How can I disable someone from hacking into my phone

Someone has hacked into my phone and can track all my usage, track where I am, and also did the same to my vehicle. How can one find out a cell phone number without me giving it to them?

Phone companies do track the phone, usage and where you are.

The only way to stop that is to turn off the phone when you don't want to be tracked.

As to the vehicle you may have to get a lawyer involved since installing a tracking device other than the vehicle maker would be a legal matter and you need to pursue charges against them. Get a lawyer.
