We have a general rule for swapping shifts at my work. Once it's in the system/a manager is notified of the shift change, the shift is the new worker's responsibility & if they don't make or get coverage, it it's the new worker's fault. I haven't had many jobs but this seems pretty standard.

My phone would definitely be "out of service" that day. Once a switch is made, it should under no circumstances be the responsibility of the original scheduled person to work the shift. At every place I've ever worked at, that's how it was - once that change to the schedule is made, it's your baby. It's literally not my problem that they or their kid got sick or they had a flat tire or whatever. You picked up the day, you committed to it, it's your problem.
