RE: [IP] Here is a thought.



To Weird Jenn...Just to let you know, the Disetronic DTRONplus pump does
vibrate for all alarms, as well as "beep."  A nice feature for those who
are hearing impaired.......

I think its a decent idea.  I'm deaf, myself and although the earpiece 
prolly wouldn't do much for me, I have other pump companies why they
don't 
have a vibrate feature.  Because the Animas doesn't vibrate, my choices
in 
pumps are more limited that the average person.
