Password recovery through mobile?

Give me your opinions below! Cool
It wouldn't work just like passwords. Passwords are one-way hashed and compared upon login. Phone numbers would need to be encrypted with something like key authentication, which as Arbaz said, would require a significant amount of code to implement.
