My Note 3 suffered a few random boot loops out of the box. Then it ended up in sheer boot loop hell soon after it was rooted. At first, I too thought I had done something wrong until seeing all the posts about unchecking "Always Allow Scanning".
After the phone spent a solid 12 hours rebooting over and over, never getting past the T-Mo splash screen, it finally came back up. I unchecked "Always Allow Scanning" in the WiFi settings, and it's been fine ever since.
It would get quite hot during the boot loops, almost too hot to touch, while draining the battery very quickly. I plugged it in and set it on the fan in the top of my computer tower to keep it from frying itself.
