SMS and emergency call permissions using an ap

I'm doing my Master project around an API that sends health monitoring
data to a local emergency
line using SMS and contacts those emergency services by call if the
user of the device has fallen and needs
medical help (using accelerometer data and audio monitoring, it is
targetted mainly at the elder users).

My question is if it's possible, with user permission, to let the API
automaticly use those messaging/calling services with google android.
If so, would i need a developer device to activate the permissions on
that level, or would a consumer device be enough?

Thank you in advance,

1. ContactsContract and target version

I'm creating an app that needs to create a contact. My 1st attempt

ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(Contacts.People.NAME, "Name");
values.put(People.Phones.TYPE, People.Phones.TYPE_MOBILE);
values.put(People.Phones.NUMBER, "+11111");
Uri myUri = getContentResolver().insert(People.CONTENT_URI,values);

This creates an exception: "column "NUMBER" is invalid" (huh?)

It seems People.Phones.NUMBER is deprecated so I tried to use
ContactsContract. Unfornately ContactsContract and RawContacts are not
resolved (using Eclipse) unless... I change the project target to 7.
Since I need the app to run on target 3 (1.5), could please someone
tell me how to add a contact - that works on always versions?

Thanks in advance!
