That's all well and good but we both know texting is not a big relationship builder and It's better served for confirming times and places. With that in mind here's how to get him on the phone.
The next time he texts you, text reply:
I appreciate your texts and enjoy interacting with you however I feel I don't want to just text. What do you think?
Ideally you want to meet in person and this gives him the opportunity to come up with a plan to either meet you or call you.
Try this out. Email reply to let me know how it goes; and speaking of talking on the phone put my # 310-736-5973 in your contact list for when you have a dating/relationship question.
