Robust Windows Phone client apps handle objects that may be thrown during communication. There is also a derived exception type, FaultException, that clients also often expect. Therefore, to prevent the generic handler from catching this more specific exception types, catch this exception prior to handling .
FaultException objects are thrown when a listener receives a SOAP fault that is not expected or specified in the operation contract.
If you use this API in your app, you must specify the following capabilities in the app manifest. Otherwise, your app might not work correctly or it might exit unexpectedly.
