Charged installation fee after being promised it would be waived

I signed up for fios last week over the phone. The person who I spoke with mentioned the installtion fee, but I told him if I ordered online it said the $99 installation fee would be waived. He agreed, and said not to worry you won't be charged for the installation fee. Well, I just received my first bill. Obviously, the fee is on my bill! 

One of the main reasons I switched over to fios was because their pricing was extemely attractive, on top of the waived $99 installation fee. I think it's unfair to be blindsided by this and a terrible way to treat a new customer. 

I hope a Verizon agent can see this so we can get this issue sorted out.

Hi kingbish99,

Your issue has been escalated to a Verizon agent. Before the agent can begin assisting you, they will need to collect further information from you.

Not here. This is a customer helping customer forum.

as far as I know the waived fee is on the online orders. Sales reps will lie to make a sale, where the computer ordering does not.

you can cancel and order online to get the discount. Never believe anything from a chat or telephone sales agent. Think! They are trying to make a sale and a commission.
