    call again

    Hi,

    http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...tish/call-back

    call back [INTRANSITIVE/TRANSITIVE]: call someone back to telephone someone again, or to telephone someone who telephoned you earlier.

    - I’ll call you back when I’ve heard something.

    I can't distinguish the difference betwen 'call again' and 'call back'. Can we use them interchangeably?

    - I’ll call you again when I’ve heard something.

    Thank you.
