    What is Cell Network Search and what negative impact will it have on my iPhone if I disable it?

    Does it help with Significant Change Location or Georeferencing?

    As far as what it does, it's basically sending information to Apple to help crowdsource cell network tower location information: http://discussions.apple.com/thread/3436532

    Nothing to do with the carrier such as searching for cell service?

    No, that's just part of built-in cell functionality, not really related to the system location services settings.
