Can someone hack your cell phone & steal your data?

My aunt thinks that my sister's boyfriend has downloaded an app on his phone to hack into her cell phone & has used her data usage.
The first thing that brought it to her attention was, whenever he would use his phone to call someone, it would ring her phone too, & she would answer, and she could hear him & the other person talking, but they could not hear her. Then she gets a notification that most of her data been used up.
She is highly suspicious of him. He & my sister has a bad history of stealing. Could it be that my aunt could be right? And what can i do to prevent him from doing this to me? If i block his number from calling or texting me, will it also block him from hacking into my phone?

  • If in doubt check with your cell phone provider. They can tell you what the data was used for and if this is even possible. Google and see what it brings up.
