Bank of America has a nice mobile banking site, but I've found that I have to use the Internet Browser (which goes directly to the web) instead of the Blackberry Browser (which goes through the BES). You can switch between them under Options > Advanced Settings > Browser.
As for security, it's the same encryption as on your PC, and it's certainly safer than paper checks or in-person credit card transactions.
