Posting data to a php script is blocking.  But, it only takes milliseconds to do the transaction, so it will feel very light.  You can have your php script echo data back to you based on success or failure from its point of view.  That echo data will be placed into the variable you are putting into. 

You can then decide what to to based on the contents of that variable.
