Low Cost SMS stle Sat Data

Now that we have SPoT, delorme InReach ( iridium short burst data) , inmarsat C and mini C and a few more. I was wondering what's the cheapest to send simple messages, including position to people at home. I do deliveries and while I use a sat phone, I wish I had something cheaper just to keep the wife informed that I'm ok.
