Destroyed screw of iPhone 5.


I just destroyed one screw of the screws on the bottom. It's totally smooth (don't know how to say it in english)

I can screw and screw and screw and nothing happens.

How can I get that screw out?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Try to change a screwdriver or use the flat/slotted screwdriver.

I have that same problem. Were you able to remove the screw? If so, any suggestions? Both of my bottom screws are that way and I need to remove the new battery and put the old one back in.
