As others have pointed out, policy is policy. This is pretty cut and dry. You were off by 3 days. You, earlier, admitted to a 3 day delay when you started your service. When I switched away from sprint I waited a week beyond the date I signed, just to make sure there wasn't any sort of delay, plus I called them before I ported my number away.
Did you call before leaving to verify your date? Would've waiting another few days, to prevent you from wanting to "scorch the earth" because you were wrong on your start date?
