I hope I'm understanding everything about free accounts, because my daughter would like to play. On EA-Land site, I saw this: Former Members Of The Sims Online: You can come back for FREE right now by just downloading the game and REACTIVATING your account. If you do so before March 2008, you will get your earned 'account based' privileges back (gifts, skill locks etc...) when we run our 'amnesty' program. So make sure you are in game before that event! This tells me that the "paid" account we used to have for my daughter which has gone inactive for over 5 months, can now be reactivated as a "free trial". It's currently counting down from a 14 day trial. Am I to understand that once the day counts down to zero, she can still log in under the Free Account rules? At the moment, she can only log into TC3. It won't let her go into EA Land, because it says it's only for paid subscribers. But then I saw this here on Stratics under FAQ: SUBSCRIPTIONS - Free Play and Paid Subscriptions Can I play for free? Yes you can play for free. If you have an old account that you no longer pay for, you can simply log in to the latest game version and enter your old account details. EA will automatically register you as a free player. Free Accounts have the following restrictions in EA-Land: # Can only buy a size 0 Lot # No access to skill lots # No money can be earned by in-game objects. # Free accounts can get money from other players or by running a store # Can buy money from EA # Can only sell back as much money as you have purchased. In order to sell back more money you must have a paid account Free accounts do not have any restrictions in TC3 I'm just looking for a little clarity. Will her old account (now reactivated via "EA Land") continue to work past the 14 days, and will she be able to play in EA Land?
