Although this is not the mainaspect to distinguish a trustworthy shared hosting provider from a bad one and a reseller from an actual provider, being able to call and consult with a live person is a sign that you aren't using the services of a one-person company and that you will be able to reach someone whenever you need support. The telephone support for hosting services may range from basic to expert, so the problems that can be resolved through a phone call vary depending on the specific supplier. In the general case, these matters are simpler and include billing or 1st level tech issues because more difficult matters usually need a support ticket where both you and the sysadmins can follow the proceedings with a given issue. Nevertheless, having the option to call your service provider will save you a lot of time and efforts for the numerous tiny problems which will eventually appear at the time you manage your hosting account.
