I can't see why not, but it would be prudent to let the first one go through fully before doing the second one.

No. They are vouchers for $20 recharges. If you use the 2nd one, it will replace the first one, not add to it.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Hi @Zimex15,


As Jupiter wrote, no you can't use two $20 recharge's to recharge $40.


A $20 recharge is a Top-Up recharge which is mainly used for a Data Top-Up, calling International numbers or entering Premium sms competitions. 

The $20 would show under "Credit" in your Pre-Paid service. If the $20 recharge was put on for extra Data then you would need to convert it to Data.....otherwise the $20 would be used at Pay As You Go rates for International calls and possibly Premium sms competitions. 


If you recharged 2x $20 it would show as $40 under "Credit" on your service...you won't get free talk and text with these recharge's.
