MrManhattan replied to rivey's discussion 'Does your Confirm button move?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have noticed this a see a major problem with now the Pod confirms a cannula insertion. If you aren't careful its easy to press the "Discard" button during the process due to how the button moves."

"Wow! We must be very lucky here in the UK. Replacement pods always arrive the day after I call - and we don't even need to return the faulty ones; they just require the batch/lot number."

Wren replied to rivey's discussion 'Anybody getting their return packs for the failed pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"My replacement pods and return box arrived about 2 weeks ago, and it only took 2 days. I'm not sure if they expedited it but they did say they could overnight them and asked how many I had left. I had 10."
