Your call may be blocked?

Some phone systems have Restriction Blocks placed on their phone service. If there is a restriction to block 900-976 4-1-1 numbers, this will also block access to 3-1-1. If you can dial 4-1-1, you should be able to dial 3-1-1. There are charges for placing a call to 4-1-1, however, there is no charge for calls to 3-1-1.

Dialing 3-1-1 from your computer?

Some people and businesses are using Internet technology to place their phone calls. The Internet Protocol allows voice to be carried over network connections, and this type of connection is referred to as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Systems using VoIP do not allow dialing directly to 3-1-1.
