Need a recommendation for a phone that will run with Exchange

I've just set up a Small Business Server with Exchange 2003 in my new small business. I'm looking for a static phone that will connect to Exchange to use the Global Address list. Other desirable features would be VOIP, an inbuilt answerphone and possibly a wireless headset feature. I know I'm asking a lot, but if anyone can make a recommendation I'd be happy!

They are networked, yes. Do you have a small office or large? My org has 300 or so users and we have the cisco phones. There's more to them than just connecting them and using them. There is software needed to manage them, associate them with the domain, as well as integrate with Exchange. I would recommend calling a CISCO rep (sorry) to get the nitty gritty on how to implement. It's pretty intuitive.

Hello AdoBeebo,

Get it wth windows mobile 6 - then you will have no problem importing certificates on it - If your in the UK look at a TMobile Vario III (a rebadged HTC Kasabian) - no VOIP on that model though :)

I need a desk phone though.

Cisco IP Phones...7940 series are great

Do they plug straight in to a router, or do I need a seperate platform to manage it? Is there software that I can get and will install for the Exchange integration or will it do it directly from the phone.


P.S. I've had a look around and I'm not sure.

It's a two-man band at the moment, but I want something scalable and professional :) Thanks for all your help, I'll get Cisco to do the rest
