    Another vote for the iPhone - and a generic Windows Mobile client would be nice too...

        I have heard that they are working on MCM for the Storm. However, there isn't an ETA.

          Hurray!

          Well since MCM wont work, you can register your Iphone on a ShoreTel system as a SIP device. I tested and tried it out, if anyone wants help let me know. I basically have an inter-office cordless phone now. When I enter the SIP app on the Iphone, my desktop goes to anon. The second I close the SIP app my desk phone re registers with my extension - neat-o!

            I am trying to convince my executive team to go with the Shoretel when we replace our outdated PBX in a few months, but the lack of iPhone support for MCM is a tough selling point. They currently can manage their voicemails with our Cisco Unity system on their iPhone, without having to deal with multiple copies of each mesage. Shoretel needs to realize that iPhones in the enterprise are here to stay and develop a MCM app for them soon.

              I don't deny that ShoreTel needs to expand MCM to other phones including the iPhone, Storm, etc. However, I personally think that not getting the ShoreTel phone system because of the lack of MCM for the iPhone is a little shortsighted. Also, I'm fairly certain that they are working on both, and currently beta testing them.

              There are other alternatives to managing voicemails w/o using MCM, like YouMail and Google Talk. I understand that any company wants to control their own VM, but YouMail does offer an attractive product allowing you to have a single VM location for your Home, Business and Mobile phones. Google talk also offers something similar.

                We sync our exchange server with our iPhones, and have voicemails delivered as wave files.
