Koodo has no way of knowing this. If anything, I recommend doing a factory reset. This will set your phone back to the day that you bought it(IE: Fresh activation) and it'll clear out any suspicious apps, as long as they aren't backed up.

Of course, the likelyhood of your phone being traces is slim. You would have to download an app that wasn't through the playstore/iTunes.

Read through this.

My first clue would be higher data usage. But Myke's suggestions of a factory reset is the best way to solve the issue

As long as you haven't left your phone around without a password lock no can do much. hey would have to install the software on your phone and remotely it would be almost impossible.
