I have a question.  I have set up Google Authenticator for my Mt. Gox account on my Droid.  What happens if I lose my phone?  Am I locked out of my account?  If I set G.A. for withdrawls and Security Center only and then lose my phone, how can I make withdrawls?

I think you will need to provide with some information about your account IE: username, withdraw option, latest deposit..
But I would try not to loose it lol

One option (works for any google auth site) is to print out the QR code before enrolling your phone.  If you lose your phone and have the paper QR code backup you can just enroll another phone.  Make sure to keep the paper safe it essentially IS the 2nd factor.  Anyone with that QR code can generate the correct authentication number.

Love my Yubikey

Thanks MtGox

I never thought my life could be. Anything but catastrophe. But suddenly I begin to see. A "BIT" of good luck for me. Cause I've got a golden ticket!
