So, I bought two new 5s's on Wednesday, and VZW tweeted on Saturday that they would waive all activation fees if you bought this weekend. So I signed onto their CS chat (which works on my iPhone) and asked them to waive the $70 in activation fees I had incurred, since I had missed the promotion by a few days. They were happy to do it, and it came off my bill instantly. If you recently signed up, call or chat them and they will probably waive them for you as well. And if you recently paid the fee, maybe you could tell them you feel less valued now than new customers. Who knows, they might waive it for you to.
