For truly basic testing throughput and testing, you could use something like  Ixia QCheck.  Run a test with the phone then bypassing the phone.    

Start basic and work your way up.  Start with removing the phone.  Then move on to the cables. and so on.  

What make/model/firmware do you have on your switch?  it is a managed switch?
