I'm trying to create a code in Windows Phone 8 for sending a basic GET request to a PHP file in the format http://localhost/get_request.php?username=sops
How do I do this?

You can use something like below code snippet to achieve it.
WebClient webClient = new WebClient();
// Register the callback
webClient.DownloadStringCompleted += new DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler(webClient_DownloadStringCompleted);
webClient.DownloadStringAsync(new System.Uri(YOUR_URL));
void webClient_DownloadStringCompleted(object sender, DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs e)
    if (e.Error == null)

Here YOUR_URL will be "http://localhost/get_request.php?username=sops".

Is the "GetResponseAsync" method present in Windows Phone 8 API? I tried looking it for at but couldn't find any. Did you import any additional libraries? Sorry, if my question sounds like a total noob but I'm used to programming with Java and not with .Net

Updated the sample. Instead of HttpWebRequest it now uses WebClient which is much easy to work with.
