    Yes. The only option is to change the website preference from the mobile version to desktop via IE settings....either that or use another browser like UC Browser. I use the WebApps app and their Chase mobile-designed app. Plus I can set it to the start screen as if it is an actual app.

    Here's the link:

    I know this is ridiculous but it all reeks of an organized plot against Microsoft.

    I'm not COMPLETELY serious because I know it's far fetched.

    It is uncanny how Chase and BoA both dropped their perfectly serviceable WP Apps within one week.

    Someone who sounded as if they knew what they were talking about said that the m. site ceased to function because the App is barred (in the case of BoA). I'm not so sure. I'm definitely not an expert at HTML or even a novice, but the App must have been more than a web-wrapper if it allowed Mobile Deposit. Seems to me either A) an oversite that blocking the App borks WP ability to use the m. site or B) an additional and intentional "discouragement" of Windows Phone users.

    Two of the largest banks in the United States (http://www.usnews.com/news/business/...d-stress-tests) suddenly having to "scrimp and save" by cutting out Windows Phone support at virtually the same time is, if happenstance, a complete statistical anomaly equivalent to getting struck by lightning 2 days after winning the lottery.

    Absolutely; something smells rotten in Denmark and it isn't the runny cheese.

    Are they not actively blocking access from WP too?

    I checked just for the heck of it. Opens fine on UC Browser, Maxthon, and IE 11 on my phone

    Mobile web banking is not listed as supported on Bank of America's website. It sometimes allows me to login but very inconsistently.

    None of this makes any professional sense to me. Which leaves me to wonder if the reason has to do with the fact that the man running Microsoft is Indian-American.

    Now your remark makes totally no sense to me!!!.
    Just because a bank in America dropped a app you wonder if it is "Indian-American" related?

    Maybe you're right Harrie-S but I cannot see why a bank as large as Chase would go the extra step after abandoning the app to blocking bank members from accessing their own money in a secure way. It makes no sense at all.

    I agree with you that it does not make sense. (but then again I am not in the board of the Chase bank or a board member of Microsoft)
    But I have problems with your wondering part.
    A. Because of MS chairmens decent MS did nothing to prevent that Chase did what they did.
    B Chase dropped the support of windows because of MS chairmens decent.

    Above "assumptions" can be made very easy for nearly everything (and often are made)
    And they never result in something positive but only create "hate" and before you know it the remarks have nothing to do anymore with the subject and follow Godwin's law.

    This situation is a reminder that sites like Windows Central is mostly a clearinghouse for press releases. That is useful and I'm glad for a single place to read them with a few reviews thrown in. But I really wish there was some investigative journalism.

    It really does not make business sense for those banks to originally want those apps for their customers and then kill them off UNLESS there are factors the banks would rather keep secret.

    It is definitely possible that the banks got some carrot or stick from the mobile competition. Or did they never care about the apps but they were originally written or subsidized by Microsoft and now that some agreement with MS has expired they get trashed. Or did the banks try to negotiate something from MS to keep the apps and someone ham-fisted the negotiation and the apps were killed for spite.

    Maybe Chase and BofA are two of hundreds of companies who have pitched out tons of $$ to MS to support XP beyond its support cycle, and now they have their panties in a wad.

    PS - I could rummage around the mobile chase website with no issues.

    How about the possibility that they were both so hot to be given a chance to get in on the chance to support Apple Pay that they either promised or sought to ingratiate Apple by actively not supporting Windows Phone?

    Screw those companies. I don't even know why YOU would support them. So many banks to chose from.

    Not even an issue for me. Glad I don't support or bank with them either.

    As soon as the feces hit the fan I made my arrangements and severed all business with BoA. I agree wholeheartedly.
