Google Offering the credit only for 50, Because to reduce the spammers and abuse of SMS channel, Also it gives one SMS credit after every 24 hours, there is no way to buy credit in Google, So only way to increase this credit by making chat conversation from Gmail to mobile and vice versa,
Way2sms already gives a free service for messaging service, it gives 100 messages / day, also it quit compete for yahoo SMS, which available for long days, But Yahoo SMS needs cost in case of sending message from mobile to yahoo,
