If the way you present things is accurate - he doesn't want face-to-face visits and you don't do anything to frustrate his phone contact - then just accept that it's out of your control and this guy is not going to be a significant part of your daughter's life.
Even if he called regligiously every Monday at 7pm, she's still 3 and phone contact is simply not that meaningful - and won't be, for several years. And, at 3, NOT getting a weekly phone call at a certain time is ALSO insignificant. This is neither hurting nor benefitting her, especially if there's another man around to perform the function of "Daddy".
You cannot make your ex care enough to call. So don't waste time or emotion imagining what you could do, to effect that.
One woman in a house full of men: my soul mate:
... twin sons:
(HS seniors) ... step-son:
(a sophomore) ... our little man:
(a first grader) ... and there is another female in the house, after all
