How To Order Uber By Text?
Rider Question: ☀How To Order Uber By Text? Explained here today!☀
At one point, Uber basically did a beta testing where riders could request a ride via text messaging.
Uber removed the SMS request option because they wanted to continue providing the most reliable and streamlined service. Sadly, text messaging just didn’t make the cut.
Nonetheless, you can still request via an iPhone, Android, and Blackberry apps. You can also request by going to m.uber.com in your mobile browser from almost any device that has an internet connection. People use this mobile site to request their Uber from a table or laptop too.
Here’s some other things to know and consider:
°Make sure you get a fare estimate prior to requesting your Uber

°Enter your destination in the app beforehand so the driver can know where you are going
