You cant find the SVC file on your server, would be my guess. PErhaps you forgot tro make it available?

One of two things has gone wrong.
1) Your service reference is still pointing at a non-existent version of the service on your local machine.
- In this case check the properties in your service reference or connection depending on how you are calling the service and make sure that the path to the service is valid.
2) Your service on the server is not installed or configured correctly. Basically it isn't working correctly.
- If the service isn't deployed correctly then you'll have to figure out why and that is a whole other question that you'll have to ask about.

I deleted the old web reference and added the new one pointing to my sever, I think the service is working because i can access it from my browser and even from my device
