I've been working with Mitel and Cisco SIP phones where it requires the user to dial the number then hit a softkey, whatever way, handset, headset or speaker. To me it's a PITA and if the network goes down on the backend, the set can still generate a "dial tone" in the virtual sense. Is this something with the protocol, or is dependent on the phone maker? Are there SIP phones that can work more like a typical office phone, and if so which ones should I look at?
