Its nothing of that sort. Sometimes it just happens randomly. I've seen it happening with myself as well, but can't say any valid answer to what the phone is doing.

Sometimes its the network which is experiencing some issues.

Re: lock icon keeps appearing

Well jimmy. My present network doesn't show that, but lemme try to explain. Its just somehow refers to an unsecure connection voice and data connection.
Like in secure connections, there's a padlock. Here, the padlock isn't locked, instead its locking lever is turned to the other side indicating an unsecured connection. That's all it is.

Keypad lock is usually a key symbol instead of a padlock.
