    Verizon only has a roaming agreement with certain other providers.
    If there is no roaming agreement in place, it's up to the carrier you are
    connected to how the call will be handled. Sometimes you will be routed to a
    credit card system (typically $2 + $1/minute) and sometimes you will get an
    error and will not be able to use the system.

    There is no standard unfortunately. Sometimes you can dial 611 and will be able
    to get an operator who will let you place a call. Sometimes you can't.

    Regardless, if there is no roaming agreement in place, you will not be able to
    receive incoming calls.
