Rappeler.. remind or call back?

Il devait me rappeler, mais il a oublié ! He was supposed to call me back, but he forgot! 

Now how would you say.. he was supposed to remind me?

Hi Mark, 

Good question -

Here rappeler means only to call (ring) back 

to say 'to remind'

you would have to say -

Il devait me le rappeler mais il a oublié

expressing to remind someone of something, the 'le' acting as something.

Hope this helps!
