    Default Is it okay if I called you?

    "Is it okay if I called you?"

    Is the above sentence correct? Shouldn't I change "called" to "call" in the sentence?

    Maybe what you should change is "is" into "would be". That way, I guess your problem could be solved. Therefore the sentence will be;

    Would it be okay if I called you?

    Euncu has given you a good answer, giddyman, but it's also fine to say 'Is it OK if I call you?'
