remotely upgrading service via the tv remote

If someone could possibly tell me how to go about this... I had a very basic tv package (local, HABO+ SHOWTIME + 50/50 Internet) for 73.00 a month. Someone I live with upgraded our TV package to extreme HD via the TV by using the remote. It doubled the bill. MY BILL.,MY ACCOUNT. It was not authorized. I have spent two angry nights on the phone with verizon customer service ending up in tears both times trying to get my old contract back. To be told that now for what I was paying before I can only have local tv and 50/50 and sign on to another two year contract paying 180.00 a month for Extreme HD which I did not authourise. I just wan to go back to my other plan. 

I have spoken to the person who did this and they did not understand that there was a contract involoved and how much this was actually costing me. There is no box or anything stating " this is a new two year contract". 

I just want to go back to exactly how it was becauseI did not authorise this. but I am getting the run around. I had no call backs when I was promised, I was told I was called back and wasn't. I had no missed calls, I had no VM's. There are other fees and charges on the bill with no explanination. I have received many different answers from multiple customer service people. I am about to cancel my contract and go back to TIME WARNER!
