RE: Contact Picture URL?
As far as I know the phones cannot do that (but I am by no means an expert).

I have only found two ways to assign pictures to contacts for the T-46 at least:

First, as detailed here using the Tar within a Tar file:
<contact display_name="Test Office" office_number="221" mobile_number="" other_number="" line="-1" ring="Auto" group_id_name="Office" default_photo="Config:221.jpg" />

Otherwise I have found you can call a picture that is built into the phone by doing:
<contact display_name="Test Office 2" office_number="222" mobile_number="" other_number="" line="-1" ring="Auto" group_id_name="Office" default_photo="/phone/resource/sysdata/contact-image/icon_friend_b.png" />

The phones are not exactly speedy when it comes to provisioning and loading files, I'm not sure that you would want them to download all those pictures individually even if you could. And if you already have all the pictures on your TFTP server its just one line of scripting to get that second tar file built, you can even use Cron to build it on a regular basic and set the phones to update nightly if the pictures change often.
