  • Hi Hellotesttest,

    We can use the HttpClient class to help us cosume the WCF Rest Service from the Windows Phone 8.1 Runtime app.

    For example you have this ServiceContract in your WCF Rest Service:

        public interface IService1
            [WebGet(UriTemplate = "Test")]
            string Test();

    Then in Windows Phone you can use this code to consume the WCF Rest Service:

     private async void Test()
           HttpClient MyHttpClient = new HttpClient();
           HttpRequestMessage MyRequest = new HttpRequestMessage(HttpMethod.Get, http://******/Service1.svc/Test);
           HttpResponseMessage MyResponse = await MyHttpClient.SendAsync(MyRequest);
           string MyData = await MyResponse.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
           MessageDialo MyDialog = new MessageDialog(MyData);
           await MyDialog.ShowAsync();

    Best Regards,
