Thanks for bringing this up. No, litephone doesn't handle this correctly.

I'm thinking that a good way to compare phone numbers (for example the
sender of a message and a phone book entry) is to check whether one number
is a suffix of the other number. Are there any (non-obscure) cases where
this would give false positives?
