M&T Bank customers now have three ways to securely access their accounts using their mobile devices: Mobile Text Banking; Mobile Web Banking; and a brand new App for iPhone.
The M&T Mobile Banking application for iPhone is now available, at no charge, by clicking the App Store button on an Apple mobile device and searching for "M&T."
"Over 80% of Americans have mobile phones and we keep our phones close by at all times - often even closer than our wallets," said Michael Shryne, senior vice president and manager of Alternative Banking at M&T Bank. "Banking with a mobile phone gives our customers convenient access to their bank at their fingertips, anytime, anywhere."
With the release of the iPhone application, mobile phone users now have three different ways to bank on the go with M&T:
* App for iPhone allows customers to get started with a few basics, including an M&T Web Banking account, an iTunes account, and an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The app allows Web Banking services, including viewing account details, transferring money between linked M&T accounts and making payments on M&T loans. Users of the iPhone and iPad will also be able to easily find the nearest M&T branch or ATM using the GPS services on their mobile device. During the first 7 days of availability, M&T's application rose to the 5th most downloaded free finance application on the App Store.
* Mobile Web Banking offers similar banking functions for most other mobile devices with web access, including BlackBerry, Android. Customers can access their accounts by visiting mtb.com on their mobile browser and view account details, transfer money between linked M&T accounts and make payments on M&T loans.
* Mobile Text Banking allows customers to check account balances, view recent transactions, and find nearby ATMs and branches using the text messaging feature on any mobile phone. Users send a short text message to MandT (62638) and, within seconds, receive a text message with the information they requested. The service is free for M&T Web Banking customers, although standard text messagessaging rates will apply. Customers can log on to M&T Web Banking to enroll.
