    Is there a way to add additional numbers (besides just 911) that can be dialed from the emergency dialer that comes up when you hit the "Emergency Call" button on the lock screen?

    AS far as I know you can not do this by default setting or an app. However , I would think it is possible if you ROOT your phone and follow some steps. I don't have much experience in rooting etc so hopefully someone more knowledgeable can guide you :)

    My phone is rooted.

    I suppose I could use ADB to hunt around and try to find what controls the numbers that can be dialed from the Emergency Dial Pad.

    Since I use the "Contact Owner" app to put my name, address, and home phone number on my lock screen, it would be nice to allow whoever finds my phone to use it to call me.
