| "call someone up" = telephone someone
"Hey, call me up if you want to get together."
"I'll call on you tomorrow around noon."
There are many types of phone services today to choose from, including cellular, satellite, and even voice over IP phone services, and to make such calls, many phone cards are available. However, no matter what service you use, learning how to leave and understand phone messages is important. What questions or requests might you hear in a telephone message (e.g., "Please call me tomorrow.")
Bill: Hey, this is Bill. I'm sorry I'm not in. Just leave a message.
Hey Bill. This is Hank. I'm just calling to let you know that I'll be a little late to the game tomorrow night. I have to work a few extra hours to finish a report. I should wrap things up sometime between seven and eight though. Oh, then I'm planning on dropping by Lisa's house for about an hour since she's been sick recently. And, uh, one more thing. I'll swing by my house to pick up some food for the game. See you then.
