    I'll call you and I'll use the phone in my office for this

    I'll call you and I'll use the phone in my office for this.

    How I can say this without "and"?

    I mean I want something like this "I'll call you on the phone in my office", but it is definitely a mistake.

    Why? You can say "from the phone" in my office if you want, but it's not uncommon to say you'll call someone on the phone.

    I'll call you from my office phone.

    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.
