Tips for using Uber when arriving at airport in foreign country?

Does anyone have any tips for using Uber when arriving at an airport in a foreign country? How do you connect with the driver to find out where to meet? Airport pickup areas are large and busy, and it can be tough to find each other.

Also, assuming you have a U.S. phone number, the driver probably won't be able (or want to) call or text you (assuming you can even speak the same language).

i try to just watch the gps locator until they stop and then go find them (while on wifi still).

it would be nice if Uber had in-app messaging instead of relying on carrier SMS

Maybe Uber could have a VoIP feature in the app? Or have a proxy number for users out of their home market if a call is necessary.
