Bait and switch on contract - need help

On February 19th, I was offered a $31 discount on a FIOS double play bundle if I signed up for a 2-year contract.  So I did.  Instead, when I received my bill, the new amount was $13 higher.  When I called customer service (which was a miserable experience by itself due to long hold times, hangups, etc.), the representative refused to honor the promised price and they said they had "no notes" on the account regarding the price.  This is an experience that many others on this forum have had.  They could not understand that I never would have signed up for a contract only to receive a higher price!  That would not make sense.

So I asked the representative to cancel the contract (since it was within the 14 days) and put my account back to the month-to-month status it was in.  They did this but continued with the same higher price, which was unacceptable.  When I called again tonight, they claimed that I could not go back to my old bundle price.   This is unfair since I was never advised that the old bundle price would be gone when I signed up for the new contract, which I would have kept had they honored the promised price on the contract to begin with.  

Over several phone calls and hours, various representatives attempted to put back my old month-to-month contract but each one either chopped services or put in other hidden fees.  I never could get a supervisor - either the line would hang up or I would be left on hold forever.  Clearly this is a purposeful tactic by Verizon to get me to give up.  But I won't.
