You would have to load opera mini onto your BB to browse the web on a generic plan on a BB.
Use of the BB browser, requires a BB data plan, not generic.

AFAIK, you cannot browse the web using the 3G connection on another phone.

You need a data plan on the BB or you need to use WiFi and the hotspot browser. However, some carriers will not allow WiFi use unless you also have the BB data plan.
