Ever since summer started, it seems demand has dropped. I've been in tenlytown, wiscon ave and no pings in almost an hour now(7-8 pm Friday night).

I am platinum status but when I signed with Uber in feb 2015, it seems demand was constant anytime...

Same here sitting in middle of Clarendon and nothing. 1 more hour for two rides. I'm platinum but incentives are useless if we can't complete them.

Check Pax App to see if your car is showing online on the blue dot where you're sitting. If it's not, it means you have been sidelined by Uber and has nothing to do with your phone or network you're using.
Driver's App. can show you online when in fact you're not.

I was checking the pax app I didn't see my car a few times but some other times I did see it there I'm guessing it's just too many drivers out here

Yup I'm platinum hourly too. I get pings from outside the reward zone no prob. Sometimes from one street outside...doh. Inside nothing unless it's rush hour or high demand. Last sunday I was parked outside a house and the homeowner there tried to request me on uber x. I was clearly the closest by a couple of blocks. Instead it kept going to a guy 5 minutes away.

It's just the Game they play, uber just wants the presence of cars on the roads chasing phantom incentives...since being on platinum hourly,the pings have been nothing but rejects.Since I don't do pool,I've noticed pings from much further away. It's becoming frustrating and I thinks that what they want.

Everyone needs to start emailing them so they know we're not ****ing stupid. Hourly drivers are forced to stay on to complete the required trips towards the end. ****ing bastards.
