Hello All,

I have been on the new pods for a little over 6 months now and here is the breakdown on how things have worked out so far:

Occlusions: 2 (Both at less than 5 units of insulin left)
Knocked off pods: 4 (All 4 were right arm, bedroom door...ugh)
Fallen off pods: 1 (while on the jet ski @ 90* outside)
Bad out of the box: 0
Bad during priming: 0
PDM Errors: 8 (all stuck keys)
Test Strip errors: About 1,000,000,000,000,000 - that stupid confirmation!!!!

I wear mine 100% on the arms, and so far I am very happy with my numbers and my comfort level of controlling my diabetes with this system. I do test a LOT - at least 8 - 10 times a day, and that really helps me to continually tweak the numbers and keep me dialed in where I like to be.

I had to call customer service last week and ask for a one day early ship because I was down to two pods left, and my hold time was less than a minute, and the customer service rep was very polite and verified everything for me. Next day the pods showed up so once again, I am pleased.

I may be one of the lucky ones, but my Insulet CDE calls or texts me right around every two weeks to check in - she has been great.

All in all I really don't have any complaints at this point. Hope you all are doing well on your Pods!

LOL, love your part on the confirmation issue. I'm probably getting close to your number of fails there too. I usually test about 4 or 5 times a day. I'm just not that into finger mutilation, so next week I'm talking to my Endo about a constant monitor. Which makes me even more upset about the 2 hour notification after change thing, because if I go the constant monitor route, it's useless for the PDM to bug me about that! Grrrrr!
