Thanks for following up. It will be a bit of a he said/she said situation, but the fact that you were paying the bill etc will support that this phone was loaned for his use, not given. If he poses a threat to your person or property, then you can file a petition for a restraining order which will prevent him from coming near you or your property. If he were then to violate that, he would be in contempt of court and subject to both civil and/or criminal sanctions imposed by the court. I would actually demand he deliver the phone to an independent party or have an independent courier to go pick it up to avoid any physical meeting between the two of you.
