Bank of America to introduce m-banking

Brian White

Are you one of those early adopters (of course you are, 'cause we are too) that wants to take care of your banking over your beloved cellphone? Well, the largest bank in the good ol' USA -- Bank of America -- is about to roll out a mobile banking service to all of its 21 million online banking customers pretty soon according to reports. From the wires, "Subscribers to the free service will be able to use their cell phones and smartphones when they're on-the-go to check account balances, pay bills and transfer money." Sweet -- so whip out that WM5 (or WM6) phone or standard wireless handset and get those bills paid -- although the PR mentions just four carriers -- Verizon Wireless, Sprint-Nextel, Cingular AT&T and T-Mobile. We knew it would be hard to let the Cingular brand go, and Bank of America is with us. Will this service compete with Cingular / Citi's offering, though? Of course.
