    Hi guys I know this topic has probably been posted before and I have researched all over the net and googled so hopefully somewhere has a concrete answer other than ``ITS BROKEN`` I noticed that my Bing lock screen image barely changes at all and it never in line with my Bing search image. I have tried everything from restarts to soft resets to even turning off wifi at night, to changing to another lock screen wallpaper to changing rgions and countries to even doing a full hard reset last night with no avail. This morning when I woke up it was still the same image from when I reset the phone last night (which was some sort of tower in Wyoming, USA). The only thing that got the image to change was changing to Bing wallpaper via the Weather Flow app. I know this sounds really stupid but for me its a surprise every morning and I love seeing the new images appear (they are lovely) and they are not?? Should I be waiting longer than 25hours or the image to change? Is there another problem in Canada that I am unaware of. Any feedback would be great guys!!

    Well, I get the feeling you've probably tried all the possible solutions so far.

    The ones I found were:

    • Let it go for a few days, it will correct itself
    • Try changing to Facebook, wait for update and then change back to Bing


    Those appear to be the two most common solutions.

    It's possible the GDR2 update will address this issue. I also get the feeling that the refresh is about a day behind compared to the desktop but I'm not certain of that.

    Another option is using "Lock Widgets" app (even trial version of it) and let it update your lockscreen with bing images. (I think Amazing Weather HD also can do this)

    It was not updating with Amazing Weather HD as before I reset my phone I had that program so now I reset and am trying Weather Flow but without any app altering the lockscreen and after 24hours it did not change......really annoying..

    Im using weatherflow and experience the same problem, but not every day...it looks to be more like every other day for the last 2 weeks. Basically, through Weatherflow ive got it configured to use the BING wallpaper and display weather stats...im sure this has to do with the inconsistency. Either way it doesnt bother me so much, i still get beautiful pics from MS so its all good.

    Yes it is not a big deal but it does still bother me seeing as my OCD kicks in LOL. Some time ago it worked fine and even after several reset attempts and all kinds of troublehsooting I can`t get it to work!! WHY OH WHY lol
