Intro

Grandstream have been around for a long time. They are budget phones. If you are looking to get started with throw away phones, then this is the place to start. The good news is even the low end phones in their range support HD CODECS, so even though the voice quality is not quite as good as more expensive phones the voice quality is not too bad.

GXP1105/1100

The GXP1100 and GXP1105 are essentially the same phone, the only difference is the GXP1100 comes with a power supply and the GXP1105 requires PoE, which makes the desk just that little bit tidier. This is one of the cheapest phones around. You don’t get a screen or anything fancy, but you can make and receive calls, place calls on hold and transfer them.
