Actually I have given up on the pod....way too many problems for me, and Insulet is unwilling to help. I admit they will send me anew pod evrery time I have a problem, but I have had too many to count and I am tired of calling. thanks for the info on the 'Ping' which is the pump I am training on tomorrow. I will keep you posted.
