A voice credit is counted for every block of 30 seconds. For example, if your message is 47 seconds long (the system will prompt you with message length when you are recording it) and you are sending it to 150 people the credits will be used as follows: 2 credits (one for 30s plus another for the extra 17s) X 150 people = 300 credits.
