Liberia Telecom's geographic numbers are treated as national numbers with leading digit '2'. Therefore, no area code would be prepended to these subscriber numbers.
Also see Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications announcements (via ITU), particularly 11 October 2004 announcement for new Comium range.
Announcements from Cellcom indicated their service was commissioned on 15 October 2004 and successfully launched on 16 November 2004.
Cellcom arranged with Israel carrier Barak to handle calls with points outside Liberia.

A Libtelco announcement (13 May 2003, via ITU) specified that LoneStar GSM numbers in +231 64xxxxx and +231 65xxxxx ranges were in service, although the announcement was not clear when those ranges were activated. This might have been announced due to reported problems in reaching LoneStar number ranges.
Lonestar arranged with Monaco carrier MedNet to handle calls with points outside Liberia.

Also some reference to use of +377 for Liberia access on kropla.com page.
United Nations Joint Logistics Centre (UNJLC) operations in Liberia used telephone numbers from Monaco of form +377 47 5xxxxx, apparently using the LoneStar access.
This was listed in in a January 2004 UNJLC bulletin. It is unclear if UN facilities remain in place, and whether they have migrated to the +231 6 xxxxxx LoneStar number ranges.
Number ranges assigned to LoneStar were: +231 64xxxxx and +231 65xxxxx.
Comium is a wireless carrier.
