Mobile Text Banking

If you can send a Text Message or SMS, you can request information about your balances and recent transactions. We'll send you a text message right back with your most up-to-date account details.

To help identify your accounts and make texting easier, we recommend setting up the account short names in Internet Banking. To do this, login to FNBonline and click on the Options tab at the top.  Choose Mobile Settings >Text Mobile Settings and choose your mobile short names.

To access, text 89549 with a short code:
