    Can't you call before you come? AND
    Can't you call before you stop by?
    are both correct. As xarmanla says, in this day, they might send text messages instead of calling. However, I'm old-fashioned and call, so call me before you come.
    Also, "Can you not" is correct grammatically, but it's an old form and not used anymore.
