Can't cancel payment when someone snipes your can
The cancel button shown on the screenshot above does not exist. This is important to note, because curb doesn't give the driver the exact address you put in. If you don't watch for them to stop on the app screen, they'll stop half a block away. And someone else will jump in. Because the drivers never, ever ask for your name, or to look at your screen, they have no way of knowing that the person who jumped in the cab isn't you. And the rider who jumps in, doesn't know either. However, the meter starts ticking on your app. And because there is no cancel button, you can't do a thing about it. All you can do is watch on the map as the taxi you called drives away from you. And you hope for the best, that it won't cost you millions of dollars. Meanwhile, you can't call another cab, and even if you hail one, you can't check into the app to pay for it. Your credit card company may or may not refund you the money. If you use Curb often, they might claim that there's no way to know for certain that this purchase wasn't made by you. Or they might tell you that since you were the one who approved it in the app when you call the cab, you're responsible to pay. Way2ride has a cancel button. Just for future reference.
Charges you even when it can't provide a ride
I recently tried to hail a cab with this app and was told that no cabs were available (but Way2Ride had no issue finding me a cab second later). Yet this morning, my bank notified me that Curb had put a $20 dollar hold charge on my credit card without my knowledge. When you can't provide me with a ride, don't charge my card Curb. No longer willing to use this app given it's shady billing practices.
I signed up for this app with my current mobile number and my old work email. I can't remember my password so when I try to reset it requires me to enter my mobile and email. The app presumably sends my reset instructions to my old email. It won't allow me to set up a new account with my current phone number as it's previously registered. Guess I'll just take an Uber then.
