Never Contacted and Now Have Collection Agency After Me

Back in Februrary I terminated my FIOS services because I was moving. I returned all the equipment and payed all of the charges on the account as far as I knew. I have always paid my bills on time and would never leave an account unfinished. Just yesterday I got a debt collectors letter in the mail. I never once receieved a piece of mail about the balance on my account, nor did I receive any mail from the 1st debt collector (YES there have apparently been TWO). I have received no emails regarding the status of my account since once you terminate your acount, your verizon email gets terminated as well. How was I supposed to know about this account balance? Verizon never contacted me, even though they had all my information and I even use their phone service- I have always been a loyal customer and feel very blindsided by this. I called the agency today and paid, and I am now worried that I have a delinquency that wil reflect negatively on my credit report. It seems very unfair considering I didn't get ONE piece of notice that my account had a balance until just last night when I received a letter in the mail from a collection agency. I can't seem to find a phone number to contact Verizon's debt collection department and am looking for a way to contact someone regarding this negative activity towards my credit.
