I was just wondering what cgm is the best and do I really need a IPhone to use it, or can I use it without one, or have the info go to a family members phone and not mine as I have a HTC desire.

They do have a separate receiver for the G5 that you can purchase as far as dexcom. I really like dexcom. There is a share app but the Bluetooth capability is limited to a device that is close to you.

I have had both the Dexcom g4 and g5. I started using the g5 with Bluetooth when it came out. It is a great cgm and I love how it can share my glucose levels with my family. As a teenager though I always have my Iphone with me. I'm sure you can use the g5 with the separate reciever, but you will sacrifice the ability to share your glucose numbers with family.
