    Bounced offline, esp. during DF

    This happening to anyone else? If I'm driving home after 4 am, with few riders likely, I'm likely to have a podcast on my phone, or I'll let the screen time out. In recent weeks I've been unceremoniously shoved OFFLINE when Uber was supposedly looking for matching rides. This is...

    Does Uber surreptitiously take you offline when you also have Lyft open?

    Up until this spring, I used to drive with both apps open and sharing one-half of the screen. Since then, when I keep both open, they are not minimized. While parked at normally busy times/places, with Gryft open on top of Boober, the absence of pings has caused me to check the (submerged)...

    Why can't I go online?

    I updated my insurance two days ago, it no longer says that it is pending review. I don't have any other documents up for review, but I can't get online. Is it just the system not catching up to my latest document?

    Stay offline...

    Even if its for 5 minutes after a ride. You must learn to wait.

    A Trick to make the Pax cancel the Ride!

    So late last nite I was by the Schaumburg convention center waiting for a Ping with both Lyft and Uber open in the Driver mode. As I was cruising I got a ping from Lyft for a pick up half mile away. I accept and immediately I switch to the Uber App (on the same phone) to go Offline. At that...

    It's Supply and Demand, people!

    I get that there are drivers that drive during the day and the times when there is no surge. But for the love of God, when you drive during the bar times (could apply for any time actually), leave the map up but keep yourself OFFLINE!!! I drive in the Morristown area a lot and know full well...

    I was OFFLINE but I received a ping!

    Before I go Online with Uber I always drive down to Disneyland (about 5mins drive from my place) and I just wait there until there's a surge then I go Online. But the other day while I was OFFLINE I received pings TWICE! Anybody had the same experice?

    A new means for group communication.. Kind of strike

    To help facilitate a 'go offline' period, I've set up a text group to help communications. Text TNCDGLA to 88202 Just like the Surge Pricing number this is managed my me, however using Google voice had some serious limits when sending mass text. So an upgrade was needed.

    The new feature : going offline while on trip when trip completes

    So I tried it just now. And in the end Uber fails us... the F ING app still asks if you want to go offline. $#@/!^&!*&(€*×÷!!!!! What a joke.

    App reloads if I switch apps (Android)

    When I switch apps after going online on Uber Partner, like to use Google Maps or Gmail, and return to the Uber Partner app it reloads including connecting, and often hangs on the connecting screen. I have to stop the app and restart it. Occasionally I find it has made me go offline. I often...

    i feel like a real uber victim

    I feel like a victim of uber! Does anyone else feel the same?? It all began shortly after signing up for uber about 3 months ago. I woke up one day to see a text message from uber claiming I was passing up on some ride requests and told me to check my email. "You've been online, but not...

    Time outs, stand downs, not accepting long pings ect

    Has anyone noticed Uber making drivers unavailable after ignoring a single request, cancelling a ride or simply logging off then back on within a few minutes? There is also no notice you simply stop getting requests and your icon is not on the rider app.

    Grow the Surge

    Recently I've noticed something in Downtown OKC on the weekends. Surge usually gets to around 3X-5X when the bars let out. But recently it's stayed at around 2X. Learn how to make the surge pricing go up. I flipped over to the passenger app while Downtown and saw sooooo many drivers online from...

    Automatically going offline?

    Greetings, fellow Uber people! Over the past few weeks, I've noticed at least two or three occasions when I would return to the Uber Partner app from Spotify or Google Maps only to see that somehow I was offline, despite never having pressed the "Go Offline" button and after having selected...

    Uber, Lyft: How about a curfew time setting?

    I want to go offline at 10 PM to keep the wife happy, but sometimes I forget, and the busy places have me getting piggyback pings before I make it to drop-off. Add a way to set a time to turn me offline, so I can concentrate on service, and not get more pings after that time even if I am in...

    Inconsistent heat map online vs offline

    Has anyone noticed that the heat map isn’t as active offline versus online? I will have to log into the app to see where active surges are b/c it seems viewing the heat map offline is often stale. Other times, I won’t see a heat map at all. Another way they’re discouraging us from being offline.

    WHY IS IT WE HAVE TO BE ONLINE TO SEE A MAP/SURGES???

    I'm going to toss this out there to see what you guys have to say about this... but first my opinion. Uber doesn't like it if we go online and not respond to a ping. It's inevitable, I go online to check out if there are surges on the map generally and more specifically where they're located...
