I I need to build a client app on Windows Phone 8.1 to communicate with a remote SQL database.
Building a local database on the device is supported but I can't find information on how to connect the app to a remote database. I need to implement the standard CRUD operations on a database on a remote SQL Server from the mobile device.

Thanks for this. I had hoped there was a better option but this answer and wider research seems to confirm that this is the only solution. I know that Microsoft's phone has not had the same success as others even though it has a clean architecture with good security support and an intuitive UI.. It seems a shame that development for fairly obvious usage requirements is so clunky. Anyway, that of course is another issue.

I appreciate your including  the links.

Thanks again. DW
