Unreturned equipment charge showing on myverizon not on account when I call Options

I closed my account at the end of March and returned my equipment. I was charged for untreturned equipment $240+tax, even though Verizon acknowledged that the equipment was received. I have been going through one month of going back and forth on the phone and being told the charge would be removed and it not being removed. My latest statement came out yesterday and the charge was still there and listed as past due (as it has been for the past few months). I called and the first lady I spoke to said that my balance was $240+tax, I explained my situation and she transferred me. The next guy I talked to after some time said that I was issued a credit 2 weeks ago and he didn't know why the charge was still on my statement, that he showed a $0 balance. So why does my statement say $240+tax past due if the credit was issed weeks ago? And why did the first verizon rep show that I had a balance? Do I have a balance or not? I just don't want to get sent to collections on a technicallity as I have seen has happened to other posters.
