You might want to have a look at the other phones as well... ;-)
Go with the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985G NTSC. The 9971 is a nice phone but the 7985G is 4 times the price, looks really impressive and has been described as "having every feature known to man".  

Keep in mind that most VIP's won't have a clue how to use all of the features of these phones so find one that fits needs, abilities and your support schedule. Otherwise the most impressive phone will only point out what a pain the butt technology can be.


jfaubiontx / ubat - Guys, thankyou both - I love it & so will the VIP's.

Obviously we all know they will never, ever use the things to actually contact anyone but well I guess thats not the point ;)

Thank you both again, just the answer I was looking for.

Shall be ordering both handsets.
