    pop on the screen

    "When the planeI was flying on touched the ground, a reminder popped up on the screen of my cell phone saying that I had to check back in with my mom, since she had asked me to call her back as soon as I got off the plane." OK?

    We don't need the first two commas; (that) I was flying on is a defining relative clause.

    "Check back back in" would have the same meaning as "call back"?
