Not true, at all.

If the Web Service is using SOAP, which 99.5% of all ASP.NET Web Services do (because that's what the ASP.NET framework automatically creates for you when you ask for a Web Service) then you
(a) can *NOT* use "GET"; you MUST use "POST"
(b) MUST send a CORRECTLY FORMATTED request, using XML notation, with the XML parameters, etc., that the SOAP service is expecting.

It's not easy. But it can be done.

Google for "SOAP via classic ASP" or something to that effect.
