    Re: Give me a buzz

    Yes, it means "Give me a call on the phone" or, more naturally, "Phone me". It goes back to the days when an incoming call was marked by a buzzing sound - see the final sentence HERE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    These days, it usually refers to the call, not the sound.
