Use the 5 GHz phones if you're using 2.4 for ham work, by all means. 
However, I've had no trouble with my microwave oven or phones when I
set up my WiFi on channel 11. (If I hold my phone handset right next
to the over (when on), I do hear a little interference, but not very
bad.) Your mileage may vary.  Maybe it would be easier to choose 5 GHz
phones in the first place now, but I got a good deal on older 2.4 GHz
models a year or two ago.

I have a hard time raising anyone on 2 mtrs here in So Central CT. 
Who do you talk to on 2.4 GHz? :-)
