    We went to a JDRF retreat over the weekend and we were told there that MM would be sending out the new meters to everyone with a MM pump by the end of March.

    medtronic is replacing the bd meter with a new meter that takes one touch strips yes mother company lifespan but lifespan would not be responsible for shipping costs of the new meters so box would come from medtronic

    I have not gotten a replacement meter from minimed (my son uses the MM pump)...but we did get our free ultra-mini today. :) It was in a pretty small plain white box from Lifescan.

    We were at the Dr.'s on Monday and also heard "March", but maybe... Here's hoping that it is!! I am ready - we have lost 2 of the 3 we had (anyone else have the problem of CONSTANTLY losing things??) and I didn't want to pay $99 for something that was soon to be replaced! Keep us updated!

    Do you have to do anything to ge the new meters? I have several of the ones that are linked to the pumps. do I need to call?

    thanks for posting this thread.

    I am really tired of these BD meters, especially with the new Nova strips. They suck. Or rather, they don't suck (the blood properly)!

    I would think they would replace any of the BD link meters that you own:) As long as they know that you own them.. say, if you bought two, they should replace two, but if you bought one, and someone gave you theirs, then MM wouldn't know that you had it so probably wouldn't replace that one.. :)

    Heard the same thing about replacing meters around March. You don't have to call, you are just suppose to get them. I wonder if it will be smaller than the BD? Hope so, then maybe I would use them.

    Of course, I think you have to get a new cable to download info.:rolleyes:

    Let us know what was in your box. :D

    I didn't know anything about these new meters. So, it is a one-touch? And is it wirelessly compatible with the pump? Will it use the same strips as the one touch ultra?

    It is replacing the BD, so yes it will talk to the pump. It will use the one touch strips. I am wondering if they will send a cord to download it?

    I would be interestd to know if the new meter would be interactive with the CGMS. Then life would great.
