    My HTC Hero superb phone just had now for a couple of weeks. i notice my bill is significantly rising without sometimes using my phone. is this because the phone is constantly updating downloading data? and being charged?

    This is one of the "problems" or feature you get with android, that it wants to sync a lot of things with the cloud (the internet), because this is just the way google thinks people should handle their data.
