How do you disable security in WCF.  I have tried to disable it but am still getting "caller not authented by the service"

My binding looks like this
        <binding name="basicHttpBinding" closeTimeout="00:30:00" openTimeout="00:30:00"
          receiveTimeout="00:30:00" sendTimeout="00:30:00" maxBufferSize="655360"
          <readerQuotas maxArrayLength="10000" />
          <security mode="None">
            <transport clientCredentialType="None" />

I have manually checked through the Client and server side and security is turned off.

Can I manually create the service references?  Sometimes they dont always map correctly to the service.
