Use a soldering iron with a very thin tip, i use this method but just watch your temperatures.

MAKE SURE YOU TIN THE TIP OF THE IRON PROPERLY OR THIS WILL NOT WORK.

Hold the phone in a clamp or vice as you will need both hands for this.

Place the hot iron on the screw head, use very thin solder between the screw and the tip of the iron, as soon as it melts TURN THE SOLDERING IRON OFF and hold it still for around 5-10 sec then simply turn the phone or iron anti clockwise and it will unscrew the screw.

It will take a very very small amount of solder so be very careful not to let it flow over the head especially on the screws in the base.

Good luck and watch your temperatures.
