Choosing a SIP phone (for Mac CTI)

As the developer of Phone Amego, I've had the opportunity to use several SIP phones in order to support them in Phone Amego. Ironically, many advanced phones are not very good at CTI, so I'd like to describe some of my own experience here. For casual home use, a VoIP telephone adaptor and cordless phone may be all that's needed. For professional or office use, SIP phones offer better sound and advanced features to make handling calls easier and more efficient.

The Yealink SIP-T22P is my personal favorite for value and ease of use. It's easy to configure with every provider I've tried, and has a nice feel and UI.

If your provider is setup to provision only certain phones, that would be a reason to consider something else.
