    You could offer a phone based service like Twillio, or if your users have Facebook account you could use them to authenticate your users instead.

    Out of curiosity what's your target market who has internet access but not email?

    You need email for Facebook. How about a secret question thing instead? Allow an option for password recovery to email as well.

    Sounds funny yet interesting.. I thing you just need a security question or like the one used in some sites where they'll enter their mobile number, send them a validation code to confirm that they own that number and account and that's it.
