Does the $5 / 100 outgoing text messages end after 1 day or is up to 100 messages over how ever many days it takes to get to that?  then if you go to 101, another $5 applies?

For the billing cycle that you get it in.

So if you send 1 text on say the 4th and your billing cycle ends on the 5th you have now paid $5 to send 1 text. 100 texts is per billing cycle which is so wrong. It should be 100 texts per 30 days for $5. Depending on your billing cycle it could be fine or totally screw you.

Although potentially getting charged an extra $5 is inconvenient, you and I clearly have a very different definition of getting "totally screwed".
