Messaging: Country Pricing Resource

The Messaging Country Pricing resource provides a simple API to pull real-time, account-specific pricing for Twilio's SMS product.

Prices can be retrieved at a country level directly via the Pricing Messaging Countries resource or for a specific phone number by leveraging the Lookup API and Pricing Messaging Countries resource.
