3. Do the probes come apart in order to go through a probe port?
4. Does the system work with Android phones?

If there is any thing else you can tell me that might be helpful in my decision please let me know.

Thanks all
1) I love my Fireboard. Its the best thermometer system that I've purchased. It can also be used with a Guru fan (with the Drive accessory). The company also stands behind their product & they are very responsive to any questions/issues that you may have.

2) I highly recommend the case. I accidentally left mine outside and it got drenched by sprinklers which left it inoperable. Fireboard sold me a replacement without the probes for $157. It was an expensive lesson but well worth it to get a replacement unit.

3) No

4) I'm not an android user.... I believe they work with them but I'm not 100% certain.

I know you already decided to get one but allow me to add some more praise to this thread. Got mine a little over a year ago and have done plenty of cooks with it and never had any issues. I don't have a case for it but haven't had any problems with it.
