This is old news, but a reminder may help someone out there. I have a 200GB bundle that is coming to an end. Last month I purchased a 1 month data bundle in error instead of a replacement. Contacted Cell C help line immediatly, got called back and told that as I had already used some of the "new" bundle they couldn't reverse the purchase. Used it in an updating orgy instead.

Yesterday, I bought a replacement 200GB bundle, a few MB of the old one being left over, now, surprise, it's using the OLD one first! Looks like accounting practices vary as it may suit the service provider.

It probably uses the bundle that will expire first.
