If any of you are using the Omni Pod system (currently a user) please let me know your likes and dislikes / concerns. I am asking because at times I want to throw the pods out the window. have taken a happer to some of them when the alarm would not shut off. I have made plenty of calls to the co.
The customer service is wonderful! but they need to correct serious issues with
their product.

I heard good & bad things about the Omni Pod system but truth be told you will hear that about all pumps … I myself have been pumping since this past November … My pump is by Medtronic … Love my pump , gives me much better control compared to the pens I was using prior …

I've been on the Omni Pod System since July of last year and I've only had 3 pods malfunction on me. Two because I dropped them and one just simply didn't work. In all cases, Insulet replaced the pods, no questions asked. The only time that I get an alarm that will not turn off is when I let the pod go empty. But it shuts off once I start going through a new pod activation.

I used to be on a traditional tubed pump (Animas) before the Omni Pod and while I liked my first pump a lot, I LOVE my Pod. It's not as cumbersome and bulky as my Animas was. It's simple and easy to use and the insertion process is so much simpler and painless over my old pump.

I hope that you can get the "bugs" in yours fixed! Good luck!
