If you have signs of poor connectivity

Connectivity can be challenging because each cellular network has different service areas in San Antonio. Here are some common symptoms of poor connectivity on your device:

  • Trouble requesting a ride or logging into the app

  • The app doesn't respond when using

  • Unable to accept ride requests

  • Can't start or end a ride

  • A text message or pop-up notification about issues with connectivity or device reaching servers


Phone setting tips to improve connectivity

Sometimes the default phone settings and the phone plan may cause connectivity issues. See below for settings changes you can make for better connectivity to the Leep app:

For All Carriers:

These steps will solve most device connectivity issues:

  • Update your phone's software and settings: During your downtime, update your device's software and settings. It can prevent future app issues. 

  • Close any unnecessary apps: When using the Leep app, try not to have other apps on in the background (if you can). The Leep Platform relies on data; having multiple apps using the same data may impact the connectivity of the Leep app. Toggle airplane mode on and off: If you're having connectivity issues or the app freezes, toggle airplane mode on for 10 seconds, then off. It will refresh your connection to your service provider's network.

  • Move locations: You may be in an area that your carrier doesn't provide service in or an area with a weak connection.

  • Restart your device: Switching your phone off and on again will reset it. Resetting your phone often resolves small glitches.

    • Heads up: Don't do this if you're in the San Antonio airport queue, as you may lose your spot in the line.

  • Delete the Leep Driver app and download it again: If there are bugs in that particular app version, deleting the app and re-downloading it may resolve the issue. Additionally, turning off your phone before reinstalling the app ensures a clean start.

  • Turn Wi-Fi on, but do not connect to any network: This can help with GPS accuracy.

    • If you're automatically connected to a network, turn your Wi-Fi off.

    • If your phone continues to connect to nearby networks automatically, change your 'Wi-Fi Calling' preferences to 'Cellular Preferred' or 'Cellular Only' to prevent signal interruptions.

  • Set background app refresh to Wi-Fi only: Apps that run in the background may slow your phone down by using too much cellular data bandwidth. Follow these steps to make sure apps are only running in the background when you're on Wi-Fi:

    • For iOS (Apple):

      1. Go to 'Settings'

      2. Tap 'General'

      3. Tap' Background App Refresh'

      4. Set to 'Wi-Fi only.'

    • For Android:

      1. Go to 'Settings'

      2. Tap' Data Usage'

      3. From the Mobile section, tap 'Mobile Data Usage.'

      4. Select an app from below the usage graph (we recommend starting with apps that use the most data)

      5. Turn off 'Allow background data usage.'

By Carrier

If you experience frequent connectivity issues, your cell provider or plan may not allow enough data access for you to use the app smoothly. Reach out to your service provider if you think if you have insufficient data.
