PSK is to be avoided if possible.
While WPA2 is nice, WPA is sufficient.
So I'd say WPA Enterprise.
As for web-based authentication, I don't think it's really appropriate
for handsets -- what's needed is more support for WISPr
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WISPr> (included in the Netgear SPH200W).
In the meantime, consider:
* Devicescape <http://www.devicescape.com/>, which supports the Linksys
Linux-based WIP300 VoIP phone and more (including iPhone)
* Cloning the handset MAC address and authenticating with a portable
* Just using a headset attached to a portable computer
