Yealink IP Phones Comparison and Reviews

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.

SIP-T1 Series

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.

We have had Spectrum and AT&T try to set up our phone with no luck and no way to contact Yealink after we spent over $7,000. Never again, we want our money back.


The big screen is awesome

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!


Very Pleased!

#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.


Yealink T-22

Overall rating (5)

#1 : DEC 12th, 2012 : Penn


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.
