*Not* using navigation properties with Entity Framework?

Does anyone know if it's possible to not use the navigation properties feature of the entity framework for tables linked with a foreign key?

for example, if my client table has an AddressId, I want that AddressId in my model, I don't want it to have a .Address property. But I have thus far been unable to figure out how to do this.

Sure, you can do this. It's just that the designer won't help you very much. Delete the navigation property, and add a scalar property for AddressId. It will work, but you'll have to be careful about hitting Update Model in the designer, as it may try to "fix" things for you. It's worth getting used to editing EDMX; it's not that bad.
