How to get dialup password

Hey, a friend of mine forgot her dialup networking password. Is there a way to get it? Is it saved somewhere?

that's the most retarded service that i've heard of. basically if you forget your password, you're screwed???

another solution: see if they can e-mail it to her alternate e-mail account (most IPS's do this). if not, cancel that account, then start another one.

Nope, any half decent isp will have secondary form of identifying yourself like credit card # or other secret word...call them, they'll give it
