Q. Why can’t I add a new payee?
A. For your protection, functionality is limited to sending payments to already established payees. To add a new payee, log in to online banking from the website on a computer, select Bill Payment, and add a new payee. You can then submit payments to that payee via your mobile device.

Q. What happens if I lose communication/signal during a transaction?
A. When you complete a transaction from your mobile device (bill payment, funds transfer, etc.) you will receive an SMS Text Message as confirmation that the transaction was successful. If you do not receive this message due to a dropped call or lost signal, check your accounts and re-submit any transactions that did not process.

A. If you simply get a new phone, but are using the same phone number and provider, no changes on your part are necessary. If you switch providers and/or phone numbers, log in to online banking via www.banktbt.com and update your information on the Options > Mobile Settings page. You will not receive SMS Text Messages regarding Mobile Banking transactions if your phone number is not correct.

Q. How can I search for a transaction?
A. You will only be able to view 15 days worth of transaction history on your mobile device. There is not a search feature.

Q. Can I use any mobile device to access my accounts?
