BUFFALO, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2010 -- 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 www.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 messaging rates will apply. Customers can log on to M&T Web Banking to enroll.
