 Minimed told me that if Stephen has pain during insertion, there is probably 
going to be a problem with the site and so he should take it out an try a new 
site.  The few times he as "stuck it out" with a site that hurt on insertion 
it has only lasted a day or so.  He also quickly switched to silhouettes 
because the softsets were too uncomfortable for him and he liked the quick 
release without the tail.
Good Luck!
