Subscriber changed to F2P and items gone?

I know there are other threads, but I have had a different issues, at least slightly. I have been a subscriber for months now, no lapse, played earlier today with no issues, and I was billed for another month just a couple of days ago. I just now logged in and I am F2P option. Quickbars gone, credits to 200k, etc.

After waiting a bit, I logged back in - credits back, quickbar back but RESET so I have to set everything up again, but now my Collector's Edition items (speeder, flare gun, etc.) are GONE.

Anyone else having that specific issue? I've had zero issues since it went F2P up until right now. And 45 minutes ago, I was playing with no issues. Less than an hour later, and I want to give up. Sigh.

Had the same issue.
Logged out of the game for half an hour, when I came back I was F2P. Relogged and had subscriber status again.
I got my bonus-items via mail, though (pre-order crystal, Tauntaun Ram, Founder token)
But I believe I didn't get all of the money back (some 50k seem to be missing)
Haven't logged in any of the other characters yet since I'm a bit afraid it has affected them, too.
I did write an ingame ticket for the issue.

Thanks for the reply! I, too, just got my items back in the mail, and I also finally setup (all over again) my quickbars which was vastly more annoying than I thought it would be. I truly don't know if any credits are missing, but like you, honestly think I had far more than what I got back during this flip between subscriber to F2P to subscriber.

It happened to me too, today. I think I didn't miss anything, but had to rebuild the quickbars, and yes, it was annoying (and scary).

I looked over everything more carefully, and I am now fairly certain that no credits were actually missing. I think what threw me was logging in and suddenly being F2P and having only 200k and THEN getting them back - just didn't look right. As of now, I'm back up and running as I should be, but yes - rebuilding the quick bars was the worst part... aside from the fear of losing everything, of course!

I also just experienced this. Logged out for dinner. Logged back in and i was basically in F2P mode. Logged out to see what was going on with my sub. I just got billed yesterday for another month. Thought "what the heck is going on?" Went to log back in and there were my 'bonus' items in the mail and all my hotbars reset. Not fun to have to go redo my hotbars
