Windows Phone 8 emulator is different then in the past so you'll have to treat it differently. An answer to the same question was answered with this:
The Windows Phone 8 emulator is actually a full virtual machine with its own internal IP address. Therefore,
localhost means the (virtual) phone, not your PC.
To connect to the host PC, you need to enter its internal IP address.
You also need to configure IIS Express and your firewall to accept connections from other computers.
