Ok im thinking its the screwdriver set I just got. it was pretty cheap. whats the best brand to buy for the IPhones? need one with a strong magnet, noticed the last two I tried were way to weak for the case screws and even worse the 2.3mm size ones. Suggestions?

The screws are Philips #00. Take the iPhone to the Hardware store and demo a few screwdrivers right there. Actually I have had luck at the 99cent Store they sell the cheap kits with about 10 mini screwdrivers, often two of the Philips from the kit will work perfect with the iPhone, again demo on iPhone in the store first.

Regarding magnetic screwdriver, never buy one. Take any magnet, even a refrigerator magnet, and run it along the screwdriver pulling it straight off the tip. Do it a couple of times for greater strength (will last for months). To demagnetize run the magnet the other way.
