An example of Apple's attention to detail. The phone speaker location decision:
Veteran game developer Glenn Corpses says iPhone 4 to 4S leap is bigger than the iPhone 3 to 3GS
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2011So you can use it on both systemsIf I am not mistaken, if you buy your iPhone 4S on a CDMA network, you are also able to use it on GSM.
The part I am not so sure about, is if you buy iPhone 4S on a GSM network, can you use it on a CDMA network. So far, in this second scenario the answer is no. I may be wrong of course, but I looked around a lot for this answer.
Again, this is not because of Apple, but CDMA networks, which are more strict about phones on their network.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2011Yes you can No, you cannot. It is only posible if you activated the iPhone 4S as a CDMA phone. In Singapore it is activated as a GSM phone.
From Apple http://www.apple.com/iphone/compare-iphones/
CDMA available only if iPhone 4S is sold and activated for use on a CDMA network.
However, an iPhone 4S activated as a CDMA on the other hand, will be able to roam using the GSM networks using sim cards.
This limitation, as I said, is nothing to do with Apple, but it is to do with how CDMA operators operate.

Lets see which phone comes to beat it . . .
. . . May be in a decade or so . . .
. . . Or never !!!
I had the iphone 4 now have the iphone 4s.
Camera is alot better, more crisp n clear
phone is def quicker when texting, opening app's etc
i use siri for texting & as long as you speak clearly it will write just what you say
i charge my battery every night after playing my games, i used to charge the 4 every night so no difference there
i went for the white as i had the black before so it looks newer to me
overall i am very happy with the 4s & glad i sold my 4 to purchase this one.

computercareggn, 03 Nov 2011Apple is destroying it's reputation and image itself by launching many kinds of iphone like 2G... moreThank god you are not the marketing director of Apple, they recently became the most valuable company on earth, and are selling Iphone4 in record millions,
connect your brain before you make such statements
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2011Don't bother with the 4S, save yourself like $200 and just get a 4. Who needs siri?I agree i have got a second hand iphone 4 saving loads of money and updated to IOS 5..I will jump to iphone 6 straight away and saving up now.I reckon that the sixth model will be here in July with A6 chip and curved glass,,i do hope they dont go Android like and lose that middle button..
Most phones take 12-18 months to develop so the iphone 4 is already past design stage..Only these companys know what happening so that samsung sgs4 is already been drafted and samsungs nexus4 is already drafted...I cannot be lying because there is no other way to build fones..So when folk were enjoying sgs the sgs2 was already nearing been built ready for tests and the iphone 4s was already in development when the iphone 4 was just out the door..
I do find it hard to grasp this concept that the smartfones coming out in februry 1013 are alrerady on the drawing board right at this moment..Strange feeling..
Apple is destroying it's reputation and image itself by launching many kinds of iphone like 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S. It is doing the same as the other companies do. Other are launching so many model and decreasing the price and loosing the value of product. Apple was unique when it had only iphone2, Apple should keep one or two model in the market so that its uniqueness and popularity can remain continue... Other companies are launching many models for one phone and decreasing the price day by day after that apple does the same then what difference will be left between others and apple. Thank you
I have the phone, the specs says woldphone but can anyone please advise if I can switch it from the current GSM kinds(presently in Singapore) to CDMA(when I move to US).
