A total of 317 students were approached which was considered as a preliminary way to observe their perception over SMS banking. Through various SPSS analyses, we discovered that 38 percent of the male respondents and 61 percent of the female respondents know what is SMS? Surprisingly, only female respondents used SMS banking with 0.95 percent, which is consistent with the study by Laforet and Li (2005) and Howcroft, Hamilton and Hewer (2002).

In general, it can be concluded that student’s perception were not homogeneous and an education level was insufficient to explain the SMS banking usage among the respondents.
