fractions of a penny a piece.  I did notice that the quota is per message 
for the first 1000, but when you exceed the plan limit, its per 
character... seemingly implying that the free plan messages have 
"unlimited" size?  If so, perhaps a message "compression" feature might 
help.  Where the server saves up and packs a load of messages together for 
delivery every so often, and only directly sends ultra high priority
