Google now let you recover your lost Gmail passwords via text message. To turn this on for your account, just sign in, select 'Change Password Recovery Options,' enter your cell phone number and click 'Save.' Next time you forget your password, enter your username on the password-assistance page, and Google will text you a recovery code. No need to check another email account or even leave the page. In general, it's a good idea to add as many password recovery options to your Google Account as possible, like a secondary email address and security question. And don't forget to keep them up-to-date.
