Why not: they had previously called?

That sentence is just slightly awkward in English.

Could this also be "They had rung earlier?"

Yes it could. Both on the phone and with a bell

Can I use før instead of tidligere here?

Why is this not "ringet til"? I thought these words always went together.

An example in the same module: I had called his father > jeg havde ringet til hans far.
