I do not see my handset listed when checking out. Can I still purchase for my phone?

If your handset is not listed after selecting your wireless service provider on the Checkout page, it is most likely not currently compatible with Mobatech software.

We are working to add additional devices on a daily basis, so please check back often or e-mail support@mobatech.com to ask about your specific device at any time.

Will I be using my phone minutes when using Mobile Checkbook?

You will not be using any of your cellular minutes when using a Mobatech application. In fact, Mobatech products will work even if you had no cell phone signal at all! Mobatech software is installed on to your phone in a similar fashion that software is installed onto a desktop or notebook computer and will run directly off of your phone without any connection required.

Why should I use Mobile Checkbook?

Fewer and fewer people today are carrying around bulky checkbooks and check registers to record account transactions as the use of debit and check cards soars. Although the popular method of payment for consumers has changed, the idea of keeping track of one's bank account remains as important as ever. The account statements and balances obtained from your bank's web site or from ATM machines are often misleading because they do not always include your recent transactions or checks that have not yet cleared. This often leads to individuals having a false sense of their account balance and overdrafting their account. The only way to always know your exact balance is to record transactions when you make them. Mobile Checkbook makes this process fast and convenient. Whether you are in the car, at a resturant or out shopping, with Mobile Checkbook in your cell phone you will always have immediate access to accurate account information.

What steps are involved in entering a transaction?

Recording transactions requires three quick and easy steps.

1) Select whether you are recording a withdrawal or deposit.
2) Enter the amount of your transaction.
3) Enter an optional transaction payee, memo or check number.

The date and time of your transaction is automatically stored for your convenience. This information can be modified when entering a transaction or after one has already been stored.

How can I remove previously recorded transactions?

Mobile Checkbook provides two options for removing transactions.

1) Delete Transaction is used to void a previously recorded transaction and permanetly remove it from the Transaction List. This option should be used if a transaction is incorrectly recorded and needs to be removed instead of modified.

2) Clear History is used to clear one or more transactions from the Transaction List. Clear History does not affect your current account balance. This option should be used to free up storage space on your phone or if you would like to shorten the list of transactions on your Transaction List.

To clear all of your transactions select the most recent transaction you have recorded from your 'Transaction List'. This will be the entry located at the bottom of the 'Transaction List'. Choose the 'Edit' option and then 'Clear'History'. When you select 'Clear History' the transaction that is currently selected and all prior transactions are cleared.

When entering transaction descriptions, how do I make it type single letters instead of word combinations?

The predictive text is a feature built into many new handsets called T9. T9 is designed to make it easier to input words but it can be a bit confusing at first. When you are entering a word such as "test", you would enter "8378" with each number only being pressed once. T9 will automatically recognize that you are trying to enter the word "test". On older phones you would have to type 8 for T, then 33 for E, 7777 for S and 8 again for T. As you can see, with T9 you only have to enter 4 numbers to get the same word so it is much much faster.

If you do not want to use T9, select the menu button when you are in a text field and switch from "Word" to "Alpha".
