    Good day. I have a few questions about contacts managements.

    How to:
    1)Import and export contacts from/to SIM and SD card? How can I access SIM card directory or something like that?
    2)Send contact by SMS?
    3)Open activity for SMS typing and set some contacts as targets?
    4)List accounts when I create new group or contact? Do "features" of account authenticator include "creating android contact with this account type"?

    Comments for everything: I know, I should explore some Google apps (and I even downloaded their sources), but my customer wants this functions just now, so I almost have no time.

    Comment for 2 and 3: it would be enough to list all available extras for sms intent.

    Comment for 4: the main question is, how to include phone account. As I understood, for every company it's unique: one for HTC, one for Samsung and so on. How can I find suitable account type and name for any phone?
