How do I access First Community's Mobile banking on my Palm?
First, please ensure that your PalmOne Handheld has an Internet connection via a wireless Internet service provider (Wireless ISP). Once you verify that you can connect to the Internet, you can access First Community Mobile Banking by simply entering the following URL in your browser: go.firstcommunity.com
RIM Blackberry Phones
How do I access First Community Mobile Banking on my RIM Blackberry Pager?
You must ensure that you have a browser, such as the Go.Web browser, installed on your RIM Blackberry. If you are not sure if your RIM Blackberry has a browser installed, please check with your service provider. Once you verify that you have a browser, you may simply enter our URL in your browser: go.firstcommunity.com
Why am I unable to log in using my Blackberry phone?
Please check the settings on your Blackberry phone to ensure it is enabled to browse Secure/SSL sites.
When I attempt to go to: go.firstcommunity.com, I get an error message.
You may get the message "Access Denied: Insecure SSL Request"
When clicking on More Info, you may also receive the following message:
"Your MDS has been configured to deny SSL requests to servers that have certificates which are untrusted or expired. Try using Device Side SSL which can be modified in your TLS Options. Contact your system administrator with any questions."
If you receive these messages, change your Blackberry Options settings as follows: Select Options, then TLS; under the TLS Default, select Change Option to "Handheld," not "Proxy."
I keep getting locked out of my account when I try and log in on my mobile phone. Why doesn't it accept my log-in information?
Using your mobile phone to enter data takes a little practice. Passwords are case sensitive; make sure you are entering your password exactly as you set it up in EXPRESSnet Online Banking. If your password begins with a lower-case letter, you may need to use your phone's shift key to change the default from upper case. In addition, some phones require extra shift key presses to enter numbers instead of letters.
Why can't I see the first few transactions of my account history?
Due to the screen size on the mobile phone, only a limited amount of information can be displayed. Some mobile phones take you to the middle or bottom of a new page instead of the top. To make sure you are at the top of the page, use the up arrow key on the phone to scroll all the way to the top of the page. If you want to view more information below, use the down arrow key to scroll down until you come to a "More" link. When you click on "More," it will take you to the next page of information.
How do I know if my phone is Web-enabled?
If you have a MiniBrowser, MicroBrowser or Wireless Web on your phone's main menu, then it is Web-enabled. Contact your mobile phone carrier to confirm that your phone is Web-enabled and that the service is activated.
