Ya

This needs to be like the refer a friend restrictions... I'm sure it would frustrate real trial players however I can also see reasoning for it to prevent gold spammers.

A Friends Trial character will not be able to use general chat, trade chat, or PvP chat. The character will only be able to use local chat, group chat, guild chat, whisper and responses to whispers.

KyoMamoru makes a good point. Here is what the FAQ says:

"A Weekend Pass Free Trial character will not be able to use general chat, trade chat, or PvP chat. The character will only be able to use local chat, group chat, guild chat, and reply to whispers."

This "help a newbie" is a great idea - but do the restrictions placed on the accounts make the process cumbersome, if not impossible?

When it comes to the Friend Pass, one would be inclined to believe that /whisper will work since you are supposed to be playing with your friends who invited you.
