I have played this game since Early Release. And when my friend wanted to try the game, I thought the free trial program would let us play together. No, what I get is a friend's toon who can't chat, leaving no point in letting us play with friends! If you can't chat, you can't look for groups, strategize, hell, you can't even tell your friend you made this guy! This is absurd, and I'm not going to demand anything, just saying that I think they should either fix the Free Trial Program, or get rid of it. I understand they want people to buy it, creating 'freemium', but this isn't the way to go. I'd rather be limited to level 15 than limited to not being able to chat! BioWare, you've lost all other free trials from me.

If your friend is unable to use the channels they should be (as listed in the FAQ here: http://www.swtor.com/info/faq/game#q400150), please let us know!
