Project Menu. My Problem is I am getting exception when i am running the
calling the wcf services on the device.

This is working Correctly. when i run application on android emulator. I am getting correct result.

It's Debug build. I have net work permission also. I have "" in ManiFest.xml file. Even i
tried changing the build from "Debug" to "Release" mode and executed the
application. It's giving the same Error on the device , but it's giving result
in emulator. No Exception is thrown on emulator.

I am searching for solution to fix this, but not getting correct answer. So
Please let me know what i need to do, to get it fixed. Please help me out.
