Verizon iPhone antenna redesign means your AT&T cases will not fit

You have heard rumors about it, youasked for it and finally the Verizon iPhone is here. But it is notexactly the same handset that AT&T has – while the redesignedantenna might get you rid of the “death grip” issue, it alsoforced the volume and mute controls to be pushed slightly lower,which renders most of the current cases for the iPhone 4 useless.

Some cases have a single wider openingfor both the volume buttons and the mute switch and might still dothe job, but others, including Apple's own bumpers won't be a goodfit. Hopefully, with the CDMA antenna's redesign, the bumper caseswill not be that needed, but still take this into account if youdecide to switch from AT&T.
