    I am needing a quality screwdriver, and I do not know any good brands. I took apart a 3GS and it ate up my cheapo 00 phillips. I do not want to spend a fortune. Or perhaps recommend me a great precision screwdriver set.

    Check iFixit.com . They offer competitively priced, quality toolsets.

    I use Wiha brand like this. Good quality with hardened steel tips. Cheaper brands do not have the hardened tip and will strip the screw head.

    What ^ said. A cheap set will strip the screw head really, really quick.

    I picked up a quality precision screwdriver set at sears with about 18 bits (or whatever) for about $20.

    Picked up a pentalobe driver on Amazon for about $5.

    I just went to frys and bought the iOS repair kit. Best thing ever I was using cheap ones from dollar tree... they fit perfect even in the new iPhene 4 and 4S anti tamper screws!
