I don't seem to be able to use the experimental browser using 3G in Kindle Paperwhite. I am rarely connected to any Wi-Fi network. It seems that #G is ONLY good for Amazon e-books and can buy it using my desktop and transferring it later to my Kindle.

Since I rarely buy any e-books, it was not worth the extra $70 I paid for this feature. So I am thinking of returning the Paperwhite with 3G and then buying a Paperwhite with ony Wi-Fi.

From the Product page of the Paperwhite 3G. You'll want to have paid particular attention to the last sentence:

WebKit-Based Browser

Kindle Paperwhite 3G's experimental web browser is based on WebKit. It's easy to find the information you're looking for right from your Kindle Paperwhite 3G. Kindle Paperwhite 3G enables you to connect to the Kindle Store and access Wikipedia, all over 3G or Wi-Fi. Experimental web browsing on other websites is only available over Wi-Fi.

"...Since I rarely buy any e-books..."

May I ask what you use the Paperwhite for, then? It's primarily an e-reader, not suited to very much else.

I agree. I wouldn't want to use the experimental browser to surf.

Even in an emergency, it's a PITA.
