However, in their defence, they have a multitude of ways of 
communicating, including Twitter[1], YouTube[2], Skype and Facebook[3]. 
What other bank do you know of that has 24/7 support via a free VOIP 

I suspect the demographic for which UBank is designed would have almost 
100% mobile phone coverage. That however is a complete assumption. Feel 
free to ask the UBank guys yourself why they require a mobile phone number.

Disclaimer: I am one of the vendor engineers responsible for part of the 
technology stack upon which UBank.com.au runs. However, I do not work 
for the bank, nor do I have any financial ties to it. I don't even have 
a UBank account. :)
