    There is a program called Bankarama.

    I don't know how good it is. I will install it and play with it.

    Edit: It's crap!

    Why not just go to your bank's website and see if it has a mobile site? I am one click and a password from my bank balance on all my BB devices at all times.

    yes there is, PageOnce. Great app. You can also check Credit Cards and other accounts all in once place. Very secure as well. Been using it for over a year on the iPhone.

    Brett, I agree with sirthinks. Try your bank web site 1st to see if they allow online banking - MANY of them do and they probably have good security set up for their customers too!

    Agreed: check the bank mobile site (if implemented).

    I used to use SplashMoney on Palm; I finally got around to reviewing the BB port this week. In any case, Splash did (and still) syncs with my bank account wirelessly OTA. So that worked perfectly. Splash Doesn't work with ALL banks, but a lot of the major ones.
    So, for now, I use Splash and Yodlee Money mobile to manage all my accounts. Yodlee is a free account aggregator. Works great on BB.

    You guys banking over your phone - make sure you're software has some kind of encryption. They don't call these devices "radios" for nothing. All this is transmitted over the air waves.

    I always try to be a little cautious about what I transmit having been the victim of identity theft twice.

    I installed pageonce and it's not exactly Storm compatible. It only uses half the screen, the keyboard won't go away, won't go to landscape mode and it's quirky about using the touchscreen. I like the idea of the app but I'm not sure about paying $4.95 a month for it when it's a little hard to use on the Storm.

    I also tried Yodlee but I don't see an app for it. I guess you can only check it online? Is that correct? I prefer having an app. I guess I will keep pageonce for a few days and see if it's worth the 5 bucks a month.

    I'm too cheap for that. I can't see taking hard earned cash out of my bank just to check how much I have in the bank.

    My bank is saved in my Bookmarks. One click and an 8 digit password, I have a FREE update of what is in my account.

    Well pageonce is a lot more than just checking a bank account. You can add banks, credit cards, utilities, frequent flier miles, investments accounts etc etc.

    I also found that you can pay a one time fee of $30 instead of paying a monthly fee. I found out it's not exactly Storm compatible yet but they hope to come out with a Storm version in early 2009. It works ok for now I guess. If you want to pay the one time fee instead, the link is http://store.handmark.com/p/108572/P...r-Blackberry/-.

    Pageonce seems to be eerily similar to Yodlee.

    Looks good, though.

    Actually, Pageonce does sound great. It does do the same exact thing that Yodlee does, but you can't beat a dedicated interface for BB. I wonder what type of footprint (KB/MB) it comes with?
