Have you tried restarting your device?

Restart, like Chad said (pull the SIM and battery, if possible). Try sending yourself a text message.

Hi, I'm have the same issue, says "Currently unable to download. Please try again later." This has been going on for over 2 hrs on same test - what's the problem?

If this text is a picture message you'll need to enable network data to receive it. If you're worried about data charges, connect to wifi before turning on your data.
