To answer your question on the advantage of WCF REST on WCF Service. WCF Service is Microsoft's implementation of SOAP. SOAP is a kind of stateful, session-based, message-based web service. Itz good if your service is designed as a set of complex actions.
 
REST is a stateless, sessionless, resource-based web service. It's good if your service is designed to access data and perform simple CRUD operations on it. SOAP and REST are mutually exclusive. A service cannot be both. REST is an architecture style, not a technology.
