    It's practically impossible to find any Otterboxes or Specks that are 4S designed in the UK. I find it pathetically shocking.

    Has anyone found somewhere to purchase these cases?

    I'd buy direct, but both want to charge me in excess of $20 for shipping, and then want to put on a good 7.5% import tax on top.

    This leaves me paying $60+ for cases that should be $35!

    I really could do with a decent case for the arrival of my iPhone, but I'm just stretched to find anywhere reliable that'll sell. I don't mind importing, as long as I'm not being robbed blindly for FedEx Int.

    Cheers

    ^ Troll thought I haven't already checked play.com?

    Amazon, eBay, Play...

    None have 4S compatible cases.

    I heard Incipio has been handing out some that fit and some that don't.

    Actually not.
    Ive just compared a 4 and a 4s and put them in a case.
    The mute button on the 4s is slightly lower, meaning that if the 4 case fits perfect around that button it will probably not be accessible on the 4s. If you go for a 4 case which allows a bit around the mute button it should be fine.
    Alternatively buy a £2 silicone case that can be trimmed a bit then wait till they bring some better case specific ones over.

    The 4S is the same as the Verizon CDMA phone, not the AT&T or GSM phone as per the rest of the world.

    As said above if the vibrate button is a tight fit on a 4 case on AT&T/GSM it probably won't fit the new 4S. If it works with Verizon 4 it will be ok for the 4S.

    Thanks a lot people.

    I'll just grab a CDMA silicone case and then pick up a Commuter or something similar when the time comes.

    If you want to buy direct from Hong Kong you can try iworldelectronics they have great deals on branded phone cases. If there is something you want thats not htere ask them and they can probably find it for you.

    Already bought 3 cases from them already :)
