So I started my weekend of Ubering yesterday and discovered that yes, they have officially changed the system to randomize the phone numbers to contact pax. At first, I was upset. That was lessened when all day I was receiving non-stop pings. Didn't have a chance to feel upset! Once I had a chance to take a break, I looked up solutions and I found one. Tablet Talk - $2.99 Yes it's a paid app but if you are a tablet user, it's 100% worth it! What it basically does is when you attempt to make a call with your tablet, it redirects the call to your phone via Bluetooth. This bluetooth connection does not disconnect the phone from your vehicle's bluetooth so you'll still be able to hear and speak with that bluetooth connectivity. The beautiful thing is, that you just click "Contact" then "Call". It then open ups the Tablet Talk with the number inputted. You hit "Dial" and it starts the call on your phone. It even keeps an overlay on the Tablet where you can end the call from there. You don't even have to touch your phone ever again! Your phone can stay in your pocket! Text works the exact same way, you click "Text" and it sends you to Tablet Talk. You type your message and it sends the text via the Bluetooth, and when you receive a text on your phone it shows up on your Tablet., Beautifully written software! Two things to help you with your installation that I had to learn from trial and error: Connect your devices via Bluetooth natively (through the device's Bluetooth settings). Once they've discovered each other then go into the app and attempt to connect. They'll find each other rather instantly. Some devices with data plans already allow text messaging, so when you click "Text" in the Uber app it may take you to the default Text Message App. Go into your Settings, then Apps, then the Text App. Open Default Settings and clear out any defaults. Now when you go back to the Uber App and hit "Text" it'll ask you which app you want as default, with Tablet Talk being one of the options. Now the tablet will work as if it's a phone, using your phone to actually make the call and text. It basically mirrors your phone's capabilities. The number shown and received will be your phone's number that's registered with Uber. You only have to buy the app once on one device (as long as the App Stores are linked). Once you buy it on one, go to the app store on the second (both devices need it installed) and go to your "All Apps" option, you should see it available as "Purchased".
