Removing 'switchport' from an interface configuration.

I am speaking here of Cisco switches.

Consider this:

interface GigabitEthernet10/25
 switchport
end

I know that the this will cause the port to be in the default vlan1.

But what if on the interface the "no switchport" is issued.  I can see that the interface falls out of vlan1, but what becomes of it?

"no switchport" allows the interface to be configured as a routed interface.

if you want this to be a vlan interface but not in vlan 1, leave the 'switchport' and add 'switchport access vlan X'.

What happens after you issue the "no switchport" is that you have to configure the interface with an IP address for example.
interface GigabitEthernet10/25
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
