Ip phones are readily available new and second hand eBay being a good source of cheap units ,look at the list of supported phones on the Hamshack hotline site before buying as this makes provisioning of service much more straightforward.

Expect to pay between £25 and £40 for a full featured unit the example in the picture above is the Cisco SPA 525G ,make sure any secondhand unit is unlocked from its previous provider ,these feature phones have things like apps for weather and local news reports etc. As well as the useful conference facility and ability to call astrix services like Allstar !
