Ok I hope someone out there can help me. I took advantage of the amnesty program thingy and now am back having an account for the sims online. When I signed up, they gave me a 14 day free trial and it says I'm a registered user. Ok, nothing wrong there, but when I go into EA land to play, I am unable to do anything a REGISTERED USER is supposed to be able to do-such as skill, use money objects. It says on my profile I am a visitor, but aren't I supposed to be the same as a paying registered account since my billing info says "registered user" ? I keep getting conflicting information from different people. Some say that it takes a few days for it to recognize I am a registered user, others say I have to enter billing information. I am more than happy to sign up for the regular 9.99 a month thing, but seeing that my billing information page says Im a registered user already and I can't get into all the properties. I don't want to waste my money on a "lets see if this works" type of thing. I understand that there are free accounts for ea land, but again I shouldn't be under the free account status since I am technically a registered user. Someone please let me know if this is a known problem with the game, problem with my brain lol, or whatever lol. Help!! I want to play lol.
