    Cool get + preposition

    Hi,

    Are the following prepositions correct? If not, can you correct it, please?

    The police finally got to the truth about the murder.
    It took forever to get through the flu.
    I can't get through how much your children have grown.
    He got up to 300 pounds before he went on a diet.
    I couldn't get on to Joe. his phone was busy.
    You can always get into the rules if you have a good lawyer.
