    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say "no".
    Everything looked REALLY snug inside the iPhone 4S from when I replaced my battery, so each phones case/body is probably perfectly designed to fit its respective components.
    Although I'm sure with enough ingenuity you could make a body that looks like a 3GS but fits the internals of a 4, although I'm sure it wouldn't be as durable, light, or otherwise perfect as the original body is.

    Would be cool to see though.

    Ask the NSA
    Even if you succeeded, the 3GS had a sim card slot at the top, and no flash hole, just saying.

    Anything is possible if you throw enough money at it. Even SIM slot can be relocated. Most of the phone's innards is taken by the battery so if ur willing to live with a smaller capacity battery......

    But the realistic, who would want to go to that kind of trouble answer is, NO.
