Do I have to install a new operating system or software; if I plan to use the blackberry 9000 with T-mobile?

No, you just need to unlock the device.

You won't have 3G. Other than that, you should be OK.

Which doesn't matter since my local area doesn't have a 3G Blackberry from T-Mobile anyways.

To answer your question, I am running a 9530 on T-Mobile USA with full function and no issues what so ever.

The issue isn't that T-Mobile doesn't have 3G in your area, the issue is that Tmo uses a different frequency for their 3G. The Bold will not pick up that frequency.
