For both of these cases you'll want to query the addressbook. It is
stored in EDS and we have a QtOrganizer plugin to access it, you can use
either API. From there I'd recommend using a URL and dispatching it via
URL DIspatcher, there is a liburl-dispatcher or you can use the Qt URL
API. So basically send:


Which will open up the dialer and populate it with that number.

I'm not sure that there is a similar interface for messaging. But if you
talk to the messaging app developers I don't think it would be super
difficult to build one.

Generally speaking, questions about the services that are phone specific
are probably best on the ubuntu-phone mailing list. I've CC'd it.
