    We have received the pump and have been using it for a couple of weeks in manual mode. Sensors are backordered so we are waiting for those. My son took a break from the minimed cgm quite a while ago before the newer sensors came out. He does not have fond memories:frown:. I can't wait to start with the new sensors but he is less than excited. Thanks for all the info. Will definitely be checking back once we can switch to auto mode.

    We are still waiting on our sensors for the 670g. It's on my list to call & check status on our order. I know my daughter still has a box or so on the sensors for the 630.

    Ok, so as I posted above, we received the sensors in October & I shipped them to my daughter at college in Utah. She set up a virtual training with the minimed rep, who works with our California endo. MY understanding was that she was going to do the training a couple weeks before coming home for Christmas, and then go to auto-mode once she saw the endo. Well, she got home 12/20 & a day or two in, I find out that, oh she has been on auto-mode for like 3 weeks, and "I'm sure I told you that!" Um. no. This is life with a child in college! So far so good. At the visit, they said that 70% were in range numbers & the little bit I saw, the ones that were out of range were slightly out of range, not bad. Unfortunately she didn't get the a1c drawn until the day after her endo appointment. I need to see if I can call & get the numbers from the pediatrician(THEY will still talk to me, lol). This system seems to be working good for my daughter, and definitely makes me more comfortable. It is very hard to go from being in charge of your kids diabetes to them doing it "all."

    One thing she said was that sometimes it seems it doesn't recognize the calibrations. She complained that in a shift at work that was six hours, she did test/calibrate on her break, but it didn't seem to take & then by the time she got off work, it had switched to manual mode. Not sure if she was doing the calibrations correctly or not, or completely or not. Hard to say if this is user error or an issue.

    Wondering how anyone else is doing on this system.
