This isn't gonna happen... at least, not by default.  However, I followed this example and was able to build a parser to do it quite easily:

I hope this helps.

I realize the question is gonna close, but I'd like to post one more piece of info, if I may.  My previous answer was incomplete.  I misread the question.

If you are looking to consume a .NET web service using the same point-and-click mechanism as you would in Visual Studio, then THIS is not going to happen.  XCode does not have this ability nor does the iPhone use the SOAP protocol by default.  Also, SOAP is the norm in .NET with WebServices and there is not native support for SOAP on the iPhone or the iPhone SDK.

That being said, you CAN make a RESTful web service with Visual Studio and consume THAT service rather easily.  So, while your default web services won't be able to be consumed directly by the iPhone, if you rebuild them using REST, you will be able to use them quite nicely.

Here's a link to the toolkit to get you started:

Sorry for such a poor answer earlier.  Even though this question is going to close, I hope you have a chance to look at it again and find this posting.

Good luck!
