Hi,

if you can, try to avoid the Cisco 79xx series. The other two are fine.

You can find the list of phones supported by auto-provisioning at http://www.kerio.com/operator/technical-specifications

If you are looking for a good price, check the Well/Yealink phones as well.

I can't really speak for the other brands on your list, but if you're comparing Snom phones, give the 821 model a look. We went with those over the 3xx series as they offer better features for not a whole lot more money. Another feature to pay attention to is the built-in switch on the phones. Some older model phones (such as the Snom 320/370) only include a 10/100 switch. Snom 8xx series phones have gigabit switches, and both 3xx and 8xx models include basic packet queueing for QoS purposes.

The only complaints we have with the Snom phones have to do with some of the particulars in the way they implemented their UI. They are not the most user friendly phones to set up, but once you have them figured out and provisioned the way you want, they are pretty darn solid. (Avoid the "Vision" expansion modules though.)

Another vote for Yeahlink phones, we use them exclusively and price for features is hard to beat!

Well, I should have seen this coming Smile

Although I admit that they look pretty nice on the desk, I had some hard times with them. They can't be re-synced (notified to reload a new configuration). It is not possible to configure them manually, one always has to use the provisioning. Firmware upgrades are not available to the public.
