How do I enroll in Mobile Banking?

Are there guidelines for creating account "nicknames"?
During enrollment, you are given the option of providing "nicknames" for your accounts. Choosing an appropriate nickname is especially important if you use the SMS text service for Mobile Banking, because your HIST inquiries use the nickname. It's also included in the account history message returned by the financial institution.
For this reason, the nickname should be as short as possible. There is a maximum of ten characters, and fewer than five is recommended if you plan to use the SMS text service.
An SMS text message can contain only 160 characters total. Using as few as possible in your account nickname helps ensure that your account information will fit into a single message.
