    If you have proof, I'd still report it, after all hacking (accessing someone's device without their permission) is a crime.
    That aside, backup everything you want to keep (automatic backup to your Google account should take care of this, but backup to your PC or an SD card is good too.), then factory reset and get a new SIM (which won't have the provisioning you installed recently. If you're really worried, ask for anew number.
