    Hi everyone,

    How often does the phone update the live wallpaper? I've had the camel wallpaper for quite a while now even though the Bing homepage has a new wallpaper. Thanks for any info.

    My wallpaper doesnt change each day either. I have to go in to the settings and switch it from Bing to something else and then back again for it to update. Not sure what is going on.

    The camels are Sunday's image. Mine updated properly to the subway on Saturday and the camels on Sunday, but today...no dice, still camels. It is supposed to be the current day's image. It has only updated it properly for me once. Usually it is a day behind. I don't know what the issue is with this, but it's almost like the flaky live tiles which for many apps are not totally reliable either. I was hoping WP8 would be more consistent than WP7.

    Mine changed to today's image (Thunderstorm over the ocean) sometime overnight and has been updating daily for me just fine. Not sure why it wouldn't work for some people. Do you have a huge number of background tasks?

    Mine update about midnight to the thunderstorm over the ocean. Camels were yesterday. I was having issues before with it not updating and all it took to fix it was to select a normal photo as the lockscreen and then switch it back to 'Bing'. Did that once and haven't had any problems since.

    It appears to always be a day behind. So if you keep manually updating it, it will never change on it's own. If you manually got the camels yesterday, and let the camels stay today, it should update to todays bing wallpaper, tomorrow.

    Slightly off topic:

    I loved the camel image lol. Made me laugh from the start of my day which is a tough thing to do.

    Mine has been a day behind as well, but it doesn't bother me.

    Looks like mine is updating now. Brandon's tip might have been the remedy. Thanks man.
