I had an appointment yesterday with my local Tandem rep, and I brought this up. She assured me that there is no way to disable the 1-2-3, and no doubt the people in the video pressed it without me noticing (or the screen was already live). She said all previous versions of the pump had it as well.
Dave: That makes perfect sense. It’s something I’ll eventually get used to, I guess.
Willow: Please elaborate. What fear did you have, and what allayed it?
Dylan: Yes, I’ve learned about quick bolus. And I know someone who does it without even taking the pump out of his pocket! Yikes!
meee: I’ve read several stories online of how people got used to pressing the buttons. There’s no question that I’ll be going through a learning curve. I assume it will take me a while (coming from a button-press pump), but I’ll learn it eventually.
Thanks for all your input, everyone!
