Business Group Mobile

Running on data only?

If you’re not big on voice calls or sending texts, a data-only SIM might be just what you need for connecting a secondary device, your fleet car or turning your mobile into a WiFi hotspot to process that sale.

Data-only SIMs come with the same 40GB of max speed data per month, then endless data at reduced speed – all for just $20/month.

The number of data-only SIMs can’t exceed the number of full-service SIMs on your account.

Frequent questions

How do I bring my current number to Nova?
  1. Keep your old SIM in your device.
  2. Log in to the Nova Hub and request to bring your number to Nova.
  3. You’ll receive a text message from 2542 letting you know the transfer process is underway.
  4. It usually takes around 2 hours for the transfer to go through, at which point you'll lose service on your old SIM.
  5. When you lose service, power off your device and then pop in your new Nova SIM.
  6. Power on your device and your number will be active on your new Nova SIM.

If you have an iPhone we also recommend turning iMessage off and on. You can find this under Settings > Messages > iMessage. iPhones are known to have slight delays in updating their texting services (for up to 24 hours). The above steps should help resolve any issues you have.

Am I able to share or carryover data?

You can't share data between SIMs in your Group, or carryover data. But because our mobile plans are endless, you won't have to worry about running out! 

Once you’ve used your max speed data allocation for the month, speeds will be reduced to around 1.2Mbps. To manage your data usage, use the Nova Hub to keep tabs on how you're tracking.

Any unused max speed data at the end of the month will expire.




Can I monitor my Business Group mobile data usage?

Yes, you can view your data usage in the Nova Hub and we’ll send you a text alert when you reach 80% and 100% or your max speed data allowance.

If you're looking for more max speed data, give us a call to purchase additional one-off Data Packs for individual SIMs in your group. 

Additional 40GB max speed data packs available for $35/SIM.

What is the difference between SMS and MMS?

SMS and MMS are ways to send messages from one phone to another, but they have some differences.

SMS stands for Short Message Service and is often referred to as a text message. Used for everyday communication, SMS is limited to 160 alphabetic and/or numerical characters (no pictures or videos).

MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service. With MMS, you can send and receive messages containing media files like pictures, videos, audio and text. It's like sending a message with attachments when you share a photo or a video with someone.

Please note that charges apply when sending MMS and SMS messages. See our Standard Mobile Rates for applicable charges per message.
