Awesome Bank!

With a single review and a 4-star rating, you may think that this is review is being written by someone who works there, but I assure you that I am not in any way affiliated, other than banking there.  I currently hold accounts with Bank of America, Chase, and Austin Telco, and Austin Telco rocks!

I no longer live in Texas, so banking remotely with Austin Telco is a tad difficult, especially since I can't do deposits via my cellphone etc as other banks do.  But I keep my Austin Telco account as my personal bank account because they are just awesome.  Service is great (unlike BoA), fees are reasonable (unlike Chase and BoA), and I can easily reach people by phone (unlike BoA) who are always friendly.

So why not 5 stars?  Because their technology is a bit behind compared to other banks who can do cellphone deposits, etc.  That's enough for me to fairly take away one star, but no where near enough of a reason for me to bank in my own city.  Austin Telco rocks!
