I reactivated my old account and did not get anything back. I know they said our sims would be gone but I got no skill locks back or anything. I specifically resubscribed with a pay subscription to get these back. I'm not sure when or if they have run the amnesty program but I hope I get my stuff back as promised. You can come back for free right now by REACTIVATING your old account at this page http://ea-land.ea.com/register/free.php and then by downloading the game from the same link. Most likely, your Sim is no more, but if you come back to the game this month, you will get your earned privileges back (gifts, skill locks etc. in EA-Land) when we run our amnesty program at the end of the month. Today you can play for free in our test city called 'Test-Center 3', in a few days you will be able to also play for Free in the 'EA-Land' city.
