i'm fairly sure it's not so. i've just tested by editing the contact. the
incoming call when the contact was listed as +441223... showed as coming
from a 'phone number, but when i edited the contact entry to 01223..., the
call showed as coming from my home 'phone.
i'm not sure when the call log does the lookup - at time of call, or time
of later examination of log - so i'm not sure that's a useful test. i
think my questions stand: does anyone else see this?
