    Which is correct ?

    Iíve left VM for Stewart. I will join the bridge after Iíve made some calls to T-Systems.


    Now my question is

    1) I've left VM for/to Stewart.


    2) I will join the bridge after I've make/made some calls to T-systems.


    Can someonen please explain which of the above is correct?

    When and where to use to and for is confusing to me.

    Thanks,
    Adarsh

    Now my question is

    1) I've left VM for/to Stewart. It depends on context.


    2) I will join the bridge after I've make/made some calls to T-systems. "I've made" or "I make".

    VM - Voice mail.


    Context- We have an issue with our servers. The bridge is to discuss the issue.

    Re: Which is correct ?

    So, is this correct?

    I have left a voicemail message for Stewart (who is a person). I will join the video-conference after I have made some calls to T-Systems.
