Econet-Zimbabwe has got an innovative product called Ecocash, a user can check their account balance using a basic mobile phone. No need for a smartphone....as long as the phone can connect to ussd. A user can also move money from the Bank to their Mobile wallet and From their wallet to the Bank, pay bills etc...thus you can bank on the Go...

Many of the European countries seem to be ahead of the curve on introducing new mobile features. Bank of the West is owned by BNP Paribas though and I expect that with the help BNP Paribas they'll be rolling out other mobile features that are common in other more innovative countries as well.

in Poland already two banks has this feature. One is showing the amount which is on main account, other is showing only a bar with balance status in percentage (in settings you can set up the amount which for you is 100%).

As studies have shown the majority of mobile bankers mostly use the channel for quickly checking balances, this seems like a good convenience for them, assuming security isn't compromised
