2 step authentication SMS backup

I love two step auth, but recently I had to reset my phone, resulting in the lost of the application settings.
When you are asked for the code, you have only the option to disable it via SMS, and then configuring it again.
Would be nicer to just have the option to receive a login code via SMS and then set-up again the application, like Google is doing right now.
