You CAN use a cdma digitizer in the 4s models, there is only one tab that needs to be easily clipped off and one tab on corner that needs the hole slightly ovaled more with a dremel or just not put a screw in that one. (And I mean slightly, very little dremeling required)
Watch my video here.

Nice Video, thanks for the clear and detailed information. Especially regarding the corner tab difference. Could you also compare the CDMA (Verizon) back cover and the 4S back cover? Some say they are interchangeable and fit perfect, others say there are very slight differences?

sure, I will order some fancy back cover replacements for myself and we will take a look. I will post back as soon as I receive parts.

LoL I am already working on this solution as well but I do not see replacement parts for the phone offered yet, and I do not know anybody with one yet. I will make a call to my nerd friends and see if they know the answer.
PS I have ordered cdma and a 4s back door they will arive soon, I heard that they will NOT interchange, BUT they said that about alot of apple products, I will see if a slight mod can make it work or if i can remove the back frame from the back glass, the back cover is glass on plastic and the glass is painted, so as long as it does not mar the paint you will not see the frame swap with double side sticky tape. (IN THEORY)

4S colored conversion kits are out, are you trying to make a color that isn't available or you just want to use what you have? I just converted this a couple days ago. See the photos of Siri

There you have it, Dee9299 says that the cdma will fit new 4s. I will post pics to verify. This is good news, it would be terrible if you needed 4 differnet back glasses for mods as well. The mid frames on all these are diff as well. so confusing LoL.

^^ You're wrong. the CDMA Back glass WILL NOT FIT the iPhone 4s.
I know from personal experience, as well as iFixit has also confirmed it.
Just wanted to throw that out there.
