When phone service continues normally, but SIM is physically out of the phone, what do callers hear when they call the phone's number?

Asked by marmoset (1258points) February 5th, 2015

I have a U.S. Verizon phone with a normal postpaid account that I know is unlocked. I’ll be traveling abroad for a week and the phone will have a local SIM in it (I’ll just keep my Verizon account going normally during my travel). During that time, what will happen when someone else places a call to my U.S. number? Will it go immediately to voicemail, or will they get some recording like “this number is not in service”? If the latter, what should I do to fix that?

It should go to voice mail immediately. The “not in service” would apply if you cancelled you account.

(I also confirmed just now, by popping out my sim and having my friend call me)
