Is quitting your job over the phone good or bad?

It is considered good practice to give a written two-week notice or letter of resignation in person. In many cases, failing to do so will put you on a do not hire list and you will not be eligible for re-hire. This may also mean that you would not get a good reference from the company.

It is always best not to burn bridges, so to speak. You may think that you wouldn't want to return to your job but may later realize that you need to do so. To be put on a do not hire list is not good for your career.

If you must quit over the phone due to circumstances, I would suggest stating that the circumstances are the reason why and that you will follow up with a letter of resignation in person, if possible.
