Wireless carriers are putting more energy into prepaid. It's a normal evolution. As quality phones became cheaper, prepaid brands like Sprint's Boost and Virgin Mobile have been able to offer better phones -- even a selection of smartphones, including the iPhone. Those better products, along with the availability of 4G network speeds, have increased prepaid demand.
"Prepaid is where the growth is. The market is saturated on contracts," said Jayne Wallace,
Sprint's director of corporate communications in charge of prepaid brands.

I haven't try the company you mention above but If you are looking to unlock your cellphone I can talk to you about my experience.

I requested my unlocking code for my Samsung Galaxy S4 several times to T-mobile, though I met all the criteria, I was told it could take as long as 20 days for the unlock code. I then waited for 23 days and when the code came, it didn't work!!!

I paid 15.99 to UnlockCode4U and got a code within 15 MINUTES and it worked first attempt!

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
