The best way to retrieve a lost item is to call the driver – but if you leave your phone itself in an Uber, you can login to your account on a computer. Tap “Your Trips” and select the trip where you went something; tap “I lost. Log in,” Tap “Contact driver about a lost item,” Scroll down and enter the phone number you would like to be contacted at. Tap submit.
And in case of the loss of a personal phone, enter a friend’s phone number (you can do this by logging into your account on a computer or using a friend’s phone)., The phone will ring and connect you directly with your driver’s mobile number. If the driver picks up and confirms that the item has been found, coordinate a mutually convenient time and place to meet for its return to you. And if the driver doesn’t pick up, leave a detailed voicemail describing your item and the best way to contact you.
