Yealink offers some very cost effective IP Phones. The entry level phones are some of the cheapest available on the market while still offering a full business-grade feature set. Although not as well known as some other vendors such as Cisco or Polycom, Yealink products offer a great value proposition and should be evaluated as part of your phone selection process.
Instead of drowning you in the details of every single feature of these phones, we have looked at what the key unique features of each model are and how they are different. It is not immediately obvious what the differences are between models when you visit the Yealink site, so the following tables will give you a really good idea of which model you should select.
For clarification, the number of SIP accounts that a phone can support refers to the total number of separate phone lines that can be used on the device.

There is actually only one model available in this series, the SIP-T18P. It is a fairly basic one line phone that has interoperability with leading IP-PBX and soft switch developments and includes PoE and auto provisioning. This model is no longer available or supported by Yealink and is fully EOL (End Of Life). As a result the T1 series no longer exists.
These are popular models that are used with hosted VoIP solutions. The series consists of seven different models, all with similar features except for the number of lines available and the display type. The model numbers are SIP-T19P (IP and E2 versions), SIP-T20P (EOL), SIP-21P (E2), SIP-T22P, SIP-23G, SIP-23P, SIP-T26P, SIP-T27P, SIP-T28P and SIP-T29G. The available lines range from 2 to 6 depending on the model while the screen resolution ranges from a smaller 2.7" low resolution screen on the T20P to a high resolution, 4.3" inch display on the T29G. Expansion modules (EXP20 and EXP38) are only supported on the T26P, T27P, T28P and T29G.

This series currently consists of five different phone models that are referred to as being Ultra-elegant. Upon closer inspection it is easy to see why as each of the models is highly customizable with an executive look and feel. Model numbers are SIP-T40P, SIP-T41P, SIP-T42G, SIP-T46G and SIP-T48G with the later two models both having large color displays and have expansion module support.

The best part of this phone is the screen. I don't use the video at all but the huge touch screen is awesome. Looks great on my desk too!
#2 : APR 4th, 2013 : Kevin
We've purchased a whole office of yealink phones and a Yeastar MyPBX phone system. I did a lot of research. The phones are easy to configure and connect to the system. They work very well. Lots of featurs, great operability. Very reliable. I highly recommend Yealink and Yeastar products.

I am happy with the performance of my Yealink T-22. For me, a relatively active phone user (inbound sales), I found the characters and placement of the information on the LCD screen to be well placed and easy to read. It is easy for me to handle multiple calls, put one on hold, pick up another and transfer...etc. I also like the ability to easily toggle through missed calls. Buttons have good feel and handset has a good weight in my hand.
