Default Bank of America shortcut on 8900

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, folks.

Recently I downloaded the BOA shortcut to the downloads folder on my 8900 Javelin. Whenever I try to access the BOA site, i get to a certain spot and then I am told that it is "Unable to Sign In". Is there a specific known cause for this? My phone does not have an IT policy.

Thanks.

I use Opera mini to access and use B of A and find it highly effective.

Never had that problem with the BoA site/shortcut and I've been using it for months now.

May want to clear you Browser cache/history.

Is it safe to be visiting and logging into my bank account via my Curve?

I wonder whether it will be possible at all to intercept the communication between BlackBerry and the internet server of the carrier. I guess mobile banking from BB is more secure than doing it from your computer.
