CDMA vs GSM replacement back cover

Whats the difference between a CDMA iPhone and a GSM iPhone back cover? Why is a GSM replacement cover not compatible with the CDMA? Do you thinks its possible to make it compatible by removing some of the mounting clips or something else?

Is this a good question?

To my knowledge they should both be compatible with each other? The only differences in the models are small hardware changes (logic board) and a different roaming frequency. Have you tried a GSM back cover on a CDMA iPhone or vice versa?

The iPhone 4 GSM and CDMA back covers are different. The mounting frame scew mounts are spaced very differently.

there's no physical difference between 4s and cdma, the difference is in the writing on the back.

CDMA is 2422

4s is 2430

jobo, you need to read the question before posting Spam. The question does nowhere mention a 4S. If you want to become a better spammer, you need to learn that the 4S is a GSM/CDMA (remember the term "world phone") Oh my, you still have a lot to learn little grasshopper. Good luck in your other job, hope you are better at that.
