    calling/phoning

    I know the following sentences are correct:

    He's meeting his friends after work.
    He's going to meet his friends after work.
    He will meet his friends after work.

    but the following sentence is not correct:

    I'm calling/phoning you after work.

    This sentence has to be:

    I'm going to call you after work.
    I'll call you after work.

    Does this mean that calling/phoning, and probably other verbs), have a specific name which explains the reason they are incorrect in this sentence.

    Any help much appreciated.
