As of the writing of this letter, we are in focused, internal testing on character copies for PTS. You should expect to see this come within the first part of this year. It will provide free character copies to PTS at any time (with possible restrictions dependent upon our testing needs at any given time). This will also lay the foundation for our new live character transfer system that will be coming later this year.
You're all ready to jump on the B****ing bandwagon and not actually read what the developers give us. Read before you look like a troll guys.

Pretty sure we already read that, just desperate to have them ASAP and hoping it's bioware's number one priority to do it before the expansion.

Really? Cause all I see is 40 pages or people acting like it is not happening. It may not be done before the expansion. If that alone limits you from enjoying the content, then I do not see how you are able to play as it is. The servers all have the same content. I am sure you have friends/guilds that are cooperating on every server.

If not, roll a new toon and buck up until later this year.

already working on a new toon, not a problem with me, but hard to abandon 4 50s. When expansion comes out, I'd have to go back on the server I'm trying to transfer away from just to do the makeb 50-55 content on 4 characters then go back to server I'm trying to move to and do 50-55 content there while being unsure if I should purchase legacy stuff depending on how long it takes for char transfers to get here. "Later this year."=not a valid response to know what I should be doing with my legacy stuff. "Later this year." sounds alot like end of July/Beginning August where server merges happened.

Now, with 1.7 coming up, I have to go to the server I'm trying to transfer away from to participate in the Gree event........pulling me down the mountain I'm trying to climb.

It may not be a big deal to you because it doesn't concern you but it concerns others.

This is true, but at this point in the MMO genre how do you release a game without character transfers from the start? It's a little ridiculous that we're over a year from launch and still don't have it.

With how many people have bailed on this game you'd think they'd be giving people what they want.

At least the reputation system shed some light on my decision if I should buy legacy stuff on the server I'm trying to go to and the answer is no, I shouldnt, I will transfer the entire legacy to the server I'm trying to go to. At least it has shed some light.

It looks like Bioware is more concerned about pumping out content then the minority that needs transfers to enjoy content......

As I said elsewhere, I need to get off my server bad. Being stuck on a PvP server is becoming more and more unbearable day to day.
