Re: Otterbox defender for iphone 4S

It looks like it is a different case.  Some of the switches are moved on the 4S.  http://www.otterbox.com/apple-iphone-cases/apple-iphone-cases,default,sc.html

Are the switches actually moved or just slightly realigned? Like a little lower or higher, more to the left or right? It doesn't appear to be different, but perhaps it is.

OtterBox's website specifically differentiates between iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S cases. They have separate categories for each.

 

I ordered one of the Camo Blaze models for my new phone Smiley Happy

i ordered the otterbox defender as well. some otterbox cases are compatible for both the 4 and 4S, just not the defender series. but did anyone else see that otterbox wont ship the orders until the 14th? i wish they would ship now so when i get the iphone on the 14th i would have a case right away.

Re: Otterbox defender for iphone 4S

Based on some pictures that I cannot find right now, the buttons are just moved down. If you already have an Otterbox, try it and see if you can get to the controls but I see a lot of companies with new versions for the 4s and/or selling a case with larger openings for the silence switch.

Also note that the 4s case on their site shows a larger opening at the top front face. Not sure why?

Re: Otterbox defender for iphone 4S

They are different.  I bought the Otterbox Defender for the Iphone 4 and put it on my new 4S.  Trust me when I tell you it fits and everything functions 100%.  Otterbox(which I like) and many other companies want you to get a new case even if you are upgrading from 4 to 4S.

 

The going price for the Ottterbox 4S case is $50.

 

The Sam's Club price for the Otterbox 4 is $40 and works perfectly.

 

Or, if you can wait, order the Otterbox 4 case through Amazon for $15 bucks
