It is impossible to communicate with Verizon--What an irony!

I am trying to get FIOS service at my cabin in the mountains.  When I call Verizon's number, it doesn't even ring.  I tried their chat room, but it led me to register my account.  Now Verizon wants to send my "full access" code to my billing address. They say I need that "full access" code to order FIOS service.  My billing address is in a different state where my billing service will shred their message.  All the billing service does is pay their bill.  Alternatively, they want to call my cabin number with the code.  I'm not there now and am there only on weekends.  Are they robots?  In order to communicate with them in a non-robotic way, they have forced me to make a public issue out of my personal problem with this post to the "Verizon community."  This is a development that even George Orwell could never have predicted!
