Send a text message containing one of the Mobiliti keywords to “Short Code” 71806
Why is my Mobiliti text message coming from 71806?
The number you send text messages to may seem like a phone number, but it’s actually something called a short code. Text message can be sent and received from these short codes in addition to traditional mobile phone numbers.
“Short Code number” = (71806) is the short code from which you’ll receive all mobile text messages. To make it easier to recognize messages from your Credit Union you can add this “short code” to the contact list in your phone as “Credit Union” or whatever you choose.
What are the SMS messaging keywords and how do I use them?
Words you use to request your account information, after you have signed up for Mobiliti. Each of these keywords will request an SMS text message with the information shown below:
BAL/BALANCE/BALANCES/B – Request the balances of all checking and savings accounts.
STMT/TRAN/HIST nickname – Request the most recent posted transactions of the account with this nickname.
The correct format for the transaction history keywords is “STMT (account) nickname”
For example “STMT sav1″ will request the transaction history of your account named “sav1″
If you do not supply an account nickname you will receive an SMS message explaining that an account nickname is needed when using the transaction history keyword.
NEXT or MORE –
If any of the above responses concludes with “Replay NEXT or MORE. Simply text “NEXT” OR “MORE” TO (short code) to receive the remainder of the message ”
HELP/HLP – Requests a list of mobile keywords and support information.
STOP/END/QUIT/CANCEL/UNSUBSCRIBE – Will unsubscribe your mobile phone from receiving Alert message.
When texting “BAL” followed by a nickname, all accounts balances appear rather than just the account I requested. Why did this happen?
The “BAL” text message always shows all account balances. Nicknames are not used with the “BAL” text message; they are used with the “HIST” requests.
What should I do if I do not receive a response from a keyword I have sent?
Please confirm you are addressing new text messages or replying to a recent text message from the correct “short code”. Please verify that you are using the correct spelling of the keyword, and if you are specifying an account, you are using the correct account nickname.
