The short answer is: most SIP phones work with 3CX but there are some limitations.  For example, the Cisco 7940G, 7960G, 7941G, and 7961G are all supported but no longer recommended.  In other words, it may take a little work to get them to work with your 3CX environment.  What was and is still no 3CX support for the more modern Cisco phones like the 7942G/7962G with enhanced two-tone display, the 7945G/7965G models with full color display, or any of the other more modern Cisco IP phones with built-in videoconferencing.  My guess the cost of Cisco phones is too high for 3CX’s typical SMB clients but I can’t say for sure.  3CX remains focused on compatibility with Yealink, snom, and other more open phone OEMs instead.  If you’re still curious why companies are deploying 3CX you might be interested in the top five reasons we think people are deploying it.
