lineage OS is the only OS that would work with signal/whatsapp/uber. It's basically degoogled android.

Choose your phone from the list of phones that they have it working on, and install lineage OS on it yourself.

Other options that can only call/text and maybe whatsapp: firefoxOS which is dead, there are no new phones coming out, purism librem 5 that isnt out yet but is really promising. Also i think there was something called sailfish os that did a croudfunding but ran away with the money (?).

In the futur we may have postmarket OS which is linux on phone, maybe they'll even get android apps working on it.

Replicant can handle Signal and Uber, its even-further-degoogled Android.

Sailfish OS is still going strong, version 3 is coming out soon. They just focused their ads in their niche homeland and maybe China.

Sailfish is partly open source and Jolla (the company building it) has the stated goal of making it completely open source, but it's not open source yet.

The saddest part of it. That interface is slick and I would like to see it in more places.
