Stopped Driving Dec 10th

I took the holiday season off and did my first Uber anything today, which was an Uber Eats, earn at least $9, pickup was 1/2 mile.. after starting delivery phone service went crazy and Uber was frozen. I recently did the Verizon to Sprint change and regret it all around. So, I turned my phone off and just drove home without thinking twice. Midway through my free lunch, turned my phone back on, Uber came up unfrozen, delivery still active and I cancelled. Phone was off for like 40 minutes. Received a cancellation fee, too, which I guess Uber really wasn't Active after turning my phone back on.

Also, hit Diamond just to see if I could, but could carry less. Was doing the DiamondBlue dance with back and forth 10% cancel rate...anyway, I know cancellations drop off after 30 days, but uber just reset me and I'm Diamond again after 40+ days of inactivity..maybe just needed to perform an actual Ride or Delivery to get it to register.

Anyway, time away from Uber has been great..Feel great, lost 6 lbs, happier and all that. Probably done except for Special Events.

Good luck

I’m diamond but there’s no way I’m gonna keep it after January 31st. I don’t drive enough to get all the points since I took about a month off same time you did. There’s not gonna be many special events for months so it gonna have to be anting hard to pay off the holiday bills.

I'm done. Maybe I'll do just uber Eats and have a free meal now and then. Lol.
