Windows Phone 8 Webrequest with https and custom header using Get

Open original thread
Hey everyone I'm in the process of writing a Windows phone 8 that is a copy of a clients iOS application. I need to be able to send a get request with custom header entries. Using Windows 8 this is easy, however using Windows PHONE 8 I have been having trouble.

Here is what i have:

WebRequest myClient = WebRequest.Create(_devApiUrl + "session/" + _entityKey);

            myClient.Headers["Host"] = _host;
            myClient.ContentType = "text/json";
            myClient.Method = "GET";

            myClient.BeginGetResponse(ReadWebRequestCallback, myClient);

and then just trying to get a response I have this:

private void ReadWebRequestCallback(IAsyncResult callbackResult)
            HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)callbackResult.AsyncState;

            if (myRequest != null)
                    HttpWebResponse myResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myRequest.EndGetResponse(callbackResult);
                catch (WebException e)

When I execute this code here is what i get:

An exception of type 'System.Net.ProtocolViolationException' occurred in but was not handled in user code

I'm really not sure what I need to do here. Any help is greatly appreciated!
