I received this today: Hello xxx xxx's subscription to The Sims Online™ will expire in 7 days. To continue your game play uninterrupted, just click here to login to your account and activate your billing. In seconds you'll be back in the game. Don't leave your Sims, friends and neighbors behind! Upgrade to full user status today to keep playing The Sims Online. Upgrading is fast and easy and there are many different payment options to choose from. (tic) Does this mean we can continue playing after 1st Aug if we activate the billing? No wonder ppl are still having billing issues if they haven't bothered to sort through their automated billing/expiry notices. Makes you wonder how many ppl will be getting billed after the game closes down, cos from what I have read there were still ppl being billed.
