MMS - currently unable to download...try again later

I've been having issues with downloading MMS.  It says currently unable to download...try again later.  However, later it never works.  I have wifi off and I've disabled juice defender, restarted my phone, restarted handcent, cleared data from handcent, cleared data from stock messaging and no dice.  I know other people have had issues with this and they've said it might have something to do with the new upgrade for market.  I'm unsure about how it relates and affects MMS but who knows.

Any suggestions?

that's just Sprint's ridiculously slow data speeds.

Actually, after some more digging the 3g somehow got turned off even though I never turned it off. 

Fix:  Going into settings

       Wireless and Network

       Mobile Networks

       Make sure 3G data is checked.

Not sure how it got unchecked but my friend who has the thunderbolt via verizon said that her 3g was turned off yesterday as well and she wasn't sure how it got turned off.  So obviously its not a sprint issue.

After the fix, my MMS's downloaded after the first attempt and was fast as well.
