I think these are different devices, I am stuck at how to get it activated. I needed something to use for two days and bought this and don't know how to use it. Dongle is installed but what next ?

Once the dongle is connected, it automatically installs Windows drivers and then runs the setup for webConnect Manager. After installation and rebooting, you can then connect to the T-Mobile broadband network using webConnect Manager.
At this point, you can use your web browser to visit www.t-mobile.com to activate the device online. Or you can call T-Mo's prepaid dept. to activate by phone. I was having a technical issue so I went with the phone agent (who wasn't able to handle the tech issue).
Upon activation, you'll have a "phone number" that you'll use to create a management account at My-TMobile.com . After you've selected and paid for a prepaid plan, you'll be able to use the service until the plan expires or you've reached the hard cap.
For those who need a monthly pass, the best thing to do is to first add $10 to the account (by credit card), and then use the free refill card to top off the account balance to $25. $25/month gets you the 1.5 GB plan which is fine for general non-video streaming use. (They do offer some higher tiers as well.)

How difficult is it to get an unlock code for this device (provided that you are already a T-Mobile prepaid user)?

If you have a phone with the $30/5G data plan and you put it in this device for occasional use, will T-Mobile care? 5G should be 5G, but I've heard some carriers (at&t) get cranky if the IMEI doesn't match the phone type used for the account. Does anyone have experience with T-Mobile's stance on this?

from what i have read here, your phone sim will not work on this. T-Mobile has some way of checking and blocks it.

Why would you bump an expired deal? This was almost 90 days old?!?!?!?
Wouldn't it have been better to call T-Mobile and ask your question, or JFGI?
