My phone was hacked, very possibly from someone I know and I got some questions...
Is it possible to find out details of data that has been either sent to my phone or removed from it?
What is the proper way to reset the phone so that this doesn't happen again?
In my case. I never downloaded apps that weren't in the Play Store, was never on sites that I would assume weren't legit and never to my knowledge clicked on links that I wasn't sure of.

Aside from being highly unlikely, it would require direct access to the device as you claim you didn't click on any links you shouldn't.
How about sharing why you think your ohone was hacked?
It it rooted?

I assume the phone hasn't been rooted. Can I tell if someone has rooted it?
Why i think phone was hacked - My data would spike at weird times...Apps would open on their own. The phone would freeze at random times... my calendar info was changed... there was two google searches leading to specific pages that I didn't make and all this would happen only when cell data was turned on. The phone acts normally when cell data is turned off.
but I'm assuming this person had access to my phone physically. This phone has been attached physically to my home computer, can a keylogger be loaded from an android phone to a windows computer?

I strongly suspect your google account is compromised.
Add google 2 step and remove any unknown devices. https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185839?hl=en

Google 2 step? Good.

How does hacking your PHONE lead to a high ATT bill? That sounds more like you have a hacked account or fraud orders.
