Is there a way to monitor a cell phones usage without the user knowing that it is being done?

If you share the same wireless account and the account is in your name you may be able to track the phone usage. If you have web access to your account you may be able to access that information. If you don't share an account you should not have access.

There's no way to monitor someone else's phone without their knowledge. The only people allowed to do that are the police and the security people like FBI. They do this if they suspect the person is involved in crime or anything to jeopardise security.

FYI, went to Verizon today with her and watched you tubes many videos. There are tones of apps out there that make it possible and a person would never know.

Yes, but it is prohibited unless you are a parent tracking your own children or an employer tracking employees on company phones.

Not prohibited, just can't be used in court as proof of anything unless it was ordered by law enforcement.

Well, actually it is prohibited by state and federal privacy laws. (I'm sure it's dang hard to catch people doing it, though.) However, if someone were to be proven to be doing it to a phone he doesn't own, the privacy laws come down pretty hard and jail time is possible. It's already happened in stalker cases. If her ex can be proven to be doing it (in other words, call the cops), he's stalking and could be in real trouble.
The spy programs are legal to own and use, true, and they advertise how you can "track and listen in on cheating spouses" etc. However, if you carefully read their own legal disclaimers farther in their own literature -- they specifically say it's "only to be used on phones you personally own or to track your own children". They very carefully also say they are not responsible for any illegal activities their program is used for.
So, read the fine print ALWAYS, because unless it's for tracking a phone you own, it IS illegal.
