After I already had problems with the lockscreen on my old HTC 7 Trophy with the 7.8 update, I finally switched over to a Lumia 920. Now I am facing a different problem with the bing-image-of-the-day-lockscreen: It does update, but it does this a few minutes before midnight... So I allways see the image of yesterday on my lockscreen, while I see the actual present image, when I hit the search-softkey.

I've already tried to switch off the lockscreen for a few days and switched it on in the morning, but this did not affect the behavior at all. I've also checked the list of background tasks, but I could not see any task for 'lockscreen', 'bing', and so on.

Is there any way to set the time my phone updates the lockscreen image?


It is not possible to change when the Bing wallpaper runs a wallpaper update on your phone but you can use other apps such as Locksider, PhotoStream and My 500px to achieve what you are looking for.

Among the above apps, PhotoStream is free and the other two are not (you can try them for free).

  • All three apps apparently not support bing :/ – Aschratt Jul 18 '13 at 6:48
  • They are your only options at this time – karancan Jul 18 '13 at 14:05

Just for those who are curious: I finally got this work with WeatherFlow.

There's another trick. I think it updates wallpaper exactly at the time you set your phone to use bing wallpaper. So you can try setting some custom wallpaper for a while and then, let's say at 7 am, change the setting to use Bing wallpaper. And since then, if I'm right, you'll get new picture every day at 7 am
