I've searched high and wide for a solution to this, I've even emailed Samsung but their response was ridiculous and their contact page is awful so my next solution is forums.

My problem is, I've only had my phone a couple of months and as soon as I got it I customised everything from my lock screen wallpaper to my phone wallpaper. I've just gone to change my lock screen wallpaper and it won't change at all, it only allows me to use the Samsung default wallpapers. I've tried factory resetting it, using different pictures, different ways of changing it, nothing seems to allow it to change unless it's a horrendous picture of a flower supplied by Samsung.

Is there any more options I can try without completely throwing my phone against the wall? Thanks in advance.

Are you using a different launcher? Ie nova / apex etc?
If you are then set touch wiz as default, change wallpaper then go back to your launcher.

I had a similar issue with my S4 one day, but after selecting one of the default pictures as the lock screen wallpaper, I changed the wallpaper again, selecting one of my pictures and it was fine.
If this doesn't help, only thing I can suggest is a factory reset.

Samsung suggested it was a glitch and told me to factory reset it did nothing unfortunately. I've tried selecting multiple different default wallpapers and my own wallpapers, the only things that change is if I select a default wallpaper that came with the phone.

None, I use whatever the phone came with.

Thanks for the options though everyone
