Idiom Prepositions

'To phone someone' is synonymous with 'to call someone up'! Good job!
=> I'm going, but call me up later if you want to do something together!

Many of you said 'to call on', which does also exist but has a completely different meaning (to call on someone: to visit someone//to ask for an answer):
=> They called on us last night, but we were out at the movies. (They visited/came to see us)
=> The professor called on me for a particularly tough math problem, and I couldn't give the right answer.

It was to 'check something/someone out' (to look at something /someone intently). It is a phrase often heard in informal English: 
=> "Oh wow, a Corvette! Check it out, it's a beautiful car."
=> "I know the homework answers have been posted online, but I'll check them out later."

'To check in' is used for hotels/motels, to say that you put your name on the register and get your room key. It is also used on Facebook as well, to say that you are at a specific location and make it know to your friends:
=> "I've already checked in the hotel I'm staying at tonight."
=> E.T. checked in Washington DC (Places on Facebook)

A 'check up' is 'a revision', it's a noun or a verb used in the passive:
-> My car is in need of a check up!
-> I need to have my car checked up!
This one was a little test to see if your English is more British or more American :) Indeed, both 'fill in' and 'fill out' can be used when expressing 'writing information in predetermined spaces'. However,
a) To fill IN a form is British English
b) To fill OUT a form is American English

To 'fill up' also exists, but it means 'to fill something with something else'
=> I filled up my car this morning, because I had no more gas.
=> I fill up the water jug when it's empty.
