Paid Accounts Versus Free Accounts

    I apologize if this post is repetition, I read a lot of posts on the difference between paid accounts and free accounts and there's still things I don't quite understand. Specifically, this scenario:

    I have a paid account, which I guess entitles me to be able to earn money, have a large lot size, and whatever else goes along with that. I need to change my payment date by a couple of weeks, and when I've had to do this in the past, I usually just temporarily canceled it, then reinstated on the date that I need to change to. I need to do so again.

    But now that there are free accounts, is it possible to reinstate it temporarily as a free account so that I can play during those couple of weeks? Or if it becomes a free account, even for just a moment, will I permanently lose all my paid account goodies?
     
  2. You could still play it as a free account but just remember that in EA Land you can't earn money or get skill. If however, you play in TC you have no restrictions. I hope this helped.

    You will be restricted to only your primary Sim. The others will disappear from your selection screen.
    I don't know if this means they (and everything they own) will be deleted or not.
    Best to wait for someone in the know before you do something you may not be able to take back.

    I do believe that they would be deleted after either 60 or 90 days of free status. Don't quote me on this, but I think I read it somewhere, just don't remember where.

    You should have the normal 30 days before you would lose your house, and 90 days before you lose sims. I dont thnk they've completely implemented this yet tho. I would say for 2 weeks your fine and go ahead and do it. During those 2 weeks tho you wont be able to go to money and skill houses in EA Land.
