If your phone is hacked would your IP address change to the hackers IP address?

    Theoretically possible - practically extremely useless (and stupid to boot).

    No, the hacker would be using your device, on the same network you are always on. In other words, they use your network "as-is"

    No. The IP address has no value other identifying the device on a network. If a hacker joins a network, all devices of that network can be seen. That's why it's easy to walk into a place with public wifi where anybody can join the network. Then it just a matter of how secure the device is on that network.

    No, Your external IP address is determined by your ISP
