    I was under the impression that selecting Bing as my lockscreen wallpaper would have rotating images. That doesn't seem to be working.


    Is my expectation wrong or is the software not working as intended.

    It switches to the bing image of the day. It only switches once per day.

    This is my experience as well with using it on my desktop. I changed my lockscreen to Bing just now to see if it switches later today or tomorrow.

    I hope it works Bing finds some pretty interesting pictures.

    It switches on my 8X daily, but it seemed to take a couple of days before it started switching.

    I don't think I get the picture of the day though. Today it's a weird shot of the moon.

    Not working on my 920 either -- it's possible that it takes several days to switch but you'd think they would give you the image of the day.

    It works on my 920. I know that doesn't help, but wanted to make sure people knew it's not a phone specific problem. It does only change once a day. Which is ok...but when there is a dumb picture, you have it all the live-long day.

    This. When you set it to Bing, it will be that days wallpaper. It will stay that way the next day, then change the following day. It runs one day behind the Bing wallpaper on the search button.

    I don't think that's right. Mine was broken for some time, but MS has fixed it on the back end. If you set it to Bing, your lock screen will now be that day's Bing search wallpaper

    They may have done a backend update then. It had been changing, just a day behind for me.

    Try switching it away from Bing then back to it. Should sync up after

    Mine does not work at all. I have tried just a photo, Facebook, Bing, but all it appears with the lock screen is a blank white (or black) page. Anyone familiar with this issue?

    It works for me. The Bing wallpaper changes daily on both my 1520 and 1020.

    Soft reset your phone...switch on data connection...go to lockscreen and randomly tap

    My 1020 is new. The 920 was just factory reset. I can turn off Bing and back on to get it to switch. Otherwise I haven't been able to get it to change on it's own.

    Both my phones Bing wallpaper is now updating after waiting a day or two but it's a day behind. That's annoying because you can't click the search button to see image info.
