I am having problems with a Samsung Note 2 that I found. I thought it was my lucky day, but when I put my SIM card into the phone, the phone works and has service and I can receive and make calls. However, for some reason, when I lock the phone, the service just dies out and I have to unlock the phone and wait a few seconds to a few minutes before I get service back and can use the phone again. Please let me know if anyone has experienced these kinds of problems before and/or have any solutions that might work.

P.S. I'm not much of a phone techie but I spent a whole day rooting the phone, adding CWM, and adding the Jedimaster-X ROM on the phone, hoping that this would fix the problem but it did not. Any advice or help is wanted! Thank you in advance!

I haven't tried it with wifi. I just know that the service bar goes from having 4 bars to a crossed out O right after I lock my screen. I can see the crossed out O when I re-light the screen by pressing the power or home buttons. I have tried various SIM cards and still no change. I also tried changing the ROM, no change.
