Hi there, I'm looking at Cisco VoIP phones, and was wondering which model would be the lowest price with a color display? My initial research tells me the 7945, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You are most welcome :) Yes, these models carry on the same type of relationship as the 7940/7960 and 7941/7961 did with the two vs six Line Key buttons.
Here are the Data Sheets for both;
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7945G
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7965G
Hope this helps!
Thanks again Rob, I read both data sheets. They mention that the key buttons can be used for "telephone lines (or combination of lines, speed dials, and direct access to telephony features)"
We will only have 2 lines, so I'm curious about what some other uses might be of the keys. Aside from speed dials, what are some typical uses of the "direct access to telephony features"?
Would the "four interactive soft keys" provide the same capabilities?
I've used the Programable Line Keys for Speed Dials, Busy Lamp Fields, Service URLs, Intercom Keys, MeetingPlace Express, Some of the Soft Keys like Transfer and Conference. And that was a quick list.
Most of those you can not program on soft keys as they require Programable Line Keys.
Most of our users have 7941s as they only have one extension and I can add whatever PLK they need.
Your decision is totally based on what your users need. I like the extra keys, but I'm a phone geek. :-)
