I could be wrong, but it seems that if you have 2-step verification enabled, you can't actually setup a fresh install on your verification phone. I can't receive calls or texts with the verification code until I've logged in with my Google account, but I can't login to my Google account without the code. Am I missing something?
, what do you mean by "doesn't improve security"? you mean that it doesn't help to disable your device in case a thief steals it? if so, then your'e right. but that's not the purpose of 2-factor.
