If I call any webmethod from webservice by get method then it is possible to change the data on server?
Or I have to call webmethod only via Post method.

Can anyone give me a proper example which is available on internet.

A GET command is retried a number of times. So in case you are updating / inserting data it could create a problem.
POST is not retried and hence if you send a request once, it will only be executed once on the server.

So while you could use GET to update records, its not a good idea.
