I've recently updated my HTC Trophy 7 to Windows Phone 7.8. Now I am able to set the bing image of the day as my lockscreen wallpaper. However, it does not change regularly. Actually it has never changed until today, since I set it for the first time. My phone has WLAN access when I am at home during night and is connected through 3G when I am away. So it constatly has an internet connection.

Is this usual behaviour? How can I tell my phone to update the image daily?

  • Can you add provide us with more information of things you have tried? Such as restart phone, select different lock screen provider and then back. – caschw May 17 '13 at 14:00
  • Yes, I've restarted the phone and also switched the lock screen provider. After switching the provider back to bing, the new wallpaper get's shown. I will see, if it changed something, tomorrow. However I do not want to switch providers each and every day... – Aschratt May 17 '13 at 14:37

    Hopefully switching it was enough to get the phone out of the stuck state that it was in. Good Luck! – caschw May 17 '13 at 18:51
  • Actually it really seemed to help. For a few days, the background image now got updated. However this appears pretty weird. I will keep an eye on this, for first... – Aschratt May 21 '13 at 10:12

It may be possible that the background task that updates the lock screen has been turned off. There is an article at WPCentral that details how to make sure background tasks are active for the apps you want.

  • There's no such background task in the list for me. – Aschratt May 17 '13 at 10:31
