if / when I have time........
1. She will call you if I have time.
2. She will call you when I have time.
What are the differences between the above sentences?
May I try:
#2 is more certain that I will call rightaway as I have time.
#1 the possibility of calliing back is very low even she's free.
Re: if / when I have time........
Firstly, I don't understand why "she" will call you when "I" have time. Surely she will call when/if she has time.

Sentence 2 means that she will call but it's not certain what time she will call. She will call at some point during the day but only when she has enough time to make the call.
