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,

2. Using newer wallpaer them on older Android version

Does anybody have experience or advice on this scenario -

Say I want to use one of the wallpaper themes from 2.0 (api level 5)
like -


And I also want to support 1.6 (api level 4) devices

My questions about that scenario are -

(1) what happens if I use a 2.0 theme on a device with a 1.6 version
device?  Is the theme ignored?

(2) Can I check the api version and use a transparent background on
the post-1.6 devices (so the wallpaper is the background) and a non-
transparent background on the 1.6 devices (where the wallpaper will
not show through)? What is a good technique?
