Bank With Bank Of America? Then Check Out Their Mobile Site

BofamobigenericI must be a moron since I have never heard of Bank of America’s mobile site until now even though it has been around since last year. Well I decided to rectify my mistake by mentioning it to all of you who may happen to be Bank of America customers.

The website is really cool and even has a BlackBerry shortcut application that you can install on your homescreen. Why did nobody tell me about this!

If you head over to www.BofA.mobi from your BlackBerry browser you will be taken to a page that says:

Please download the ‘Mobile Banking Shortcut for BlackBerry’ by visiting http://mobilebanking.bankofamerica.com/bb. This shortcut will access the correct browser and allow you to securely access mobile banking.

I also found out that if you don’t want to download the shortcut you can just access the website by going to: https://www.bankofamerica.com/mobile/ Please do me a favor and make sure the HTTPS is in the beginning of the URL before you type in your password.

Sadly none of my other banks offer such a service (at least that I know of). Please correct me if I am wrong. Chase allows you to text message them to get your account info but that is a bore. I know Wachovia has some sort of mobile banking option but I don’t use them.

  1. I have been using their mobi site for several months now. Find it very useful and helpful to pay bills on the go. One day my bookmark stopped working. I thought the site was taken down. Turns out they changed the URL and for ease I just installed their shortcut and all works great now. I have personally always been impressed with how much BoA offers in terms of online services, and their mobi site is just in line with all that.

  2. Thanks for this. I just tried it on my new Sprint Mogul and it works great!

  3. Suntrust & Wachovia are a couple that also offer moble banking. As well as the shortcut on your BB homescreen.

  4. I tried using their mobi site a while ago and it used to say you cannot logon using a blackberry device….guess they fixed it.

  5. Wells Fargo has a mobile site and also allows you text for you r account balances and activity.

  6. Grid,
    What is the link to the wells fargo mobile site? What features does it give you?

  7. USAA has https://mobile.usaa.com

    Gets you access to current balances and recent transactions, which are good things to have from the road. Looks like they just added bill paying and online trade capability, too.

    If you have car insurance through them, you can also request insurance cards to be faxed to you.

  8. Does not work in the Pacific Northwest. BofA acquires SeaFirst here years ago but still uses their crappy back-end systems. So online banking lacks compared to the rest of the country and zero mobile access.

  9. I can’t believe no one mentioned ING Direct, which has an excellent mobile site, which allows you to do everything that you can do on their regular website.

    Example of something that is very cool. I was in a foreign country and needed to withdraw some funds from my ING Direct account using a local ATM. When I checked the balance on my checking account I didn’t have enough funds in it. So I logged onto ING’s mobile site, made an instant transfer from my savings into my checking and was able to get as much cash out of the ATM as I needed.
