    My Axia phone doesn't let me have a different wallpaper for my home and lock screen. I've watched videos but it doesn't give me those options of home, lock or both

    Please help

    Welcome to Android Central! Not all phones allow you to pick a different lockscreen wallpaper. If you don't have that option, then it's not possible, at least not with the stock launcher. You could try using a 3rd party launcher like Nova, but I'm not sure if that will work either.

    Sorry, but that link got modified by the forum software, and only links to a generic help page at AT&T. Is the link you're trying to share a guide to set separate wallpapers for lockscreen and homescreen on your specific phone?

    Can you tell us the exact steps you're taking to set a wallpaper? In general, it's like this:

    1. Long-press an empty part of the homescreen until you see options appear.
    2. Tap Wallpaper.
    3. Select the option you want -- it should give you options for preinstalled wallpapers, your Gallery, Live Wallpapers, and possibly other options.
    4. If your phone supports being able to select different wallpapers for lockscreen and homescreen, then when you select your wallpaper, it should ask your preference (i.e., lockscreen, homescreen, or both).

    I'm still not sure which site you were trying to link. Try posting the link again, but this time add a space after each dot.

    I tried to break that messy link and I think you are referring to QS5509A, AT&T prepaid Axia, is that right?

    It didn't work, those links are being broken by the site software. Can you post a screenshot of the support page you are trying to link? Or, as B. Diddy said, copy the link and before posting add spaces after the dots

    I'm guessing it's this page? http://www.att.com/devicehowto/tutor...09A&gsi=59yhu3. Hopefully that link works after a couple of tricks I know (but it might still not show up if you're using one of the Android Central apps to access the forums).

    Yes that is it

    Ok, so when you select a wallpaper, it just applies it to both lockscreen and homescreen, without giving you a choice? Does this happen with live wallpapers as well?

    Also, did the phone get an Android version upgrade after you got the phone? It seems unlikely, given that it's a budget prepaid phone, but if there was a version upgrade, it's possible they removed the option then.

    One more thing I can think of -- see if this happens in Safe Mode: http://www.att.com/devicehowto/tutor...09A&gsi=5fvnpk
