This is the last part in a series of four and will step by step explain how to use WCF services to access SQL Azure Database from Windows Phone 7 app. As an example I will develop a Windows Phone app where the user can create an account and later on log in to the account by user name and password. The accounts are saved in SQL Azure and I am using WCF for communication between the WP7 app and SQL Azure Database.

The book Beginning Windows Phone 7 Development has a very detailed chapter about using SQL Azure Database.

Part 1: Signing up to Windows Azure and create your SQL Azure Database

Part 2: Creating a cloud service (WCF service) to connect to the SQL Azure Database

Today I found this great guidance regarding WCF for Mobile Devices. It is a 72 pages PDF document written by Michele Leroux Bustamante and Nickolas Landry in May 2009.

I recommend that you read this if you are designing/developing Windows Mobile applications that are using any kind of communication.

You can download the document from CodePlex: WCF Guidance for Mobile Devices.

Thank you for sharing Michele and Nickolas!
