These look nice and I'm considering ordering one for my iPhone 4s. Are they easy to install?

Yeah, very easy. iFixit has a video showing how to do it (on the iPhone 4). It just takes a minute. You need a Pentalobe screwdriver.
inter Milan released the backplate with their logo, but it's for the iPhone4, I'm guessing it's the same?
It's 50 euro so I wanna make sure it fits before I buy it.
That's why I was asking.

Pending word on how well they match the fit of the original, I'm all over this!
yes, me too.

Not for me to actually use but i'll put it on the shelf until next year when I sell the 4S. Then see if it drives the price of the phone up on ebay.

No, the iPhone 4 backplates don't work on the 4S; they attach differently.

I'm waiting for a white 4S backplate to become available. I'm checking iFixit's website daily.

If you get a chance please post up a pic of the two mounting configurations. Thanks.

Of the 4 and the 4S? I'm only going to replace the backplate on my 4S. I'll be sure to take some pictures of the mounting configurations and a few pictures of the phone after it is switched out.
