Greetings! Haven't been on here for a while but thought this topic was worth posting about.
So my friend recently got a phone call from her friend who she is not exactly on good terms with at the moment and she has saved his contact under the swear word 'son of a b****'. But here's the weird part, he phoned her and the first thing he said was 'yeah it's son of a b****'-implying that he knows that she's saved his name as that. Bearing in mind she hasn't seen him in 6years and has no mutual friends for him to find out from someone else. So she thinks that he may have hacked her phone? But would this be possible since he hasn't actually physically got any contact with her phone (they don't live in the same country). Just wanted to know some thoughts or some other possible explanations as to how the heck he would know that? Find it so weird..

Yes it's possible, you don't need physical access to hack a device. Doesn't mean it's likely though. More likely it was a coincidence or the information was shared somehow.
Not to rule out hacking of course and if you think you've been hacked you need to do something about it. But it doesn't seem all that likely that this guy would hack her phone and call her to leak that he knows what she calls him. Especially after 6 years.
Really there's no useful information here to actually know what happened.
