BancorpSouth Mobile Banking Trial

link to BancorpSouth website While doing a little end-of-year cleaning, I came across these screenshots from November. They are from Google's cache of BancorpSouth's <> website on Oct. 22, 2006. The pages are no longer available online.

They detail the bank's efforts to recruit 400 volunteers to test mobile banking from their Cingular cellphones. This is the program engineered by Firethorn Mobile (see previous post here.)

The first page below explains the trial, and the second page is the application required to participate. To be eligible, customers had to meet the following requirements:

  • Be BancorpSouth online banking customers
  • Be current Cingular Wireless customers
  • Use a Motorola V-series or SLVR phone
  • Have Internet access from this wireless phone

Participants who completed all three surveys doing the 4- to 6-week trial were to receive a $100 Visa gift card.

See the screenshots below for more details (click to enlarge).
