I would prefer if we, the operators act as the "password recovery tool". I think the ultimate solution to this is to allow account creation from CSip. The password isn't a very active one, and really acts as a shared secret rather than a typical "PIN" style password.

What would be ultimately sick, is a function on the client called "register handset" that generates a string in the form username:domain:password and builds an md5 sum of that. This string is sent securely to the server and a new user is provisioned. The "password" substring is then saved in the CSip database and the user never worries about it again. I borrowed this process from a little reverse engineering I did on the MagicJack.
