Does anyone use an all online bank, such as Ally Bank or ING Direct Bank? Just curious if any of you do, and what your thoughts are? TIA

I have never but I do have one recommendation. I would find a way to speak with their customer service before I ever switched over because that is who you would be dealing with regarding debit card disputes stemming from fraudulant charges, any potential O/D's that could stem from bank error, service charge errors, account maintenance, etc. I'm not saying there is a problem but I would just make sure there isn't first. The biggest advantage with traditional banking is that you can develop a relationship with your banker and sometimes that can work to your advantage but the financial industry sucks right now and there is a lot of turnover so developing a long term relationship with your banker may not be possible.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
I have an account with ING...it's not my main account though. I actually signed up to get a sign up bonus and only have a small portion of my direct deposit going there. I've been with them for 3 months though and I like them so far. I didn't talk to anyone first, but BayTider makes a good suggestion. If I ever do have an issue with them though, it's not like I'll have a lot of money tied up.
On a side note, not sure if you are looking at switching financial institutions or it'll be a secondary account like mine, but it wouldn't hurt to look into credit unions either. As BayTider suggested, developing a relationship with someone can be huge. I'm actually a branch manager/loan officer at a credit union and I have members that come directly to me regardless of their issue...and I'm always more than happy to help them out even if it isn't something I typically deal with.
I really appreciate the feedback guys. +1's for your help.
I'm soooo leary of that...If there's ever a F up, I want a PHYSICAL place I can stand in and raise hell until it's fixed...
