    Usually, one would say "Call me when you get home".

    Re: Confused!

    Hello.

    While I was reading the first post I thought of "Call me when you come home". Does it sound natural?

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not natural for me.

    Welcome to the forum, Darya. Please note my corrections to your post.

    Note also that 'true' does not mean 'grammatically correct'.

    If you want her to let you know when she leaves, say "Call me when you leave for home".

    Get home is the standard form. Your version doesn't sound natural in BrE either.
