    • In the example shared above, there are 1500 allowed or credited messages from all plans, from which 335 have been sent, and 1165 are remaining.
  4. Whereas, Prepaid Message Credits - SMS shares the same details for messages that were not received or credited through regular Purchase Plans (for example, One Time payments or allotment by Licensees to Merchants as a goodwill gesture).
