    Re: Give me a call/call me when you get up.

    Why would you need a longer list than that?

    Why?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This one's wrong. It should be, 'Phone/call me once you've got up'.
    Otherwise, the list is fine.

    Re: Give me a call/call me when you get up.

    'Phone/call/ring me as soon as you get up/wake up.'
    Can it be added onto the list?
    Not a teacher.

    Yes, it can, Matthew.

    Odessa Dawn, you can double the list by adding 'please' to each one.

    Re: Give me a call/call me when you get up.

    Would only few people say 'telephone me'?

    Re: Give me a call/call me when you get up.

    I wouldn't say "telephone me". It's not grammatically incorrect but it sounds very formal, even for formal situations. I would use "Ring me" as my first preference, then "Phone me" and "Call me". I would also use "Give me a ring".
