Knox didn't call Filomena first. She called Meredith's mobile first, then Filomena. When Filomena asked her about calling Meredith's mobile, Knox didn't tell her that she had called Meredith's mobile literally seconds earlier.
In her e-mail to friends on 4 November 2007, Knox falsely claimed that she had called Filomena first, then Meredith.
Knox is obviously very touchy on the issue of that 12.07 call, lasting 16 seconds, to Meredith's english phone. In her own mind she is well aware of how incriminating it is in the context of the other calls. Not only does she not mention it in her book but she does an additional cover up job as well. She writes that the first of the 3 and 4 second calls was to Meredith's English phone and that she received a message that the phone was out of order. Well, the first of those two brief calls was in fact to Meredith's Italian phone. So why turn it round? I think Amanda writes this to emphasize her close friendship with Meredith and perhaps it's also a mental slip, or given her knowledge of the original call, some sort of delicious "one-over" on the ignorant reader - and was the English phone out of order when just 4 minutes before it was engaged for, or just ringing out for, 16 seconds? Remember that in the case of a call to a foreign number, such as to Meredith's English phone, a record is generated even if the call does not connect. Even if the phone wasn't just ringing for 16 seconds, does anyone listen for 16 seconds if told the phone is out of order?
I have to say, though, I am not entirely sure why she chose to ring Meredith's English phone at 12.07. Was that simply a case of "So what. It doesn't matter"? Or was there some sort of inner personal connection she was making with her victim which was gratifying her?
