CTIA-The Wireless Association® Highlights How Wireless Is Changing Money And Commerce

WASHINGTON, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wireless technology continues to change the way that consumers interact with their money, whether it's through banking apps or how they pay for their purchases. CTIA-The Wireless Association® takes a look at mCommerce today and its potential for the future in the April edition of the Wonder of Wireless webcast and on its blog.

  • Mobile Commerce: An Evolving Business: Wireless at Work As customers start to use more mobile commerce services and applications, we asked a panel of experts about how mCommerce is evolving and what the future holds for consumers and regulators at MobileCON.                                          
  • Mobile Interactions and Payments: Insider Interview Chief Technology Officer Ryan Hughes for Isis, the mobile payments initiative formed by AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless, discusses how mobile payments and the wireless industry are integrating smart interactions and security to provide consumers a seamless mCommerce experience.
  • Mobile Banking Bridges Economic Gap: Policy Point In this month's Policy Point, we look at how mobile banking applications are helping Americans who either don't have bank accounts or don't have adequate access to their banks so they can cash checks, transfer funds and access account information anywhere and anytime. Thanks to mobile banking, these users are able to save thousands of dollars in fees and charges.
  • Oregon Man Saves Trapped Child: Wireless Lifesaver Chris O'Neill was driving along Lake Oswego, Oregon when he saw an SUV teetering over an embankment. After using his cellphone to call 911, he risked his life by crawling into the unsteady SUV to save the 4-year old strapped in the backseat.
