How to Register for “SBI Freedom” Mobile Banking Service
The registration process for Mobile Banking Service consists of two processes :
(i) Over mobile handset
(ii) At SBI ATM or at branch
Process over mobile handset
Step I
Send a SMS to 567676 (e.g.MBSREG Nokia 6600). You will get a User ID, default MPIN and a link by SMS which can be used to download the application if you have GPRS connectivity. If you have a non-java mobile phone with GPRS connection, you can use the Mobile Banking Service over WAP (explained under “WAP based Mobile Banking Service”). If you have a non java mobile phone without GPRS connection, you can use Mobile Banking Service over USSD which will be introduced by the Bank shortly.
Step II
If GPRS connectivity is not available, please do the following. Download the application on your PC by going to the website. After downloading, transfer application to your mobile using the data cable that was received along with the phone. If the phone and the PC have Bluetooth facility you can transfer the
application from the PC to the handset via the Bluetooth. If these are not feasible you may get assistance from the branch for installing the application on your
handset.
Step III
After installation of the application, please login using the User ID received in the SMS. The User ID is case sensitive and has to be entered as received over SMS. After opening the mobile banking application, you will be prompted to change the MPIN. If not prompted, please select “Settings” from Main Menu and choose “Change MPIN”. The default MPIN has to be entered in the “old MPIN” and a new MPIN of your choice (6 digits) in the “new MPIN” which has to be confirmed by entering the new MPIN once again in “Confirm new MPIN”. Send the request. You will receive the confirmation of change in MPIN over SMS. THE MPIN SHOULD HAVE SIX CHARACTERS ONLY.
Process at branch or SBI ATM
After completing the above process, you can complete the registration at the Home Branch of your account or at the nearest SBI ATM. AT the branch, fill up the required form which will be entered into the system and your account will be activated next day. At the ATM, after swiping the Debit Card, please choose the opt ion ‘Services’ and then select ‘Mobile Banking’. Under Mobile Banking, choose the option to ‘Register’, enter your mobile number and re-enter the number to confirm registration. You will receive a SMS regarding activation of your account. You can then use all the services offered under the Mobile Banking Services.
