    Hello, [I am not a teacher, neither an English],

    but I believe, make 'a phone call' is approaching the sense you are looking for.

    Have a nice day.

    Life is full of variety.

    The supermarket clerk rang up Mrs. Smith's purchases and told her she owed $33.

    They had already rung up the sale so I decided not to get the extra items.

    Business was bad Tuesday; we didn't ring up a sale all morning.

    ring up = 1. to add and record on a cash register; to total and record esp. by means of a cash register
    2. accomplish, achieve <They rang up many social triumphs.> <They rang up an impressive string of victories.>


    Regards,

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
