AccuChek Guide and mySugr Bundle!!

So I learned from a fellow Type 1 on Facebook about an awesome deal - $39.99 per month for unlimited test strips while using an AccuChek meter with the mySugr app bundle.  At first I was disappointed to see that my smartphone, a ZTE Majesty Pro, wasn't listed on their website as compatible with their app.  I contacted the mySugr support team and explained my interest and problem, and the girl answered back asking if I'd like to test out the pairing for them.  I said yes and ran out to Walgreens to buy some test strips and a Guide meter:
 After a few days (and tries!) to get them to pair and share data, I succeeded!  BOOYA! 
  I'm waiting to hear back from the support team, but I think this means I'll be able to save money on test strips now!  Whereas I was spending $50+ a month for 300 test strips at Walmart, now I'll be able to get unlimited for $40!  And it's a cool meter too, with a back light, test strip light, an A1C estimator on the app, and pattern spotting on the meter, plus a test strip eject button (haha).  Pretty spiffy!  Also, the test strip container is specially made to keep the strips from falling out when it's turned upside down.  :)  The case is a little small but I will probably transfer my Guide meter to my old case so I can keep my insulin in there like I currently do.
