The Mobile Web version is OK, but sure is slower and takes a lot more keystrokes than the old iPhone app.   I realize the old app will only work until Sept. 30.  

How soon is "coming soon" for that new app?

Tim - You ask a fair question and it is one many of our customers are asking.  Our development team is working hard to bring Mobile Banking to an app that can be downloaded from the iTunes store.   We should know more on timing very soon but expect a solution within the next 30 days.  This is a top priority for us.

Please be aware, the login will function the same on the app as it does in the mobile web version, requiring a Login ID and Password. 

Watch for more updates as they become available. Thank you for your patience.

Is the Mobile Banking text message feature free?

Arvest Blog Admin on 11/21/2011 at 8:48 AM

Hayley- Good question. The new Mobile Banking service offered through Arvest is free.  When using the SMS/text feature, the only charge you may incur would tie to your SMS/text messaging data plan through your wireless service provider.

Thank you for visiting the Arvest Blog!

I learned today, when trying to register a new phone number for SMS banking, that they no longer offer this feature. It still works on my current phone, you just can't sign up any new numbers. I'm sure it will stop working at some point. This is a terrible move, in my opinion. SMS banking is so fast and easy. It is WAY better than the app. I might actually change to a different bank that still offers this feature.
