BW have said that the restriction to only 2 slots for preferred status will be implemented in a future patch. I suspect that it will be at the same time that they allow unlocking new slots on the cartel shop but well I'm often wrong so who knows

I'm very interested in this question, since I would go preferred if I could get more than 2 character slots.

Where did you see that it is currently bugged?

Yes. That's what I suspect as well.

Also Bioware said that when the 2 character slots restriction will be applied, players with more than two characters on current F2P accounts will have to select 2 active characters.

Taken from the FAQ

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?
