“The best gift we can give our customers for the holidays is the convenience, ease and peace of mind of mobile banking,” said Bobby Berman, executive vice president. “This will enable our customers to manage their finances anytime, anywhere, safely and securely.”

Frost Mobile offers the traditional services customers use most. In addition to being able to view account balances and activity and pay bills, customers using Frost Mobile can transfer funds between Frost accounts and between financial institutions.

Frost Mobile works over the Internet via a phone’s web browser–rather than as an application. It is free to Frost customers who are registered for My Frost Online Banking, exclusive of any fees that mobile carriers charge for data services.

All customers who sign up for My Frost Online Banking have access to log in to Frost Mobile at frostmobile.com.

“This is an extension of our commitment to enable Frost customers to bank when and where they want, using the technology that they prefer,” said Berman.

And in 2010, Frost Mobile will add a text messaging service, making mobile banking even more accessible.

For more information on using the simple and easy Frost Mobile service, customers are asked to visit www.frostbank.com.
