Root [MetroPCS/CDMA] Unable to call any toll-free, *611, etc.

With my MetroPCS SG3 -- Whenever I dial 800, 888, or even My Metro's *611 (all of which are Call Forward #'s), I get a recording: "The number or code you have dialed is incorrect...".
With my MetroPCS ZTE Avid -- no problem, all connect.

I've booted, removed battery, and performed TWRP recovery back to 04-2013 (when I was still in Tampa area). Metro PCS support informs unable to troubleshoot further, as I am presently in Indiana -- Extended Home Area.

SG3 running JB 4.1.2 Metropolis ROM, rooted.
ZTE Avid = ICS stock, rooted.

Have had problem for over a month now (although, I'm not positively sure I've ever called any toll-free since departing Tampa - late April)
