    When you try to save a wallpaper, doesn't it give you an option for locked screen or home screen?

    Press and hold down a blank area of the wallpaper. An option will pop up to change the wallpaper. Select an image to preview the wallpaper. But then you have to press select wallpaper to save it.

    yup at this point I can't find a place to save a lock screen wallpaper. When you set a wallpaper it only seems to change it on the home screen, not the lock screen or the app changer screen.

    If you set it from the photo app, it should give you the option for lockscreen home screen or both.

    You might have to use google photos or dl another photo app like quicpic as I understand there is no gallery app in the priv.

    You may want to start a new thread about how you solved this with pics. Just a suggestion to help others.

    If you go to Settings -> Display and Wallpaper -> Wallpaper ->

    At the top of the screen you should see a drop-down menu that says "Home Screen" by default. Tap that, you can change it to "Lock Screen" or "Home and Lock Screen". Basically 3 options, Home, Lock, or Both.

    Are you stating how some android device do it? Priv does not have Lock screen option. It's Setting, Display, Wallpaper, select where the image is from, select image and tap Set Wallpaper. No option to choose which wallpaper you want to change.

    It's a standard Android Lollipop wallpaper UI, so the Priv should have it.

    Settings > Display > Wallpaper should give you the following... A preview of what your homescreen will look like, a wallpaper picker, and a dropdown menu (which I pointed at with a red arrow).

    Lock screen wallpaper-androidsetwallpaper.png

    Tap the dropdown menu, and you should get the following...

    Lock screen wallpaper-androidsetwallpaper2.png

    From there, you should be able to pick any of the 3 options.

    [edit] I searched a bit, and some devices don't have that dropdown box. Whereas as multiple other brands/OEMs do. Why anybody would disable the feature is beyond me.

    That's right and the Priv doesn't have it. Make sure you have a Priv in hand before posting tips and work around, it avoids sending people on goose chase.

    The Priv does NOT have the same options as my Samsung Notes that I have, so putting this kind of tips out there without having a Priv in hand is sending people on a wild goose chase. BB had better put this feature back into this phone asap or I'm returning the phone too. I don't understand how a simple feature like this that was in BB10 was left out! - Geez
    Oh, they also seemed to have left out OTG! - The missing features of this phone is starting to get to me. Come on...even a $100 phone has OTG support nowadays.

    Other androids are missing this feature as well, its not isolated to the Priv.

    I have a Moto X 2014 pure edition with 5.1, it does not have the option to set wallpaper to lockscreen and/or homescreen. However there is a way to do that through root and xposed modules, but that's a completely different topic.

    So glad that I discovered this thread. I started using Fotoable, Inc's Lock Screen and I wasn't quite satisfied. However, I was curious in Next's settings. I didn't see if there was a way to take out the clock or change the swipe/unlock direction.

    Thank you for this. NEXT Lock Screen App works perfectly. I'd nearly given up. The advice given before by non-Priv owners/users was very annoying.
