      Then how else are they to communicate with the customers?  The majority has spoken.  (see above)

        I don't know, call them on the phone? It's right there in the question!!

        Texting and driving is illegal in most states (and should be). Why does Uber even have this option?? It makes no sense. It makes the roads less safe.

    What does this question mean? How do you call or text an uber driver?

      Presumably, it's asking when the rider tries to get in touch with the driver (prior to the pickup) whether they use the text messages or phone calls.  

      Upon riders requesting a ride, they get a button in the Uber app where they can reach out to the drivers.  (e.g. to arrange pickups, etc.)

      What did you tihnk it meant?
