    I don't really have a solution, but my Bing background takes about 2-3days to change....maybe it's an internet thing? U got WiFi, or data plan always on?

    Had the same problem. It seems internet access should be available during the time period which it updates, more like the Store app. One suggestion is to use some third party app to update the bing wallpaper. You'll find many in the Store. I use WeatherFlow. It has worked reliably till now and adds the weather info as an overlay too.

    You can force the lock screen image to change by going into settings and selecting a different lock screen, Photos for example, and then selecting Bing again.

    Or, try Papercut, available in the Store.

    first - hold down power and volume down for about 15 sec. this will soft reset your phone (like a battery pull).
    second - try to keep your phone powered down overnight, for one or two nights
    third - ??
    fourth - profit

    If you are on WiFi then you'll need to keep it charging overnight else the image won't change. Still I believe third party apps will be the best option.

    Just give it a few days and it will change on its own. You'll have the same image for the first two days, but it will change eventually. You could turn wifi overnight just to be extra certain.

    I did have this problem for a while, and then I downloaded an app called Lock Manager - one of the options is to set the lockscreen as the daily Bing Image, and it has updated EVERY DAY, just past midnight (UK).

    Hey man thank you very very much because just like clock work after midnight as soon as my search image updated, so did my lockscreen image!!! Thanks again for sharing this as it works and I am in Canada. I use to have Weather Flow but because I already have a live tile on my homescreen I did not want to display the weather on the lockscreen and preferred just to see an image and with this app I no longer need too :) since as of right now it worked perfectly!!!! Thanks again!

    How about 3rd party apps? For example, I tried using Tumblr as my source of lock screen wallpaper. However, it shows a default wallpaper found on the phone instead. Same for other apps like Twitter, Facebook etc. Bing is working for me though. Really appreciate if there is a fix or something that allows me to use Tumblr for my wallpaper.

    Sorry to bring to this up again but I really like the bing wallpapers and I hate that the standard bing wallpaper feature rarely updates properly.
    I've been using papercut as an alternative which is almost perfect but the bing wallpaper used by this app appears to be significantly lower resolution than if you were using the standard bing wallpaper feature on the phone!? It really annoys me. I tried emailing the developer of the app to ask why this happens but haven't got a response. I tested out lock manager as well and it also has lower resolution. A good way to see the difference is if you enable papercut and then take a screenshot of your lock screen and then take a screenshot of the search screen (Has the official bing daily image as well). When comparing them you can really see the difference in quality.

    Also the other suggestions in this thread to selecting a photo and then re-selecting bing images only works sometimes. So frustrating :(

    There's quite a few apps these days that allow the display of the Bing wallpaper with other information. One I tried recently was Amazing Weather, which gives me the daily Bing wallpaper along with the weather summary.

    As far as I remember, the stock Bing wallpaper option depends on there being network connectivity at a certain point overnight. If there's no connectivity, it'll try again 24 hours later. Maybe setting Wifi options so that it persists under the lock screen may help.

    Whenever I switch on WiFi on 820 the bing lockscreen updates automatically..!!
