  1. #1 is adequate, but 2 and 3 are incomplete. You don't state whom each person is going to meet.

    These are complete:

    Tell me when to meet you.
    Tell me when I should meet you.
    Tell me when you will meet me.

    #s 4-6
    All three of these sentences mean approximately the same thing.
