1. A method of wireless communication, comprising:
communicating using a first set of bundled resources for an uplink data channel;
determining that a second set of bundled resources for a downlink control channel comprises an uplink grant with a same hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process identifier as the uplink data channel, an uplink grant with a different hybrid automatic repeat HARQ process identifier than the uplink data channel, or a downlink grant;
identifying a time difference between the first set of bundled resources and the second set of bundled resources; and
communicating using the second set of bundled resources based at least in part on the determining and the identifying.
