"打电话[给]朋友" is a complete sentence. It means "make a phone call [to] a friend" (打电话 is the only verb needed).
"打电话[和]朋友"(make a phone call [with] a friend) is an incomplete sentence. You need a second verb 'talk' here --> "打电话和[和]朋友通話" = "make a phone call and talk [with] a friend"
talk = 通話/ 交談
和朋友们说再见 = 跟朋友们说再见
