Trying to determine whether I shoudl use Call Manager or the Call gateway integrated into the Cisco 2821.  My client is using a simple T1 and I will be intalling a 2821, POE switches and a WLC for future wireless APs as well as Cisco 7920 wireless phones.  

Just a basic idea is all I need.  I am really confused about the 2821 vs. Call Manager.  I have used both....

How many total phones? Call manager Express runs on the 2800ISR router and would probably be a good solution. Include the Unity Express AIM or NM to provide Voice mail..
There are some 2800 series voice/CME/CUE bundle deals that work out pretty well and support most of the Cisco IP phones.
2821 can only support up to 35-50 phones max..

Great. What I wanted to hear.  So the 2800ISR can do my date routing (terminate my T1), and run call manager to do my voice routing?  Question.  Who would provide my telephone numbers.. i would have to get with the provider for that?  Would I have to worry about licensing?  How does that compare in your mind to the Cisco Unified Communications Series 500?

Easy questions first
UC500 is really Call Manager Express under the hood, with limitations.
Telephone numbers come from your T1/PRI/SIP telco provider
Yes, the 2800ISR can do it all!

That's great.   I will either go with the 2801 or 2811.  This can be closed.  I may open more as I go along....  Thank you!!
