- this translates to 35 in a week ( from Sunday to sunday)
- Now, the rule does not say daily limit, it simply says 24 hours. For example, if you use your call me back SMS within 2 hours e.g. between 8am-9am, you will have to wait till the next day, starting from 8am. So it does not mean that it will last you till evening.
