No, I don't think so Steven... is there a reason why you need this blocked?

Relative using the WHP used to have this as a free service with Bell, and forgets that it's $2.50 /call with Koodo. Any suggestions appreciated!

You'll just have to tell your relative to not call 411 then I guess. As far as I know 411 especially cannot be blocked.

Perhaps a note by the phone "411 costs 2.50 ask x to search for something you" or something like that?

Tried that with no success. Any idea if this device might work in Canada & with the WHP device? https://www.hqtelecom.com/outgoingcal...

The only thing you can really block is calling internationally by not adding the pay-per-use international long distance feature. That's just phones: whatever you dial in, it will try to connect.
