I've had a Ping for four years and have had nothing but excellent customer service from Animas. In fact, I'm in the process of ordering a new one. I tried the T:Slim, but wasn't happy with it. I think I would really miss the remote since I use it 99% of the time.

Loved the ping, love the whole deal. But ran into terrible customer service issues about three years back. In all sorts of ways.

What negative experiences have you run into using the Ping system, Laura S? I've had one for a while and so far pretty satisfied so just curious. Are you comfortable sharing some specifics? Thanks!

I asked my sales rep. here in Norway(Europe) about these rumors and he said it´s not correct and that Animas is working on a new pump. I asked about the US rumors specifically.

Do what is right for you and your support.
Comment by Laura S. on August 22, 2014 at 7:33pm

They pulled the rep here. And the office I go to has no interest in one pump over another. I asked them, because a fairly well known diabetes blogger said the very same thing. I've used four Animas, one Cozmo and Two Minimed and my last year with the Ping was the worst.....Animas aint what it used to be. And there is outsourcing going on.

mrattler...Animas is not going out of business. I talked to Animas myself. THEY ARE NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. The diabetes educator at your endos office could have been partial to another company's insulin pump, perhaps is what I will say. I have an Animas pump and I am now ordering a new Animas pump. I will not order any other kind because Animas is what I like. It does what I need it to do. and it have the smallest increments of insulin in their boluses and basals. It is the best pump I have ever had and I have had other kinds. I have worn and insulin pump for 10 years.

Comment by Laura S. on August 21, 2014 at 7:24pm

Yes. they pulled out of our city. I was contemplating using my Ping for awhile and was advised to stay with my MM pump. I had issues three years ago with them, and apparently it is getting worse. Maybe the focus is on Europe.

Blimey hope not!!! Here in UK they're owned by Johnson & Johnson.. It's difficult to imagine as more & more diabetics are starting to use pumps, and in UK it's increasingly the Vibe as people want the Dexcom integration. I know there could be allsorts going on behind the scenes, including expenses we have no idea about, but they do appear to be a major player in the insulin pump field. Hope your educator's wrong :(
Comment by mrattler on August 14, 2014 at 9:26pm

The diabetes educator at my endo's office told me today that it is very likely that Animas will go out of business in the near future. Anyone else heard of this?
