Man, that's a question that's really worth asking - and I do keep
asking it whenever I see the periodic  "paging $provider" emails.

INOC-DBA, the Cisco NSP list.. and there's always ARIN / RIPE whois
contacts, that do have a phone number available .. and quite
frequently that is the only way to contact a provider if they're
unreachable from your corner of the  internet thanks to a backhoe
incident, fat fingered firewall ACL or whatever.

Maybe a nanog FAQ entry on "how to hunt for provider contact information"?
