No Call U is a song recorded on 23 July 1982 at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The song is a fast rockabilly-style song in the vein of Jack U Off and Turn It Up. It is not known, if it was intended for Prince's next album (which became 1999) or any other project. Vocals were also recorded by Vanity 6 for the track in 1982, although it was not included on any known configuration of the Vanity 6 album. In late July 1985 Jill Jones also recorded lead vocal overdubs, (probably at either Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California or Washington Avenue Warehouse in Edina, Minnesota), but the track was not included on any known configuration of the Jill Jones album.

The song with Prince's vocals was released in 2019 as the sixth track on the Vault Tracks part 2 disc of a Deluxe edition of the 1999 album.

The track is often incorrectly referred to as U Call Me.
