Personal communicator covers the license for the PC based tool that manages the telephone system.  The ShoreTel Professional license adds a couple of things, including Softphone IM/Presence and video.  One part of the Mobility features set (an app for the smartphones) is a totally separate license.

Ah, we have 10x mobility too.
We need to allow softphones. Presume we need seperate license again for this even though we have personal licences (cant see anything to do with softphone on the xls)?

You will need professional for softphone.  Regular mobility (office anywhere) is included in all but not the mobile app for smartphones.

Ok, we have 37x personal licences but when the softphone option ticked in director it says we need to buy more softphone licences.  Currently have 1x softphone license.

So your saying personal licences should give us ability to use softphone or not?

No - personal licenses do not give you softphone.  You must purchased professional to get softphone.  Then it will update the number of softphone licenses you can assign.
