Pros: These have no screen which is exactly what I wanted. Most of the calling functions for our service happen directly on the screen. We do not want our operators confused by conflicting information and options on the phone. In our case, simple is better.
Cons: You need a degree in rocket science to do anything with Cisco products and this is no exception. I have been in IT for over 20 years.

Pros: bought these and didnt even realize that they didnt have a screen. all they are is little paper strips that you write the number on.

Summary: Very hard to get answers on getting it configured. Not as easy as the more expensive models. Can't just plug and play as advertised. Good voice quality. Rugged, knocked it off the desk 20 times trying to get it configured and still works well. Only bought it to use in testing a new phone system. Would hate to have to use it on a daily basis as it has no display.
