Arduino and scavenged LCDs Answered

Hey guys i've recently received an Arduino Uno (tech-mas gifts !) and have started trying stuff out, i also had 2 old cellphones that i hadn't used for years, so i scavenged the vibrators and screens and left the rest untouched(no ripping appart, worry not) now i see that the screens both have a plastic thing with a lot if very tiny pins sticking out of them, and i wonder if there would be any way i can connect these to the arduino and use them as displays (was thinking of a smart-not-phone, wich does all the funny stuff a smartphone does without the phonecalls), please keep in mind i have a very basic set of tools (the arduino, a breadboard and the "starter pack"(with leds resistors ect...), plus a soldering iron, and would like to keep this project salvage based if possible (no money for smart-not-phones)

info i could find on the displays:
1st one is a LMS240GF12,(non touchscreen) i couldnt find any info on this model but a few similar displays with lms241 or 242 names exist, so i guess the specs should be similar ?

2nd one is the touchscreen that came with a HTC Wildfire phone, and i think the display serial would be A3333 G8 but i'm not sure, none of the information is labelled and internet has been of little help as of now ^^.

If you have any tips or need more info i'll be glad to receive them

No info, no pinout, no Arduino library - no use for the display.
