What About Credit?

SMS credit is an allocation of SMS (text messages) that user will be able to send to any mobile phone. Initially, every user will get a credit of fifty messages for free. But Every time user send a message, credit decreases by one.

How To Keep It Free?

Here are the tips

# If you got reply to any SMS then you will get 5 credit points. Maximum you could have 50 credit points. So when you receive an SMS in your Google SMS or actually in Google Voice number you will get 5 credit for free.

# Or no worry if your points gone to zero, it will refill automatically again with 50 credit points in 24Hr.

Thoughts: It seems Google kept that 50 credit system to avoid miss use and spamming.

“Buying” additional messages
Keep in mind that if you’d like a higher message credit, you can always send an SMS to your own phone, and then reply to that message multiple times. Every time you send a reply message, your SMS credit is increased by five. Effectively, you’re buying more messages by paying your phone company for these outgoing messages.
