Amy --  Kelly pretty much answered your question about the tunes for the pump.      It's not at all like getting ring tones for your phone.   The options in EZ Manager are old songs and really basic probably due to copyright.  I don't know how to do the keyboard either.   Once upon a time I transferred a saved file but can't remember how I did it now. 

Comment by Kelly WPA on December 10, 2010 at 2:12pm

Amy, the Ping comes with some sample music that you can add to the pump to play instead of the normal alerts.  There is also a little keyboard in the program you can write your own music if you know how.  There is also a way to transfer some in - not sure how to do that though.  I forgot about the Christmas music until Diana posted so I will have to transfer that over to my pump (it comes with the software).

DianaS you can upload tunes onto the pump???

Comment by Sharon Fung on December 10, 2010 at 10:26am

Just changed my infusion set for my grade 1-3 classroom-they were fascinated! Love teaching them about diabetes care.  They're very excited about me new pump :)

My pump just played jingle bells.  (low cartridge alarm)  I love this made me smile on a morning where I'm taking care of a freshly post op hubby, a puking dog, and a sick daughter.  I want to run away from home.   

Does anybody got any good tunes to upload to the pump?

Laura S, this doesn't seem to exactly apply to you because it requires having no coverage for pumps, not just poor coverage but there's interesting information that might help

it talks about the pumps they get that have been recertified [for a fee] and potential extended warranties. maybe animas can do a recertification and extended warranty for you? looks like if that option is available it might be a few hundred dollars
Comment by Laura S. on December 5, 2010 at 2:42pm
Well, Yeah.
New HMO quote is in for 2011.
Now up to $870 per month, but still only 9 percent higher than this year.
Durable Medical though is still at 50 percent.
Not sure what I will do when this Ping goes out of warranty.
Maybe they have deals on refurbished pumps.

Hello, I'm Carlos. Just joined tudiabetes. I was diagnosed with type 1 three years ago. It's gone pretty well. Got the ping about a year ago and it sure made control a lot easier. Looking forward to meeting you all. Thanks

Hi to all of you! I'm Riccardo, right now a new member, and dad of Nicola (now 11 y/o) who has been diagnosed type 1 when he was 8 y/o. He has a 2020 Animas pump. A great one!
