If your experience is the same as what we have seen so far, nothing will happen after you sign up. But at least you get to sit in the front of the queue.

Same here for more than 24h. Not even a Mail that acknowledged the sign up nor was I asked what Level (Basic vs Full) i'd like to use.
Not the best way to start a new way to work or do I have a different expectation how this might look like, today!?

That is a big fat misunderstanding at IBM what "Freemium" is. There is only "Free" at For "mium" you buy SmartCloud Notes and let the admin select between iNotes and Verse.

Well, when searching for IBM Verse on IBM cloud marketplace, there is a try free button. Gess were are you redirected to?

If you want all the cool stuff, you have to know that you have don't want IBM Verse, but IBM Connections Cloud S1.
If you want to try that first before you may buy it, you are redirected to IBM Connections (cloud).
Great product marketing/product strategy to brand the free/less functional version with the new name and sell the full featured product (as anticipated by the customer) with a completely different Name the customer already has to know.
