So as usual I have to call Edgepark, and usual it takes 3 transfers. Yesterday it took me 48 minutes to get a new set of sensors, as well as two new transmitters.
Out of all of that time - almost 1/2 of it was them trying to push the new G6 on me. I kept telling her “No thanks” . Push, push, push, push - I finally had to raise my voice and tell her - “look - Send me my G5 supplies - I do NOT want the G6” . She got quiet, and then went all “robot” on me and sent them out.
During the conversation she said they want all G4/G5 products off the market as soon as possible, because the G6 is so far superior. I said - “Superior how? Superior because it literally stops at 10 days so we have no choice but to use a new sensor? Superior because you will be able to get more in the field because they can’t be restarted? Superior because it still uses the G5 receiver with a firmware update? Superior to your profits?” She was not happy at all! I actually got a kick out of it. They can take their greed and shove it - I will stay on the G5 as long as Dexcom keeps making them!
