Banking by Text Message [NYT]

From the NYT Bucks Blog
In another sign that mobile banking may be the way of the future, Wells Fargo recently announced that its text banking service is now available to all customers, even those who aren’t enrolled in online banking.
I might give this a try.

I have SMS text banking and find it a snap to use. I send a one word text message and get back my current balance or last five transactions within ten seconds. It's great for checking the status of a mailed-in deposit. It automatically sends my current checking balance every Friday afternoon. (You do need online banking to get to the SMS setup page, though.)
