Really Philipps/phillips/philips PH00 screws instead of PH000?


when I look at the screw in my iPhone 3G the size of the screws seems to differ a bit. The botton two are smaller than the inner ones, and the two holding the vibrator seem to be somewhere in between. I tried to unscrew them with a PH00 screw driver but it does not fit and I don't want to ruin the screw head. On your tutorial you describe all screws as PH00. Can you confirm that, please?

It would be helpful to correct the spelling to Phillips (two "l", one "p").

The name comes from the Phillips Screw Company, which patented the drive shape in the 1930s.


yeah, we all know this, but not all people that search for these sort of questions do, and we don't want to lose a good answer just because someone doesn't know there is a difference. We'll put it in the tags, then everyone is happy!

I believe you are quiet right as the i fix it screw driver shipped was useless for me as well but a PH000 worked I had worked. Strange isn't it.

Thanks John,

after gets my hands on a PH00 and PH000 I can definitely say PH000 is the better choice.


My 3G uses a #000 phillips screw as well not the #00 in the bottom.
