    ring up

    Can the preposition 'up' be left out in the following sentence?

    1. I shall ring you up tomorrow.

    2. When is the best time to ring you up?

    3. Henry rang up his doctor to find out the results.

    Ring up is a phrasal verb meaning phone or call smb.up.
    In my opinion, the best choice is ring up.

    You can also say : I shall give you a ring tomorrow.
