    Will is an idea, or a response.

    "I know what to do! I will buy a new camera!" idea
    "The phones ringing, I will answer it!" response


    Going to is a plan or you have evidence

    "I have asked for time off work because I am going to Phuket" plan
    "Look at the clouds. I think it is going to rain." evidence
