No. you can't stop a MM from clicking. However, most people (well, at
least I) don't notice it at all, and when I do I don't find it annoying.
Also, even if YOU hear it, it is very very unlikely that anyone around you
will. (i.e. in a movie theater)

LOL . . .not really :)

Call Minimed and they will a) send you samples of any set you'd like to try,
and/or b) arrange to exchange some of your original boxes for other kinds.
I did both.

I thought I'd hate it but I actually don't mind it or have a preference one
way or the other. I use both sofsets and sils, and when I use the sofsets I
use the sofserter. It doesn't hurt. I use sils for my "emergency" sets and
when travelling because they are smaller packages and you don't need an
inserter to use them, which makes them better for carrying around. I tend
to use sofsets at home.
Hope this helps! good luck!! --Gianna
