We’ve had Uber in my town only a couple months, and I started driving right away. Those two months I’ve flown through my data allowance on AT&T. Have you found that the Uber app has quite an appetite for data?
No, it’s something else on your phone. Uber and GPS both use minimal data.
That depends on your definition of “quite an appetite” really. We were on a 12 GB plan when I first started Uber and ended up bumping up to a 24GB plan. We usually have at least 6 GB of rollover data though, but I’m only driving part time now. It has a lot to do with how much you’re driving.
By far, Facebook is the biggest consumer of data on my phone.
I suggest checking your data usage for individual apps. You probably have another rogue app that is hogging data. It’s not Uber.
I use about 2gb of data on uber a month. But my usage increase as I drive due to Facebook, selfies, pornhub, and tinder.
I have the same issue, when driving rideshare full time I use my 3gb limit in less than a month, had to bump up to 6 gb plan. I don’t use other apps on cellular service (or at least try to minimize the usage) and still to seem lose a lot of data
That’s why you get an unlimited plan
I’ve got an unlimited plan through t mobile
I switched to Walmart Family Mobile.
I’m At&t too. Mine goes out the roof when I use pandora! They say I use the equivalent of a family of 8.
Straight talk at Walmart, $55 gives you unlimited 4g
I have a Verizon 4GB per month plan and I have left over data each month, I run Uber & Lyft with Waze, messenger and a few phone calls and have never used all my data. Gotten close a couple times, but never over…
If you use Google maps with satellite imagery, you’ll suck down the data pretty fast.
Something else to watch for is in a year there will be so many drivers that you will find it difficult to make squat. Depends on how large your city is though
I do metro pcs unlimited data workd better than my att phone did
You need to have unlimited data, when driving for Uber or Lyft.
Unlimited plan is the only way to go when doing this type of job
