SMS credit is an allocation of SMS (text messages) that you're able to send to a mobile phone.

1. Initially, you're granted a credit of 50 messages.
2. Enery time you send a message, your credit decreases by one.
3.Every time you receive an SMS message in Chat( for example when a phone user
replies to one of your mmessage) your credit increases by one, up to a maximum of 50
4.If your SMS credit goes down to zero at any point, it will increase back up to 50, 24 hours later.
So, you won't ever be locked out of the system

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 one.
