SAVANNAH—The Coastal Bank, headquartered in Savannah, recently launched new state-of-the-art mobile banking and Text Message Banking (TMB). The Coastal Bank is the first locally-owned financial institution to offer mobile banking and Text Message Banking to customers.
With the addition of these secure mobile banking tools, The Coastal Bank’s business and consumer banking customers can have an expanded range of options for “on the go” banking. Customers have the ability to perform money management tasks quickly and securely through their Web-enabled smart phones or any WiFi connection. 
The Coastal Bank has joined forces with Intuit Financial Services to provide mobile banking, allowing customers to check account balances, transfer money between accounts and pay bills securely from any Web-enabled phone with a browser. Mobile banking serves as an extension of The Coastal
Bank’s popular online banking service, which has been strategically optimized for smart phones.
Text Message Banking enables users to receive account notifications on their text-enabled mobile phone or device. This feature serves as an important complement to browser-based mobile banking because it simplifies access to account balance and transaction information and does not require an Internet connection. 
Text Message Banking allows banking customers to access account balances and recent transaction history from their cell phone quickly, easily and securely. Once customers sign up for mobile banking at and enroll one or more mobile phone numbers, they can start using Text Message Banking features.
“Technology continues to transform the way our customers can manage their money,” said LaHaise. “Our mobile banking offerings are the latest addition to our robust menu of services. We’re delighted to provide our customers with a simple, secure way to bank that puts their account
information at their fingertips 24/7.”
The Coastal Bank does not charge for mobile banking or Text Message Banking, however, standard cell phone fees for Internet access or text messaging may apply.
