Basically, the phones come with the provisioning URL set at the factory
to a Polycom server, and you (as the reseller or customer) can use that
to redirect them to your own server.  This is useful in cases where you
do not control DHCP at the customer site.

Some Polycom distributors also offer a pre-configuration service where
they put your provisioning server's URL directly into the phone before

Config file polling, either periodic or scheduled, has been available
since version 1.0.

As of version 4.0, yes, for most settings.  A few still require a
reboot, but that's much faster as well.
