I think my phone is hacked because my cousin keeps getting attachments sent to her from my number but I never sent them. I need help. I already changed my number and Apple ID. I was notified before by email that someone from Norway had accessed my phone before I changed my number and Apple ID. I have an IPhone 6s Plus. Please help!

Hi,
From your description, your apple id was compromised. You can follow this to change your apple id https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201355. Also make sure you turn on "2 level authentication" for your apple id.

Try to reset the network settings and restart the phone and see if the attachment issue was from the phone or somewhere else.

Or just change the Apple ID password.
