Re: [IP] Ultra Meter

What phone number did you use to reach Lifescan?  I called 1-800-227-8862
today to ask about them supplying me with a back up meter to my Profile One
Touch.  They just LOL!!!!  They told me that they do not give or sell
meters, that I would have to buy one locally.  They did not seem concerned
when I mentioned that I would call another company about a meter.
