Help Looking for screwdriver to open Nokia phone

I've been looking all over for a screwdriver that will open the funny little screws on all the nokia phones that we have. Any one know if there's a specific on available on the internet or somewhere for sale. I've tried all types of screwdrivers, but i guess it requires something unique.

I had exactly the same problem, and after a fruitless trip to a couple of local hardware stores I came up with the following makeshift solution:

Take one flathead jewellers screwdriver (the type with the swivel top is ideal) with a head thats slightly too wide to fit the screw and grind it down until it fits in the screw... :P Sounds like a cowboy job i know..and it is..but it works

If it's the same size as the screws on a 3210 (I don't wish to open my 7650 to find out) it'll be a Torx head, size T6.
I bought one ages back from a company on the web that sold phone modding kits. LEDs and vibra motors, that sort of thing.
