    My bank website requires cookies. How have you got cookies set? I have mine set 'To Visited'. However, one suggestion that might work, is to 'Clear Cookies' and then try again. If you're running iOS 4.2 you might want to close the app. Press the 'Home' button twice and it opens the Multi-task bar. Press *and hold* any icon under they start to 'jiggle'. You'll notice the jiggling icons (of all the apps that are currently running) have a cross in the upper left hand side. Press the cross on the Safari icon and this will close Safari (note it only closes the app, it doesn't delete it). Now either press the 'Home' button again or touch the Home Screen to exit the Multi-task bar and start up Safari again. I've found this sometimes fixes 'problems'

    Good luck

    On my bank (BOFA) I had to download the portable app instead of using the website. I couldn't get past the security screen any other way.. even using atomic set to ie7

    Yea that worked, I knew about closing the task with the long hold and restarting....I had changed the cookies to always I believe when I tried something yesterday so I put it back to "alwayed ", cleared cache, and history and everything working and all good now. Thanks alot! Not sure what the whole thing means about the cookies from visited to always?
