Android for Uber.
iPhone for home.

I didn't want to use my personal phone with all my contacts and other stuff.
Uber asks you if it is OK for them to browse through and sell any information they may find interesting.

I pay $35/mo to Virgin Mobile for Unlimited everything, but data is throttled to 2G after 3.2GB.
The phone was $99, but I had a $50 credit as part of a promo, so $49 for a nice phone.
I bought the LG Volt. It has a larger screen and works well with Uber and Google Maps.

I use Netflix, Hulu 2 and Nowhere Porn on Roku so I have something to keep me occupied when sitting in the middle of hundreds of other drivers wasting their time. 4G Android on a large screen phone makes for good enough teevee watching from my experience.

Depending on which version of Android your phone has, you can deny the Contacts permission so the Uber app won't be able to access it.
