Verizon refused to allow me to transfer....

I moved from where I had my previous Verizon Fios service, and I called to trasfer the service to the new house.  The lady said I was unable to transfer--that I had to begin a new 2 year contract.  I didn't want a new contract.  I wanted only to finish out the previous one that I was still in.  She said I couldn't do that because of the move.  I refused a new contract and told her to cancel the account.  I never received a bill even though they had my address.  I have now been sent to collections.  How is this OK when Verizon refused to allow me to fulfill my contract???
