Example: When you purchase 1GB of Data on the 1st of January, it would expire on the last day of the month, however if you have 100MB left from your subscription and the auto renewal kicks in then your balance for the newly purchased data plan would be 1GB + 100MB.

However the down side to this and why most subscribers do not like this feature and usually want it turned off is due to the fact that they want to control how credit/ airtime is taken from their phone and also sometimes one may not necessarily want to browse or access the internet the following month.
