EA clearly stated that their numbers were accurate as of Feb. 1, which is well after the initial free 30 day period. They haven't released a single statement claiming otherwise since that investor conference call. Whoever told you what you are claiming lied to you.
During that call Eric Brown, the CFO said, "The majority of these subscribers are paying customers already
." That was during the conference call. The 300k number is people who decided not to subscribe, not people who never played.
