Setup Fee Not Waived

I signed up for Verizon Fios at my new apartment. When I mentioned that there was an online deal, of waived $90 setup fee, and $10 off per month, I was told over the phone that I could just order over the phone and have this noted on the account. No need to start over online.

Now after arguing for 45 minutes with Verizon, they said they won't honor the activation fee being waived! They even see the $10 off, but said the representative didn't write anything, so they offered to only charge me $45. (Thanks, that's not the point).

I can't possibly stay with them after this, it's such an insult after years as a mobile family plan and multiple installation residential customer of theirs. Over $500 a month goes to them each month and they're being so petty. I feel totally taken advantage of. The supervisor and call center person were totally unsympathetic.

It's going to be such a pain to get phones switched and install other companies at the apartment. Is there anything I can do to straighten this out before I have to start this ridiculous journey?
