    Is the Bing wallpaper supposed to update my lock screen everyday with a new picture? It doesn't work for me if I turn off my phone for the night and wake up the next morning.

    For me it seems to update kind of randomly every two days or so. It's still cool, but it's not going to update every morning right when you check your phone (like Bing desktop does for a PC - which is also awesome).

    The Bing search seems to work but the lock screen does update much later.... Not sure if that's how it is.

    Yea, I went into Bing search, and that updated well before my phone lockscreen did! In fact, I actually had to manually reselect Bing as the wallpaper for it to update. That baby cheetah was getting annoying, lol.

    Mine never updates. So I ended up using weather flow to get the Bing pic of the day and weather. Only negative is low res.
    Samsung Focus -> Samsung Focus Flash -> Nokia Lumia 900 -> Nokia Lumia 920 (GDR2/Amber) -> [SOON ��] Lumia 1020 (GDR2/Amber)
    Asus VivoTab RT 32GB (8.1 RT RTM) + Surface Pro 128GB (8.1 RTM)
    I ❤ Windows ��

    That's unfortunate, cuz it works flawlessly on my Surface... I wanted my laptop, Surface, and WP8X to be in complete sync.

    I was having an issue with both Bing and thru weather flow. I emailed weather flow, and they actually told me it was an issue with the Bing server, and was being worked on.

    You could be the greatest player in the world, but the pigeon will still knock over all the pieces, s--t on the board and strut around triumphantly-Tomtom6 on NcSportbikes.com

    It doesn't work on my 8X either. Nor does HTC Weather. They both randomly update. So many things to get fixed :C.

    My problem with Bing pictures is that I somehow always have some super cute but weird animal on the search button when around my buddies. They think it's my wall paper
