this.persistenceMapperClient1.Uri = "http://localhost:52150/EcoProjectWindowsPhone71PMPWCF.svc";

You may find multiple entries – check them all.

NOTE: If you are looking at a PersistenceMapperClient that runs on a PhoneEmulator you should not expect Localhost to work. After all Localhost would be the phone?! Well on the WindowsPhone emulator Localhost is NOT the phone – it is the your dev-pc so you can safely use localhost.
