how much does an international SMS cost? just wondering if it's cheaper than biteSMS...

I'm currently using skype for sms and it utterly sucks, interface-wise. The send button is right next to the space bar and backspace, so I'm constantly sending multiple messages instead of just one. The only thing that's keeping me from biteSMS is the fact that it's so much cheaper. Skype is 1.19cents per sms, whereas biteSMS is 10cents per sms, both in Aussies dollars. I'm tossing up whether it's worth switching for centralised messaging and no stupid interface, or sticking with the cheaper option.
