Mobile Banking FAQ
What are the different ways I can access my account?
Mobile Banking enables anyone with an online banking account to access their account information from a mobile device. There are three ways to access your accounts:
- Send a text message using your mobile device
- Use a mobile browser on your mobile device
- Download an application to your mobile device
You can choose any or all of these options, depending on the capabilities of your mobile device.
What are the requirements?
To use the SMS text messaging service, your mobile device must send and receive text messages to and from a short code. Older mobile devices (flip phones) are capable of sending and receiving text messages, but are probably not compatible with Mobile Banking. Please note that some mobile service carriers charge for outgoing text messages or for each message sent and received. Message and data rates may apply.
To use the mobile browser service, your mobile device must have an Internet browser and may require a data service plan. Message and data rates may apply. You access the Mobile Banking website using the link sent by SMS text message during the enrollment process.
To use the Mobile Banking downloadable application, your mobile device must have an operating system that supports application downloads and may require a data service plan. Message and data rates may apply. You download the Lee Bank Mobile Banking application using the link sent by SMS text message during the enrollment process or visit the online application store for your mobile device.
