Significantly lowered prices for SMS

Ian Webster @typpo

Lowered prices for text messages to U.S. and Canada. This change puts pricing on par with Twilio.

Our pricing should be pretty appealing. Textbelt offers flat rates (no variation by provider/country) and small bundles (with purchases as small as $3).

I added an About page that explains some differentiators, because feedback that I got from IH is usually asking how Textbelt is different.

This is an experiment. Profit has been solid even though we charge higher prices. I'd need a lot of volume to make up for lower prices. I'm interested in seeing if the pricing attracts a different type of customer and how significantly it improves my conversion rate.
