Default New Monitor or Cell Phone

Its my birthday in exactly a week. I am either going to get a new cell phone, or a new Monitor. I know which cell phone id get, but i wouldnt be too sure on the monitor, if it was 22" itd be the dell ultrasharp one, but i was thinking maybe seeing if theres anything bigger for a little bit more. So any input and or some links to some monitors would be appreciated.


OK, its either one of these 2 monitors: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824255003 Westinghouse 22" OR http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...9&sku=320-6107 Dell Ultrasharp 22"

Against the MOTO Q 9c: http://direct.motorola.com/ens/MotoQ...roductid=30729

do you currently own a phone? if so, i'd say get the monitor. Also it depends on whether you're going to be using that new phone for business or more to text/im friends or other casual stuff. i'd say if u NEED a phone at those standards, get that, other wise get the monitor

Cells are packed full of features that are cool for a week, but never used again. Cell phones are great for calling and texting, and I'm sure your current one can do it just fine.

Get the monitor.

If you have an unlimitated data plan then get the cell phone, otherwise I'd say the monitor.

I agree, I just got a BlackBerry 8700g from T-Mobile about 3 months ago, and I wish I had invested the money into a touch-screen or Smartphone with a touch-screen. Then I really wished I had something with Windows Mobile. Damm two-year contracts.
