I'm looking to do some customization on my 4s but there's a lot more parts for the iPhone 4 available that are also cheeper. I want to find what parts can be interchanged. The front screens, back glass, middle plates, bezels, ext?

Not worth it. The only part from the iPhone 4 GSM that is compatible is the SIM Tray. From the iPhone 4 CDMA (Verizon) possibly the vibrate motor, nothing else worth the time or effort. Sure the Front Screens are all the same but the mounting brackets are different, not really worth the hassle unless you are doing many, many, many of these.

If you're an amateur do not try to swap parts without actual knowledge if they work (if you want advice, contact Cowboy). The 4S, iPhone 4 Verizon/CDMA, and iPhone 4 ATT/GSM all carry a different design of mounting brackets to secure the front and back glass. You will not be able to use GSM 4 parts on 4S. A lot of 4S parts are in shortage so be careful modding your iPhone (especially if you're switching the frame since there are no power button flex assemblies available).Apple Technician - Modder

@mvn but are the actual buttons like power volume and mute the same for iPhone 4 and 4s. Not the flex cables.

@mvn thanks that's a big help seeing that you can't buy just the buttons for a 4s yet and can only find them for the 4gsm and I don't have the time to take apart my phone to try and see if they work

Yeah I went to focus supply and all they had was buttons with jewels on them so I just found a set for the 4gsm so I can use the sim tray as well and the middle plate chassis I bought came with a set of matching black buttons. So il use that mute vibrate switch

did we ever get an answer on the earpiece?

well the technically the screen will work, only if you change the frame.
