A quote is actually a 'cart' object. A customer can have many quotes. One for each website. the quote object is not created when the customer is created. It is created when the customer adds the first product to the cart. Also a quote is not necessarily assigned to a customer. You can have a quote when browsing the website as guest. In that case the quote remains in the db after the session expires.

How quotes work in Magento


I hope this will help you.


As a suggestion,it will be better to merge you quote to current logged in user quote .Then it may be resolved the problem.

$quote = Mage::getModel('sales/quote')->load($quoteId));
// Change  the mode  of your code to active
get the current quote id from session

$session        = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session');
$Current_quote_id       = $session->getQuoteId();
$CurrentQuote = Mage::getModel('sales/quote')->load($Current_quote_id);
// Now merge your quote to current quote

// Also related the cart total after merge
