    Hey All,

    I need some advice.. i have been looking into the metal battery covers for the iPhone and i would love to replace the battery cover of my new 4s.

    So my questions are:

    1. will changing the battery cover void the apple warranty in any way?
    2. i am thinking of changing it to this cover.. Link here

    Would that case work with the new iPhone 4s? Is there going to be an issue with the new camera? The reviews seem sound but obviously they are all for the iPhone 4.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Just don't touch or fiddle with any of the internal components. This is actually really simple to do. All you're dealing with are the two bottom screws. Takes no more than a couple of minutes.

    Sorry, linked to wrong URL. Fixed it. Also, I think the back you've chosen shouldn't give you any flash issues. A plate like the photo below would.

    Yeah I noticed that the rail system that keeps the back on when you slide it back on has changed on the 4s from the 4. Are they the same as the CDMA version or totally new?
