I am going through the process of getting my Tslim now. It looks cool, but so far the customer service that is handled by a separate supplier is really starting to rub me in an irritating fashion.

Ok good! Lol I am most likely going on the tandem t slim over the omnipod. Looks cooler, holds more insulin and I did read it gives the smallest amount of insulin.

i just got the T:slim hooked up yesterday. So far it is pretty sweet. I love how you can do temporary basal rates and take extremely small doses of insulin to correct your blood sugar. i don't feel like its a guessing game like it was when taking shots, and the smallest increment is 1 unit.

Hi Amanda, can tell me what you love about it? I have heard great things about the technology, but negative things about their support and warranty, as well as trouble with occlusions. I am interested in it but have avoided doing anything until I start hearing more positive reviews. I am using the OneTouch Ping.

That's the touchscreen one isn't it? I'm not sure if that one is even offered in Canada yet (where I'm from). I know my Diabetic clinic just started patients on the Omni Pod last year.
