I have heard people having their cell phone being hacked and someone messaging, texting and making calls, deleting and saving messaging on your number, and you havent turned on your phone. You turn on your phone and someone has even changed the wallpaper on the phone. Is this possible.

It is possible for someone else to "clone" a cell phone, which would allow that person to receive all calls and txt messages that are sent to your phone number. That individual would also be able to send messages and make calls from your number. However, I don't see how cloning (or other hacking method) could change wallpaper on your phone, unless the hacker had physical access to your cell phone. That said, almost anything is possible with electronic devices nowadays.
