I need to unlock my Huawei E160 data card, and for 6 euros, these peeps seem reasonable...
Anyone ever used them?
Nope, never used them. With some cards such as Options' globetrotter range it's as simple as finding an unbranded non-operator firmware to flash to unlock.
The Huawei firmwares are out there ( don't have one so never tried unlocking), it's only the ZTE stuff IIRC that's a pain to find the firmware. My 3 ZTE modem is pants, was looking to see if there were any improvements.
€6 is cheap though!
EDIT - the fact they don't list ZTE modems for unlocking makes me think their solution is based on a patched / hacked / reverse engineered firmware. Try flashing the Huwai yourself first?
Edit 2 - 15 credits required for 1 - off unlocking without a dongle = €15, not €6 :-(
