"Hij belt mij." and "Hij belt mij op" are both correct here. In what context the usage of the two verbs "bellen" and "opbellen" would be different?

"Bellen" can be used in the exact same way as "opbellen", "aanbellen" (wich has the 'bellen' part in common) is ringing the door.

"Hij roept mij" should also be correct since "calls" could be construed as "calling on the telephone" or "calling someone's name".
