    Did apple redesign the bumper after the original release? The iPhone 4s mute switch is slightly lower than the original iPhone 4.

    Does this seem to be a problem for many cases?

    It is a problem for a lot of cases. The Verizon iP4 has the mute switch in the same place.

    Yes they did do a slight modification to the bumper when the Verizon iPhone came out. The new model does fit the 4S, I'm using a white one now.

    You can trim vibrate button opening little bit, if you wish.

    Are these bumpers still leaving scratches on the antenna band? Wouldn't mind picking up a black one for my white 4s.

    bumper scratches

    Yeah I used the bumper on my iPhone 4 for a while and then noticed it had scratched the band because of dust and dirt that gets under it. After that I just went raw with a skin to protect the back when I set it down. Fits much better in my pocket without a case.

    I have a bumper purchased a few weeks before the 4s came out and it fits fine.
