Can't change lock screen wallpaper

Hi ,
I brought Xperia Z last week ( India) . I changed Theme to Emerald .
I changed home screen wallpaper to my desired picture, home screen got changed.

But when I tried to change lock sceen wallpaper,settings -> Display -> Lock screen ->wallpaper -> Album selected random picture . I got pop out lock screen changed. But its not changed actually !!! The home screen wallpaper itself in dull pattern is showing for lock sceren wallpaper.

What could be the reason for this?? Have anybody tried this? Its only in my mobile or this is an issue/limit/bug??

Re: Can't change lock screen wallpaper

Which type of screen lock are you using? Swipe or pattern/PIN/password?

Hi,

I can change the Lock Screen Wallpaper, irrespective of the theme. The same can be changed from Settings>Display>Lock Screen

Do not forget to give kudos and to select the correct answer as solution

Always Xperia

When i use PATTERN as my screen lock, the lock screen wallpaper doesn;t change!

Why? i tried to change the lock screen wallpaper in the Settings>Display>Lock Screen, nth change.

The lock screen wallpaper is the same as my wallpaper.

Re: Can't change lock screen wallpaper

The lock screen wallpaper is only changed when using swipe as lock method. When using pattern/PIN/face you will get the wallpaper as lock screen.

Re: Can't change lock screen wallpaper

The phone is designed like that, unfortunately nothing you can change.
