My host provides SSH, but recently changed to "jailed SSH". That didn't cause any problems for me, but some people did have issues with it based on what they were doing. I haven't noticed a difference in terms of what I can do ... log in, change permissions, use wget or ftp from the command line to back things up to another server, etc.

There are really too many to name, Nadder. Most reseller companies will be happy to work out a solution for you if you ask. But some may require the reseller's clients to fax in their information before authorising it.
Look around your preferred reseller companies, and ask them. As I said, most will be interested in working with you for this.
Jailed is restricting the SSH user to their directory path so they don't go poking around the rest of the server where they don't need to be. And theres more to proof of id than just a credit card like a picture id would be better proof of id. A host who offers unjail SSH must trust their customers and should be monitering their servers more closely than someone who doesn't allow SSH or at least jails them because there is more potential of abuse for non-jailed SSH.
This is one of those things I personally didn't really want to give any customers access to, but as a programmer and developer, I can see the need for some people if they can provide that justification and proof of who they are.
