Be aware that it kinds of drain your iPhone's battery though. Because if you go out with your iPad and iPhone, it creates an instant hotspot on your iPhone to keep the Continuity going.
The use of the SMS may increase the costs for sender and/or recipient. I guess this is a big part of why Whatsapp has the customer base it has. Oh wait, it doesn't work on iPads. Back to Skype.
