    Is there any physical design difference between iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s, such as a different material for the apple on the back or does it say it anywhere on the phone??

    The only physical difference is one of the antennas has shifted to the side of the iPhone with the SIM card holder. This makes it different than the GSM iPhone 4, but not the CDMA iPhone 4.

    Yes, you can. Just one of the breaks in the antenna moved.

    If you're aiming for what I think you are, I'd suggest to talk to Siri as loud and often as possible at public places. So nobody can miss that it's the *new* iPhone 4S. ;)

    Nothing anyone would notice. Go ahead and impress your friends with your new iPhone 4s! (they'll never know!)

    You can tell the difference from an iPhone 4 because it will have two 'bands' on the side of the vibrate switch, and a SIM card insert on the other side of the phone.

    The iPhone 4 either has either one or the other - not both, as the 4S does.

    Perhaps he's looking for a way to verify that the craigslist phone is 4s and not 4.

    Will the AT&T cases be different from the iPhone 4?

    According to the Apple Store FAQ?

    Do existing iPhone 4 accessories work with the new iPhone 4S?

    Yes, all iPhone 4 accessories work with iPhone 4S.

    So if I buy a Verizon 4 iPhone case now will it work on my new Verizon 4S phone?

    So do the antenna breaks in the 4s follow the verizon iphone 4 then? I want to get some decals for the side if they do...
