Failed in WCF w/ the message:
The maximum message size quota for incoming messages (65536) has been exceeded. To increase the quota, use the MaxReceivedMessageSize property on the appropriate binding element.

Then, using tha approach in[^], I modified the config through the WCF Test Client's Editor, it works (see the config below).
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
       <!-- The binding block: added through the WCF Test Client Editor -->
                <binding name="BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfo" maxBufferPoolSize="2147483647"
                    maxBufferSize="2147483647" maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647" />
                <binding name="BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfoJson" maxBufferPoolSize="2147483647"
                    maxBufferSize="2147483647" maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647" />
            <endpoint address="http://localhost:35104/TransInfo.svc" binding="basicHttpBinding"
                bindingConfiguration="BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfo" contract="ITransInfo"
                name="BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfo" />
            <endpoint address="http://localhost:35104/TransInfo.svc" binding="basicHttpBinding"
                bindingConfiguration="BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfoJson" contract="ITransInfoJson"
                name="BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfoJson" />
    <!-- The binding block added -->

However, if I re-debug again, the Client.dll.config likes before, the default.config (the biding block is gone), which means the modified config was not saved actually. How can this problem be solved since I have to deploy it on my server? Or where is the default.config so I can modified it. Thanks.
I also tried to dynamically setup the max. message size by the code below. But it does not work.
System.ServiceModel.BasicHttpBinding binding = new System.ServiceModel.BasicHttpBinding("BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfo");
System.ServiceModel.BasicHttpBinding binding2 = new System.ServiceModel.BasicHttpBinding("BasicHttpBinding_ITransInfoJson");

binding.MaxBufferSize = 2147483647;
binding.MaxReceivedMessageSize= 2147483647;
binding.MaxBufferPoolSize = 2147483647;
binding2.MaxBufferSize = 2147483647;
binding2.MaxReceivedMessageSize = 2147483647;
binding2.MaxBufferPoolSize = 2147483647;
System.Xml.XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas myReaderQuotas = new System.Xml.XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas();
myReaderQuotas.MaxStringContentLength = 2147483647;
myReaderQuotas.MaxNameTableCharCount = 2147483647;
myReaderQuotas.MaxArrayLength= 2147483647;
myReaderQuotas.MaxBytesPerRead= 2147483647;
binding.GetType().GetProperty("ReaderQuotas").SetValue(binding, myReaderQuotas, null);
binding2.GetType().GetProperty("ReaderQuotas").SetValue(binding2, myReaderQuotas, null);

Do you have the "Copy to Output Directory" property for the config file set to "Do not copy"?

Problem solved by referring to The procedure is below:
1) In WCF Test Client, from Tools->Options->Client Configuration tab, check-offAlways Regenerate Config When Launching Services option.
2) Edit the configuration through the WCF test Client.
3) Save it.
Thanks for your review.
