    This option is under the Network options via the settings in out 2.1 HTC Heroes. What does this option mean, and what kind of impact does it have on our device's performance and battery performance.

    Thanks!

    From my understanding is that checking this box will allow applications that use data, to continuously be able refresh/update as they are programed to by the user. This should not have a huge impact on battery life unless you set programs to update frequently. I dont see any device performance issues with this option on or off.

    What is "Mobile network" under Wireless & Networks. What happens if I uncheck it? Does that mean I can't connect to the internet?

    Also, what exactly is "Call guard" under Mobile network settings. Thanks.

    That allows the phone to increase power when roaming in the 800mhz band. Such as roaming with Verizon.

    check or uncheck mobile network to enable or disable mobile interwebs(seemingly).
    call guard just displays a confirmation message to make or recieve calls whilst roaming.
