    I'm trying to find a white bumper for my spare iPhone 4S anyone know where they sell any? So far I've bought one on eBay but arrived to fit the iPhone 4

    And when I mention to the seller that the 4 & 4S has a difference where the mute switch is there's no word for it lol

    If anyone can help here let me know

    Yup I didn't either till I received a bumper and saw this...

    All eBay sellers are selling Bumpers advertised as iPhone 4 / 4S Lol

    To make it even worse, the CDMA version of the 4 that came out for Verizon (and Sprint) a bit later has the external design of the 4s.

    Well, I don't think it applies to the 4, but since 4s or at least 5 the CDMA versions were ones that supported GSM as well so in a sense they were either the same or potentially even more capable as far as being able to support more carriers. That said, that part of it is ultimately kind of neither here nor there as far as this bumper/case type of doscussion goes.

    when I was looking at purchasing a iPhone 4 some years ago I thought buying from America would be cheaper it's where I learnt about that CDMA marlarky

    it's a shame that it's only limited to work in USA I think all providers should sell phones that are unlockable at the end of agreement and be able to use them wherever they go!

    I don't think I'm in luck to get a 4S bumper I might have to grab a Stanley knife and try and enlarge that mute switch area on that iPhone 4 bumper

    It just depends on the carrier and what technology the carrier uses. There are other CDMA providers in the world where the phone would work. And thankfully they changed it right after the initial 4 version so that the CDMA version would also support GSM.

    They're expensive but Apple still sells them. They sell one for the 4 and 4S; the slot around the switch is just enlarged so that it works for both phones.

    Not one that just supports CDMA and not GSM (the few CDMA providers are mostly in US, Japan, and I think just a few other places in the world).

    They don't seem to be stocked in stores anymore in the US but at least they're still available for now: http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MC839ZM/B/apple-iphone-4-bumper-black
    Black appears to be the only color option.

    Yeah prob the same for the UK as well
    I'd have to check with Apple bout this one cos it has no option for either phone like those ones on eBay

    Like I said, this bumper works with both the 4 and 4S. Apple made the slot around the switch larger so it fits both of them.
