    I saw that you were using the wcf rest service, then how did you get this:

    DServicesClient proxy = new DServicesClient();

    We can not use the add service references to gerente the proxy. One way to implement it is to use the ChannelFactory to call the wcf service, here is the example:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb412178.aspx .

    And I saw that you have used the following:

    [WebInvoke(Method="GET",ResponseFormat=WebMessageFormat.Json ,
             string JSONData(string id);

    Then you can browser it in the IE with following uri, if the id="876":
