Is there a method to bend LCD/LED displays and have them still work? Answered

I mean the small LCD/LED displays commonly found in cell phones.

The solid back-lit modules cannot be bent without damaging them, because they are made with glass.

Newer OLED displays can be manufactured on a flexible substrate -- there's even a new cel phone with a curved display...but they are a) rare, b) expensive c) very specialized.

so, it can be done, but its not feasible for the end user.

Is there a source that currently sells these flexible OLED displays? even if I had to buy in bulk?
