"I have never used, nor learned to use, the Ping remote. I got the Animas three years back because I was told there would be an Animas pump with a CGM soon ( as if, some three and a half years later I am still waiting)."

"I just don't think about it much anymore. I know that the Vibe will correct most of the things I hate about the Ping. I rarely use the remote. It is so slow and the scrolling is close to impossible. I can more accurately scroll on the pump. So…"

"Zoe - It looks like we'll have a "cafeteria" of choices with Animas. You'll be able to continue with the Ping and its meter-remote and I can upgrade to the Vibe and still have a separate receiver for night-time alerts. It does…"

"Since I already have the Dex G4 system, I'll only be interested in upgrading the pump. Luckily, for this $99 upgrade I won't have to seek any approval from the insurance company. Laddie, I know you were less than thrilled with the change…"

"Your last graph description of having a Dex receiver and the Vibe pump as a receiver is ideal for me. I can get dependable night-time alerts and then just use the pump for the CGM receiver during the day. I hope I don't run into any difficulty…"

"When I purchased my Ping is early December I was enrolled in the $99 upgrade program and I think that it is automatic for those with a Ping that is under warranty. I am sure that will be for the pump only and you will have to be approved by…"

Zoe replied to firstflorde1's discussion 'Animas Vibe' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"wow, that is weird! But I guess the Vibe is set up differently in order to integrate it smoothly with the CGM. otherwise how would it be different from the Ping (except for the unfortunate lack of a meter/remote!). Still seems weird to me to call…"

Zoe replied to firstflorde1's discussion 'Animas Vibe' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I was wondering about that, Terry. I don't know much of anything about CGMs, but it would seem if it is an integrated system that the whole point is it comes as a complete Package, not counting the sensors of course which are like the infusion…"

Animas Vibe

Hi, I am sorry for this dumb question but is the Animas Vibe pump already available in the USA? Last time I called animas I was told it was not going to be available until the end of the year 2013. If the pump is already available does anyone know how much it cost to upgrade from the ping pump?Thanks,SoniaSee More
