Receiving/Sending MMS turns on 3G and I can't turn it off

For some inexplicable reason, everytime I try to send or receive a photo via MMS my Aria turns on the 3G wireless.  This wouldn't be much of a problem but my phone will not allow me to turn off 3G without restarting the phone. 

 

If I tell the phone to turn off the 3G, it appears to respond appropriately, but the 3G up-and-down arrows indicate that my phone is still transferring data over the 3G network.

 

Has anyone heard of this problem or know of any solutions?

 

Thanks.

MMS messages ONLY send via the cellular network.  They will not send via WiFi.

Are you simply trying to send via the EDGE network instead?
