    Hi,

    I have a Verizon Nokia 822 WP8 phone. My lock-screen used to update with the current Bing home page photo but now it is stuck on a starry night background. I have the phone set with the following settings. Can someone share as to what I am doing wrong?

    settings > lockscreen
    background: Bing
    notifications
    Choose as app to show detailed status: messaging
    Choose apps to show quick status

    Also, what do detailed status and quick status do?

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    yeto

    Change the background to photo from Bing. Lock your screen you'll see the photo changed. Then again go to settings change background to Bing and lock it you'll se it change to latest Bing photo. If not then just restart your phone. :)
    And about quick status and detailed. Say you have wpc in quick status. And you have a few unread articles..the amount of unread articles will show up on lock screen as a quick status. In detailed status if you have say calendar then it'll show you the event for the day or upcoming events in detail. :)

    If it makes you feel any better, it works great with the preview.

    Bing lockscreen in WP8.1 works better than WP8. Why? Because in WP8 the bing photo takes 2 day to start updating
