1.	Maybe they do.


2.	People tend to be much more careful about punching numbers into a  
telephone than typing words on a keyboard, I think.  There's also not  
a conceptual conflation of common typo mistakes with common telephone  
number transpositions, I don't think (i.e., I'm unsure there's any  
such thing as a common number transposition, while there certainly is  
with linguistic constructs such as letters).
