I have been tasked with setting up 2 seperate extensions in our business to house 2 seperate portable phones.  My main question is, do I need to get two seperate types of phones?  Or, if I get two of the same phone, will they not interfere with each other?

What will I need to look at when getting two portable phones for a large warehouse area so they do not interefere with one another?

I recommend the Polycom Spectralink 80XX series.  They work on existing 802.11b/g radios and are bulletproof:

I can assist with setup and operation as well, if needed.

Yes, they are SIP.  What PBX vendor are you using?  Would a standard analog wireless set work?  I would consider these, they are very good:

I am not certain on the phone system, I just know it is pretty old, maybe 15-20 years old.  I am confident that any wireless phone will work with our system, I just want to make sure that if I buy two of them for two seperate extensions, that they will not interfere with each other.

The Engenius models will not interfere with each other, and will be able to be used as 2 way radios between units.  Make sure you are purchasing the 1X models, as well as a 1X base station.  You will be able to expand the base station up to 9 handsets, with no interference.

The phone uses a standard analog jack, so you should be able to interface it with just about anything.

We are looking for cheap phones, like 50 bucks each.  I just need to know if I get two of the same phone if they will interefere with each other or not, or what I need to look for to get two cheap phones for two seperate lines.

You should not have an issue with modern phones.  Many will even come bundled with multiple handsets.  Look for something in the 900MHz or 5.8GHz range.  Stay away from 2.4GHz.
