    hit the plus sign in the bottom right-hand corner. HTC Widgets>settings>mobile network. Having it off prevents your phone from connecting the 3g data.

    I had this problem for about two weeks. Searched all over for fixes couldn't find any, talked to VZW they didn't have any answers. I could get them when i first got the phone...then nothing, finally got fed up and did a HARD RESET (settings,security,factory data reset). You will lose any apps you have installed and i would take out you sd chip first. You will have to activate the phone again but everything works fine now. Hope this helps.

    Don't do a hard reset before trying one other thing. After you activate your mobile widget you have to turn your 3G network on. From the Home screen: Menu/Settings/Wireless Controls/Mobile Network Settings/Enable always-on mobile. Then the mobile widget should change from grayed-out with the switch in the "off" position to green with the switch "on". Messages download now.

    Verizon tech was clueless on this; suggested a hard reset. Thanks to the other posters.
