More People Comfortable With Mobile Banking

Mobile phone users are becoming more comfortable making banking and purchase transactions while on-the-go according to a new study from Harris Interactive.

The study found that 16 percent of mobile phone subscribers currently use mobile banking services, with 60 percent doing so at least once a week. Thirty-five percent of those who do not use mobile banking or buy on-the-go are interested in checking bank account balances and transferring funds using their mobile devices. Thirty-three percent said they would like to receive text messages from their banks.
