    A quick Google search for "Nokia 3310 lcd" returned about 803,000 hits.

    This page looks promising:
    http://www.scienceprog.com/connect-nokia-3310-lcd-to-lpt-port/
    It's using a PC LPT port to control the display, but at least shows what your minimum connections are, and also provides a link to the display controller manual.

    Here's a page where someone connected a PIC18F to the display:

    Here someone connected the display to a PIC12F683:

    Adding PIC to the Google query gives about 110,000 hits.

    I can't tell you that, because I don't know how much memory a PIC16F84 has offhand.

    If memory is limited, you will need to use the character mode (if it has one) of the 3310 LCD. If the 3310 does not have a character mode and memory is limited, you might not be able to use a PIC16F84A.
