    Just got off the phone with

    Just got off the phone with your father.

    Just got off the phone of your father.

    Just got a call from your father.

    Are all these sentences OK and do these convey the same message?

    Re: Just got off the phone with

    The second is incorrect.

    The first focuses on the end of the phone call.
    The third focuses on your getting the phone call.

    Re: Just got off the phone with

    Just got off the phone with your father.

    Is there any chance to use any other preposition instead of "with"

    If I had initiated the call, I could use 'to'.
