So has anyone found a backdoor way to clear out all the data in a freestyle meter?
I know the abbott people say no, but I know how clever people can be.

I set the year wrong on one of my meters by accident, so all the readings are in the future.
I'd like to wipe the meter and start over, but nothing in the co-pilot software says we can do that.

I tried leaving the battery out for an extended period, but that didn't work.

I liked that feature in the one-touch meters.

I have the same problem - did not set it up the date correctly when I first bought it! I believe it only stores 200 readings so I am waiting for the future readings to be cleared using that method.
Thats a long time to wait - they are a frustrating company to work with. Their software crashes on Vista 64, so I cant print any of the pretty reports, just look at them. I talk to their tech support and its like talking to a brick wall. I even asked for the interface protocols to write my own software, and they say no, cant do that. I was getting ready to write a letter to Abbott's CEO. I wish I had stuck with my old Accucheck meter, but they were giving away these freestyes - now I know why!
