I was told that if I 'self-installed' my residential internet service, then I would not be charged the $99 install fee.  I have been charged and am trying to get this charge refunded.  I have called the Verizon service line and been left on hold forever.  (I think one time over an hour.  I called just before 5pm EST..)

I tried the virtual assistant which was no help.

Does anyone have a contact phone number to talk to a person who can help, or have any other recommendations besides cancelling my service?

Re: refund

Follow the instructions in the terms of service.

please note the email confirmation would have stated $0 for installation under your service. Install date, speed, other services, customer service number. Etc.

verizon Fios has a 30 day total satisfaction guarantee. A simple call to 1-800-VERIZON and select the cancel service option will get you a representative who in order to save the account will credit out that install fee. Yes I know you don’t want to quit but a threat of it will be enough under that 30 day guarantee.

Good Luck
