How do I get started?
Go to www.oldsecond.com. Complete and submit the O2 Mobile Deposit enrollment form. Once your enrollment form is received, you will receive an e-mail with your assigned User ID and a separate e-mail with your Temporary Password. Visit the Apple App store or Android™ Google Play store and download the free O2 Mobile Deposit App. Using your assigned Username and Temporary Password, you are ready to start using O2 Mobile Deposit. (The first time you sign in-- please change the Temporary Password to a password that you have selected.)
Will I be able to deposit through O2 Mobile Deposit from only one mobile device?
No. You can use any iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ Smart Phone that has the O2 Mobile Deposit app. Your O2 Mobile Deposit Username and Password lets the bank identify you as an enrolled user, not the device.
What if I get a new phone?
Because the service is tied to a specific Username and Password, the only action you need to take when you purchase a new phone is to download the iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ Smart Phone application.
Can I only deposit to my Old Second checking account?
No. Using O2 Mobile Deposit you can also deposit to your Old Second savings or money market accounts if you included these as deposit options on your enrollment form. If you want to add another account or a new account to your mobile deposit option, complete the O2 Mobile Deposit change form found at www.oldsecond.com.
What types of items can I deposit using O2 Mobile Deposit?
You can deposit any type of original negotiable check or money order drawn on a U.S. chartered bank that is payable in U.S. dollars.

The checks can be drawn on personal, business, or government accounts.

No. Two party checks (a check made payable to someone else and signed over to you) should not be deposited using Mobile Deposit.

What if I go over my daily or monthly deposit or transaction limit?
If you go over your transaction or deposit limit the transaction may not be approved. You will receive an error message.

What does it cost to use the O2 Mobile Deposit Service?
At this time the only charge for using the service is if you make a temporary request to increase the number of items you can deposit. You would then be charged a $1.00 per item fee in excess of 20 items per personal user or in excess of 40 items per business user. Excess item fees will be charged to your account at the time they are incurred. *You could incur fees from your mobile/wireless service provider related to the use of O2 Mobile Deposit based on your specific calling plan.
What do I do with the checks that I deposit through O2 Mobile Deposit?
You should secure the check in a safe place and note on the check that it was part of a mobile deposit. The check should be kept for at least sixty days after you receive your e-mail deposit confirmation. At that time you should destroy the deposited check so that no one attempts to negotiate it in the future. Before destroying, verify on your account statement that the deposit was received and credited to your account.
How should checks deposited through O2 Mobile Deposit be endorsed?
The check should be signed (endorsed) by the payee writing FOR DEPOSIT ONLY under the endorsement.
