Good news, new Diablo III players! You're no longer restricted to Act 1 of the game for the first three days! Thanks to a new patch that fixes several issues, this limitation has been lifted.
However, as Blizzard's forum explains, you still have other temporary restrictions:
These restrictions only last for 72 hours until Blizzard can verify your credit card info. If you don't want this wait, then I'd go buy the disc-based version.
No public game access for unverified digital purchasers;
No auction house access (real money or gold) for unverified digital purchasers;
Unverified digital purchasers cannot trade items or drop items for other players;
Unverified digital purchasers are not able to chat in any public or game channels;
Unverified digital purchasers cannot attach a custom message to friend requests, but they can send/accept friend requests and play with their friends; and
Global Play is not available for unverified digital purchasers.
