I would advise not burning the proverbial bridge. I drive a little more than is necessary to stay in the game, but my UberX driving is still limited. I would follow the advice that others have given here. Run a trip or two every so often. If you must go out for a quart of milk and a loaf of bread, give yourself a little extra time, turn on the Uberfone and take a ping or two. If you have Uber's telephone, I would send it back and download the driver application to my own telephone. That way you need not pay Uber "rent" on its telephone.
