Such a high price for something they didn't have to break a sweat to do. In my opinion a BIG WASTE OF MONEY.i was so pissed O_O ... Anyway my question: is there any way to factory reset without having to get charged $100 again. Can this be done without them?

When you reset the phone it should guide you to and actually dial the number to activate it on its own. Mine did this morning after a factory reset. The *228 is an option as stated above as well and was told to definitely do the *228 option 2 for roaming after completing the option one activation. I'd call the verizon tech support and speak to a supervisor and get a refund or credit after they charged you what they did. *611 and pick tech support to reach them.
