Anyone have any favorites for corded single or double line non-PBX business telephones? I have an old Northern Telecom 616 PBX at my other residence and love those phones. Also liked the AT&T/Lucent/Avaya phones on their larger systems. I'd like something that has a good (heavy-ish) euro-style receiver rather than the American K/G style receivers. Headset support would be nice.

I'm looking for the same thing, and while I haven't found anything yet, the office supply places like Staples and Office Depot seem to be the best bet.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've not been impressed with what I've seen in Staples. It all looked like the traditional consumer junk, nothing even close to the feel of a good PBX phone.

Actually, you're right. After I read your post, I did some research.

Here is the phone you want, and the phone I will be buying. The Nortel 9417. Very solid look and feel.

Now THAT looks more like what I'm looking for. Actually, that phone looks VERY similar to what I have on my desk at the other place:
,
'though these appear not to need the PBX, which is nice for my other place which lacks a PBX. Flipping through the manual makes it even more interesting -- supports paging between other phones & external PA systems. It's a lot less than what I was planning on spending too! Cool! I think I might be picking up a few myself. If it is anything close to what my Nortern Telecom phones are, I think you'll be quite happy with it.

Northern Telecom == Nortel?

I'm not sure, but it looks like those 2 phones are made by the same company.

Yeah....Northern Telecom/Nortel/Meridian/Aastra...same thing.

It's sort of like AT&T/Lucent/Avaya....these companies can't stop renaming themselves. It's an addiction for which there is no known rehab.

well, found a Nortel M8417...and got it cheap (free)...but disappointed with it! As a phone it's great...but Nortel/Aastra royally screwed up with this one -- no caller ID! The display's there, but the phone just isn't capable of it. Seems like this phone's meant more for PBX usage than POTS duty. That said, THIS is the type of phone I've been looking for. The little Panasonic KX-TSC11 I've been using hasn't been bad, but this definitely is what I was looking for.

Has anyone used any of the newer M9000 series Aastra phones? They call them their "value" series, which makes me think they've deleted features & cheapened them, but no one locally seems to carry them, so I've not been able to pick one up & see if they have the same heavy feel as the "Classic/Legacy" series does.
