    USAA has an app for mobile banking. The Storm (not surprisingly) is not yet listed as a supported device. The devices they list as supported are 8130 (Pearl), 8830, 8330 (Curve).
    I would like to run this app if there is a chance it will work.

    What do you think?
    Which device should I choose for set-up if I try this?
    Thank you for your replies.

    I'm not sure what app you're talking about, but the one I got worked fine on my storm. When I use the browser to go the USAA mobile web site and click on the "get a blackberry app", all I get is an icon that takes me to the same page. It works fine, but I'd rather not waste the memory or screen space on an icon, and just use a bookmark instead.

    Here is a link to the application description, it is "USAA Mobile Banking Application

    With this convenient application installed on your mobile device, you can skip the mobile browser just open the application and log in with a single PIN. Now you're one click away from banking wherever you are.

    Ok got it, thank you.
    USAA Mobile Banking does support the Storm. When setting up on USAA's site there is a Storm option.
    At first glance it looks much easier to navigate than going through the browser.

    What downloaded on my phone was
    Firethorn Ver.3.0

    I have the "Mobile Banking" application and i'm not a huge fan. It looks like from the website Link
    and this image:

    that there is actually a USAA developed BB application. Like the OP and other people, I only get a link to download the mobile.usaa.com launcher. Is there a way to trick the site into thinking I am using a supported phone so I can download the app?

    Supported phones are:
    The BlackBerry app is free and available now for the following models:
    BlackBerry Bold (9000)
    BlackBerry Curve (8300, 8310, 8320, 8330, 8350, 8520)
    BlackBerry 8800 Series (8800, 8820, 8830)

    Your BlackBerry must be running OS 4.5 or greater.
    Edit: I used a Firefox extension to change the user agent string to that of a BlackBerry Bold and what do you know... I get the link:
    I put the link into my Storm browser and downloaded the app. Unfortunately, it is unusable on the storm in normal or compatibility mode.
