I just have a simple question. According to my understaing when setting the Cisco IP phone and the PC, the recommended way of doing is Switch > Cisco IP PHONE > From ip phone to PC. But I have came across one setup, in that Switch > PC and Pc to Ip Phone. I understand that voice and data have different VLAN. If both the ways are same then why first method is preferred. Is something wrong in the second method.

Second question does all the cisco phones has switch ports?
