"Thanks, Siri. That is a shortcut back to the home screen. After two plus years of using the Ping, we'll see if I can remember to use that trick. I was happy with my G4 before the software upgrade so I think I will be fine with the Vibe. But…"

Leaving MiniMed for the Animas Vibe? Anyone Else?

Hello,I have been using a Minimed pump since diagnosed (April, 1999) and for the past 3 have really enjoyed the use of a Dexcom. Like many others, I am thrilled about the Animas Vibe being approved in the US since it syncs with the Dexcom and eliminates the carrying one extra device.While I know nobody has technically "yet" switched to the Vibe (my rep said they start shipping in January), has anyone else switched from the Minimed to Animas? I am curious your experience, if you enjoyed it, did…See More

"How are you doing with your G4 at this point? I have had mine for 3 months and have terrible readings. It will be accurate for 2-3 days then off by 30%-over 100% for 3-4 days and the cycle starts over. Since it's the same sensor and same site…"

Hey there! How are thing going? Still on the Dex?

Hey, Roxylove -- It doesn't have much of a range. It is about 5 feet, no fooling. I have had out of range several times. I sleep with the receiver under my pillow and sometimes, depending upon where the sensor is it will stop communicating and I have to move the receiver a little bit. That's the only downside of the Dex. However, it's not that big of a deal. I still find myself running back to my desk to get it if I've taken it out of my pocket.
