"311" only works from 202 area code (update 3:00 pm)

This has been updated from the original post thanks to the diligence and quick actions of some DC government staff
If you've ever tried calling 311 from your cell phone with a 240, 301 or other area code when you are outside the city, you know it doesn't work!   The solution is dialing (202) 737-4404.   This gets you to the Mayor's Citywide Call Center.

As pointed out by DC gov staff, you can call 311 from inside the District from non-202 area codes (though that still doesn't work for me - but then, I am special). and get right through to the call center.
