Payment not prorated

I am hoping to get help on the board, since wait time on the phone is ridiculous, and Verizon does not have a customer service email address easily accessible.

I cancelled my service mid-month in February and returned the box shortly thereafter. However the bill has never been adjusted, and Fios tried to charge me the full $92. As I waited for the mistake to be fixed, I got charged anadditional $5 late fee. 

If I did not change my payment method from automatic after cancelling the service, I may have not even noticed the overcharge (just as I hadn't noticed my payment for Internet service going from $47 to $92 for eight months, after the "two year agreement" had expired, and Fios "forgot" to notify me about it doubling.) 

How do I get Fios to adjust the bill without spending 40 minutes or more waiting on the phone? Is there a way to email them?

Thank you.

I just spoke to the customer service rep, and according to them, the Internet service refund IS NOT prorated. That's after they claimed otherwise last month. Not sure whether it is legal, but keep n mind if you want to cancel the Internet service, keep it until the end of your current billing cycle. Otherwise, Verizon Fios WILL not make it known and WILL take advantage of you. As they always seem to.
