I ordered my verizon Fios service over the phone and was told that acitvation fees would be waived.  The representative incorrectly recorded my e-mail address so I never received the terms of service.   When I received my bill there was a magic $23.33 x 3 internet activation charge.


After calling Verizon I was told a supervisor was required to waive the charge.  After explaining how I was told the fee would be waived and I did not receive my terms of service to verify, she said verizon does not waive charges!   I cannot believe this company that I have been with for over 6 years and maintain two fios accounts would treat a customer in this manner.  


I thought verizon was better than the other guys about slipping additional charges into the bill.  Now I am wondering if not sending me terms of service was a legitimate mistake or a way to sneak in extra fees.


Watch out and do not agree to anything until you have the terms of service in writing!

No sign of the "free tablet" I was supposed to receive with my service either.   


I want to think it is just one bad apple over there, but the response from Verizon has led a lot to be desired.
