I've been subbed since day 1 but i'm afraid i'll have to let it slide soon, F2P says u can only play 2 characters actively.
But can you buy extra character slots?

From listening to a swtor podcast, Yes. Freepers CAN buy new slots with cartel coins. However, subbers have all 12 unlocked ad CANNOT buy more. stinks if you wantd all 16 differentclass/roles I suppose.

So let's say I have 4 characters right now...and let my sub end in a month. How many characters can I access?

So it's a good thing there are only 8 different classes/roles, so you have 4 extra in case you somehow didn't realize the empire side mirrors the republic side, and doubled up on the same class for some reason.

2. They said they were going to add an unlock to the cartel shop shortly after it goes live, but it won't be available right away.

From the FAQ Post:

Ripster: There is a welcome screen that lists a benefit of subscribing as 10 additional slots. Will this mean subscribers will have 22 or that F2P will have 2?

Blaine: Great question and we want to make sure we’re clear on this one. Subscribers will still have 12 character slots available on a single server. F2P players will have 2 (as will Preferred). At Launch, we are not enforcing the penalty on subscribers who convert to Free-to-Play, but we will in a subsequent patch. A further wrinkle is that if you have more than two and you delete characters at Launch, you will not get that slot back. Example: I have 10 characters as a subscriber this November, but in December I cancel my subscription. When I login, I can still use all 10 characters (for now), but I cannot create new ones and if I delete one, I will have 9 and not be able to create another until I go down to 1. Make sense?
