    white iPhone 4 Case compatability
    Hi, I'm Ashlee.
    I am going to buy Verzion's white iPhone 4, but before I do so I want to buy a case so I do not scratch it up.
    When I am looking online many cases say "black iPhone 4 compatible only", and others just say "iPhone 4 compatible".
    This makes me nervous because I do not want to buy the wrong kind of case.
    Do the ones that say "black iPhone 4 compatible only" really only fit the black iPhone? Are there any significant differences between the two iPhone colors or will I be safe buying any kind of iPhone 4 case?
    Please help

    I have the white at&t iphone 4, after buying the otterbox defender series (50$ @BestBuy) i come to understand that the sensor that shuts the screen off while you are in a phone call... is in a diff spot.. so basically i face dial when im on the phone with people.. or i hit facetime @ the same time, or put them on hold.. its annoying.. i have grown accustomed to not doing it but i wish i didn't have to worry about it.. i am going to return it soon..

    it seems like it is in the same spot as my wife's black iphone 4 but idk..

    have have found a few cases but no reviews for specifically the white iphone 4, let alont the verizon version of said device..

    i like that one but i havent looked for it anywhere to buy

    there are these ones..

    ion-factory

    the iphone 4 cases are on the bottom right.. once again idk about the compatibility with the white ones/verizon's phone..

    i really favor the first link because there isnt any plastic cover the facetime camera/speaker and sensor..

    as for your dilemma regarding what kind to buy that fit.. im willing to bet that they all FIT, but the sensor at the top will be possibly
    be sketchy if there is any plastic covering it.. but one try it and return it if it doenst work

    I just purchased a white iPhone 4 for my mother a couple of weeks ago when they came out. I also purchased several cases for her from my favorite online vendor. (I could afford to purchase several because their prices are insanely reasonable.) All of the cases made no distinction between the black or the white iPhone 4, and they all work perfectly.

    I purchased a white silicon skin, a clear diamond pattern silicon skin, and a genuine leather wallet for the iPhone for my mother. All three came out to less than $30. The quality is first rate!
