Issues with new router

I upgraded to a new router and Verizon sent me an email with 3 locations that I could pick up the router. I went to all 3 locations, but it turns out they sent me to 3 different UPS stores instead, and wasted my entire Friday evening. Earlier today(monday), I used google maps to find a fios store and I got my new router. I plugged in the coax cable, the Ethernet cord, and the power cord in the same location I removed the original router from, but now the Verizon fios app is telling me I need to contact a representative to complete installation. This is particularly irritating because I specifically asked the Verizon rep, who UPSOLD me on the new router, if my new router would be plug n play. She ensured me that I would the transition would be seemless... I missed a work meeting today due to this issue, and if this isnt fixed today i will be cancelling my service.
