    Default AT&T Note 3: screen won't unlock with sd card in.

    If I have my sd card inserted my phone screen will not come back on once it locks. Touch works it's just blacked out..Also when it boots up has a pad lock with the word custom under it...

    Mine boots with the padlock cause I am rooted with Kingo. I would try and format your SD card and see if that fixes it or try a different card.

Got the phone a week ago and it just started doing it this morning

    So I just had this problem last week. My phone would show as rooted when it wasn't , I had to format the sd card again and everything went away.

    My note 3 was junk from the day I got it. Then became 10x worse once I put in a sd card. Warrantied it and haven't had a problem in 5 months. Might be the phone.
