Another US Bank implements transfers by text

Dollar Bank is putting a new spin on telephone banking: Text messaging.

The Pittsburgh bank is the first in the region, and one of the first in the nation, to allow customers to do transactions by sending a text message from a cell phone. The service became active Tuesday.

Dollar customers can transfer funds instantly by using the touch pad on their cell phones. They can also send Dollar a message requesting account balances, including having balance information sent on regular intervals. It can all be done on a 24/7 basis.

Good news, good news. I’d like to see more of this type of service!
