There is currently no charge associated with the service. However, there may be charges associated with text messaging and data usage on your phone. Check with your wireless phone carrier for more information.

Yes, the mobile banking service utilizes best practices from online banking, such as HTTPS, 128-bit SSL encryption, PIN, or password access and application time-out when your phone is not in use. Only the phones that you personally enroll in the service can access your accounts. In addition, no account data is ever stored on your phone. And in the event your phone is lost or stolen, the service can be immediately disabled by either going online to the Mobile Banking enrollment website or calling us.

We support all the popular US wireless phone carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. If your carrier is not listed when you enroll, select ‘Other’ and try the Mobile Web option, or check back later, as new carriers will be added over time.

Yes, a text messaging and/or data plan is typically needed, as data usage can become expensive without them. Please check with your wireless carrier for more information.

You must first enable your bank account(s) for online banking before using mobile.

Activation is a one-time process that helps ensure your security. After you enroll a phone, you will receive an activation code which will be required to begin using Text or Mobile Banking on your device. We recommend you print your activation code and installation instructions for easy reference during installation.

Mobile Banking

Mobile banking gives you access to your accounts from your mobile web browser or a downloadable mobile banking application, depending on your preference and your phone capabilities. Both options allow you to: view account balances, search recent account activity, transfer funds, and find nearest ATM or branch locations.

After successful activation, your phone will receive a text message with your Mobile Banking URL. You can visit the site at any time at https://mBanking.firstdata.com/wap/home/x2zfnbss/en

Sign in to Online Banking on your computer and choose the Mobile Banking option. Enroll your mobile phone and follow the activation instructions.

If you are experiencing this issue, check your phone settings to ensure that cookies are enabled.

If you would like to reactivate, text R or RECOVER to 96865.

Ensure your phone’s browser has cookies enabled. In addition, enable stylesheets for the best viewing experience.

Troubleshooting

Typically you should receive a text message within a few minutes after enrolling, however sometimes mobile carriers experience delays which slow down text message delivery. While waiting, make sure you phone has wireless signal. In addition, be sure you entered the correct phone number on the enrollment site. If you still do not receive it, contact your wireless carrier to be sure text messaging is enabled on your phone.

Activation codes expire after a specific period of time (usually 24 hours). If you need a new one, return to the Mobile Banking enrollment site (called the Mobile Banking Center) and request a new activation code.

If you get a new phone or change phone numbers, be sure to return to Mobile Banking website via your PC and update your phone profile in the Mobile Banking Center. We recommend removing your old phone and re-enrolling your new phone.

Yes. Visit the Mobile Banking Center and simply enroll (and then activate) another phone number.

At the time of activation on your phone’s browser, a cookie is generated which always tells the Mobile Banking system that you activated (thus allowing you to proceed to the sign on screen). However, some mobile phones will periodically erase all cookies, requiring you to reactivate.

If you are concerned about misuse of your phone, contact your mobile service provider immediately to stop all wireless service. Additionally, sign on to online banking and disable or remove your phone.

Yes. You must re-enroll into mobile banking after you purchase a new phone. Sign in to Online Banking on your computer and under User Services choose the Mobile Enrollment option. Enroll your mobile phone and follow the activation instructions.

This depends on your financial institution. Some financial institutions require that customers/members reset their internet banking password periodically. If you do not reset your internet banking password as required by your financial institution you will be unable to perform certain mobile banking functions.
