Can the driver complete and end the ride if he has no cell phone signal?

My house is in a deadzone and some cell phone carriers have difficult time connecting.  I just had a driver who complained and told me he couldn't end the trip.  Is that really how it works?  How can this be?

      Don't lie.  we all know you've complained about low signal.  We all have and we always will.

      plus there are deadpots everywhere.

    That's a great tip for the rider to cancel it.  Assuming the rider has Internet.
