    I have my lock screen set to Bing, but it never changes. Do I need to do something else?

    It's been inconsistent for me, too. Possibly need to actually use the Bing search more often for it to download the next image?

    Mine has never automatically changed. I always have to set it to something else and back to Bing for it to change. Odd that it works for some.

    The bing wallpaper is always a day behind, except for the first time you set it, or if you switch off of it, and back on.

    If you keep going in and setting it off and on, it will never update on it's own. If your lockscreen currently displays today's Bing.com picture, yours will not update for two days.

    The first 5 days of ownership - no. Then I did a factor reset and now it changes daily and matches whatever is on bing.com.

    Mine has been changing every day. Not really sure what time because I would wake up and it'd be different. I really liked the one today so I made it permanent.

    This might sound stupid..but I noticed that the wallpaper changes 24 hours after you set bing as the lockscreen background. I set mine just past midnight and now every morning it shows a new wallpaper.

    I think that is it because mine changed a little while ago which I think is 24 hours after the last time I manually set it.

    That wallpaper is actually zebras not camels :-) . You can go to the bing home page and browse through some of the past wallpaper and save the background. Here it is if you are interested.

    Both my wife's and my phone have worked great with the updated bing image on the lock screen. They change daily.

    Mine changes but I don't know when exactly it happens. For example, I still have yesterdays Bing picture on my lock screen.

    I've had it on mine. Seems to be you set it, it will stay the same for approximately 2 days, then start changing daily, running a day behind the actual Bing site.
