Given the wrong information

On May 16th I applied online for FiOS in my new apartment. On May 19th a sales rep told me on the phone they could install it the next day, on May 20th. I was happily surprised by this fast service, until... I got an e-mail from them telling me that installation was scheduled for JUNE 20th (!), so basically a month later! I had already moved into my new apartment, without phone, TV or internet.

I've been calling Verizon every 2 days on my cell since but nobody can give me an answer or change the date (they are sympathetic to my case though). They keep telling me to call back or that someone will contact me the same day, but this never happens.

They also told me that the sales rep messed up and they can't do anything about it!? I'm starting to wonder what is happening inside this strange mysterious structure called Verizon.

I just got off the phone with customer service again after a 56 minutes call... again.

It can not be normal to have to wait A MONTH for an installation everybody from Verizon is telling me should take 2 to 5 business days!! Anybody had the same experience?
