    So a sprint iphone 4s has sim card slot just like the ATnT one. Are you saying the slots are in different locations?

    The 4s is the same for sprint AT&T and Verizon. It's all the same phone.

    The 4 gsm and CDMA are different.
    Sprint and Verizon use the same middle frame. And AT&T uses a different one.

    And I do have a 4s black middle frame that I bought 2 of for sale if your interested in that

    For the 4s everything is the same the buttons are in the same exact spots I'm assuming you have the 4s?

    Then every part you get that's for a 4s will work. 4s is the same phone no matter what carrier.
    What color middle frame are you looking for?

    How much are you selling the mid frame for? It's for the 4S, right?

    For the 4S apple combined the GSM and CDMA technology into the single unit so there is only one type of 4s that works on both gsm and CDMA networks.

    For the iPhone 4 there are separate GSM and CDMA handsets hence different parts. A GSM iPhone 4 won't work on a CDMA network and vice versa

    No.

    Think of it this way.

    iPhone 4 (AT&T) - Version 1 Frame
    iPhone 4 (Verizon/Sprint) - Version 2 Frame
    iPhone 4S (All Carriers) - Version 3 Frame

    Each one is unique in its own way.
