick up a case so I have it when my phone gets here but I think I'll wait to be sure...

I splurged and bought the lifeproof (lifeproof.com) version 2 phone for the 4/4S at best buy. It's nice (even though I don't plan underwater photography. haha)

... my 4S is currently in the lifeproof and fits perfectly. Having gone from the 3GS to the 4S, I can't offer too much insight as to case-fit, but from what I've read, I believe cases made for the Verizon phone ill fit the 4S. (So, I'm assuming the Otterbox defender Universal cases will work.)

i recommend encasing it in water, concrete, or perhaps a warm vat of syrup

Has Trident made a 4s specific case for VZW yet?
