Description John Miller [MSFT] 2014-08-01 18:23:59 UTC
### Overview: 

    Attached is a sample Xamarin.Forms iOS / Android project. Both the platform projects have Link SDK Assemblies set. When running the iOS version, it works fine. On Android it crashes possibly due to the linker removing parts of System.ServiceModel. 

### Steps to Reproduce: 

    1. Run the iOS project.
    2. Enter anything for username / password. 
    3. Press the login button. 
    4. Login Successful is shown. 
    5. Repeat steps 1, but this time with the Android project. 

### Actual Results: 

    The Android project crashes:

### Expected Results: 

    That the Link Assemblies would not cause an issue on Android that it does not create on iOS.

### Build Date & Platform: 

   XA 4.12.6
   XI 7.2.5

I am unable to replicate on master => suppose it is fixed.
