There's really nothing to argue about. All cancellations/changes within 24 hours with UA are free. End of story.

so in other words the airlines that choose to provide a full refund within 24 hours of booking even for flights booked 7 days or before are going beyond letter of the law?

I just canceled my award ticket after 24hrs. Rep told me that there would be no fee but miles would take 7-14 days to go back into my account. I confirmed w/ her 3 times during the call about no fee. I just logged into my account and there's an option to put the miles back into my account but it will charge me. Should I call again? Or should I wait a week and see what happens?

No. Canceled.
Interesting. So where can you ask the system to re-deposit the miles?

Next to the ticket that got canceled it says "view"  and also says "more". When you click on more it takes you to a page that gives you the option to change the flight or redeposit the points for a fee.

I would wait just because why not. But I don't think its going to go back. I would wait a couple of days and if it does not come back Id call in then.

I repeated numerous times to the rep "are you sure I won't get charged an the points will go back into my account?" and she answered yes. So I'll call back in a couple days. They have it recorded. I got her name as well.

Don't think they really record the calls. You should've tell her to note that on the record.

She must've cancelled without redeposit.
