AT&T and Firethorn, a Qualcomm company, have announced the availability
of their mobile banking application for iPhone.

The companies said the Mobile Banking on AT&T lets users securely and
efficiently manage their finances, including checking balances and
transaction history, transferring funds, receiving offers, viewing and
paying bills, and tracking rewards points.

The service is now available for all Firethorn financial institution
partners, including America First Credit Union, Arvest Bank,
BancorpSouth, Carolina First, FirstBank, Mercantile Bank, SunTrust,
Synovus, USAA and Wachovia. Additionally, iPhone customers will have
access to any new financial institution added in the future.

"Our customers are increasingly using their mobile phones as a hub from
which they can manage nearly all aspects of their lives, and in
addressing that trend, we've made it a priority to give them
flexibility and control in managing their finances," said David
Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility & Consumer Markets.
"The extension of this convenience and functionality to iPhone
customers is further delivery on our commitment to this space."

AT&T and Firethorn have collaborated since 2006 to provide usability

and reliability in mobile banking.

"Mobile Banking on AT&T with iPhone embodies the exciting evolution
that mobile financial services must undertake to keep pace with
consumers' busy lifestyles," said Tripp Rackley, chief executive
officer, Firethorn. "Our partners expect us to offer them the best
technology available to help their users manage their finances. The
Mobile Banking application promises ease of use, security and high
visibility -- all strategically designed to achieve mass market
adoption -- and we are proud to help make it a reality."
