Out-of-pocket is a pimp term. If the ho (whore) is out of pocket that means she is out of line. It could be talking back, not making enough dough (money), scheming behind her pimp's back, or any other non-compliant things. This term can be used for other out of line people that may or may not be worthy enough to be called a ho.
"This out-of-pocket bitch came up short so I had to put a foot up her ho ass."

Out of Pocket is a colloquialism used in the Southern Region of the United States. It is favored by grandparents and great-grandparents. It means to be unreachable in a communication sense. Very common in the days before cell phones.

A term that should never be used. It is used 99% of the time by D.C. Bureaucrats. Not just any bureaucrat, but sycophant whore climbers. Mostly used by no talent grade 14's in Headquarters with polished shoes who are clamoring to move up.
D.C. Bureaucrat- "Hey Steve, I'm going to be out of pocket for the next 20 minutes."

Non Climbing Bureaucrat- "Great, enjoy your dump, remember to wipe yourself."
