    My phone has shown this icon for as long as I've had it. It still does it after going through at least 4 factory resets. Does anyone else have this problem?

    If you're talking about the padlock when you boot your phone up, then that means that your bootloader is unlocked.

    I briefly got that after flashing a custom recovery but after a reboot it disappeared and haven't seen it since.

    This phone has done it since new. It doesn't do it everytime I restart or turn off and turn on, but it does sometimes. I've factory reset this thing around 3 times. I dunno, maybe an app.

    My old Galaxy tab did the same thing even before I rooted it and unlocked the bootloader. No amounts of factory resets will fix it (as this icon is *supposed* to indicated an unlocked bootloader or custom recovery installed), but it's not something I'd worry about either.
