Wrong Disconnection & Charge a new activation fee


I hope this is my unique experience with Verizon service, but like to let you know this may happen to you also.

After 2 years agreement, Verizon bumped up the rate about by $20/month.  I called and asked disconnection on 7/29/2014, but they did on 7/24, when I found my servivce was gone, I called immediately in the morning of 7/24.  Per Verizon representative, recoverying the service was not possible without going through new service request, new account number, etc --it took 3 hours in the morning on the phone.  Then, Verizon's estimated bill was emailed to me.  It shows that Verizon will charge 'one time activation of $69.99 (each bill I need to pay $23.33, but I will disconnect it on 7/29 ...so I should pay full).  I called back to the service.  Now, the representative told me that they would not waive it.  Supervisor even told me that his records show that my service was disconnect on 7/21 not 7/24.  I tried to correct him, he keep saying his records are correct (his name is Dan and never gave me his full name or contact) and could not waive the fee.   After about 5 minutes of talking with him back and forth , he agreed to put a note that would indicate the one time activation fee would be waived.  However, I am not sure it would not come up again -- because when I reactivate the service, I specifically asked service representative about it, and she said there would be a note to waive it, then I found there was no note when I called again after receiving the estimated bill...
