What’s the opposite of busy? So, the situation is the following: my girlfriend says she will be busy for some time. So I want to say: "message me when you get free/become unbusy/get unoccupied, please" What’s the right and natural way to say it? All of these variants sound a bit strange, though I am used to saying "when you get free".

I am a Native English speaker and "when you're free" is exactly what I would say. "When things slow down" is another alternative that I would use. Some opposites (antonyms) of busy are; "Idle" (Does not work for this one) "inactive" (Does not work for this one) "Unoccupied" (Works, but not natural) Antonyms are words that are complete/total opposites of other words.

Message me when you can. Message me when you are able. Message me when you are free. Message me when you have time.
