Just noticed today that ICICI Bank has launched a mobile banking app on the Android Market. It is named iMobile. Anyone here using it?

hate standard chartered for their 'chalta hai' attitude. They are not competitive at all. (Its a long story, not describing now).On a different note, SBI has a banking application which they advertise in all their branches very actively. The mobile they show in their poster ads is an iphone , which shows the application running. But when I checked in their website, iphone is not in the supported handset list. I checked with their branch, and the manager told me that phone banking related queries can only be handled by the CC helpdesk, as its controlled from Mumbai office. Dont know whether they can use iphone snaps, to advertise when they do not have an iphone application.

heh. reliance 3g page showed apple iphone initially. they seems to have removed it now. i guess iphone images are more popular as stock images! another thing i wanted to mention about icici bank here. i needed to deposit a small check in dollar currency. they have a branch in sector 31 gurgaon. the guys at the branch told me that i would have to go to some other branch as they are not yet authorized to accept payments in international currencies. i went to that branch specifically because it is a pretty new one and not many people go there. all the other ICICI branches in the main areas of the city is pretty much jammed with people through the day. you would have to wait for as long as an hour ... probably more to get to their customer support desk. dropped the idea to drop the check. would now get it done at standard chartered instead.

Try a Delhi branch instead. Didnt knew that ICICI was this popular in Gurgaon.

arey bhai. i already know 2 branches in gurgaon which accepts international currency checks. the point was that every branch of theirs should accept these. i mean... they make me fill up a special form for each of these checks. in the end, these are regular checks that have to be processed like other checks. and they get to charge a good amount to process them.

its crap one, they use sms for any actions done in imobile :( that even to premium number where charges were high... and no info about the usage of sms in market page, nonsense :(... i came to know only from after i got a bill, where more than 150 rs gone on this. since i was just testing/experimenting all the services on imobile with the thought it will use gprs for all the communication....
