Re: [IP] RE: [IPn] Your opinion on new pump matters!

I chose my pump the whole way through (omnipod).  I didn't question what
their motives were in doing the survey as they did.  I did wonder how you
could select a pump without knowing anything about it.  I didn't care.  I
love my pump and have no desire to change, so that's what I checked off.
