wow awesome sounds great! is this to their regular number?  1 800 452 1201?

Sounds right, I think you have to call the ticketing office that issued your ticket.

Also note that $40 is for UA/CA originating awards, fees are different when departing from other countries, see this page for details.

If I make a booking with avios now for tommorow Eve at 8 pm and I cancel the booking tonight or tomorrow morning,  is there a fee?  Do I get a full refund of points and taxes etc..?
I called them but the CSR was so not clear and was giving me attitude.

I don't believe you can cancel within 24 hours of travel.
