Bank of America doesn't charge for Text Banking
There is no cost to enroll in Text Banking— Bank of America does not charge you for this convenience. (Check with your mobile carrier for any specific fees or charges that might apply for sending or receiving text messages.)
Lost or stolen mobile phone
Cancel Text Banking immediately by calling customer service at 1.800.604.9961. Or you can sign in to Online Banking and go to Help & Support > Mobile Banking > Set up/Manage Mobile Banking Settings. In the Text Banking section, choose Delete Device next to the mobile device that was lost or stolen.
If you find your mobile device later, you can re-enroll that same mobile number.
Getting multiple messages
You may receive more than 1 message if it’s longer than 160 characters (the limit for our text messages). For an extensive transaction history, the response may require multiple messages.
Receiving information for multiple accounts
For the commands BAL, SRCH or ACCTS, our reply will include information for your first 15 accounts. This may exceed the 160-character limit, so you may receive multiple messages. Specify the account by texting the command plus the account type and the last 4 digits of the account number. For example, to get the balance of a savings account, text BAL SAV4576.
Changing your mobile number or service provider
Sign in to Online Banking and go to Select Profile in Settings > Mobile Settings > Text Banking > Edit Number to change your mobile number or update your provider.
Ending your Text Banking service
Texting STOP, CANCEL or any similar command from your mobile device will not end your Text Banking service. You must call us at 1.800.604.9961 or sign in to Online Banking and select the Mobile settings link from the Profile & Settings navigation menu.
