I don't like it because it comes off as needy and whiny. It also introduces a negative "never" and points a finger of blame by saying "you". Neither of those are very comforting to a significant other, and all it does is make them feel obligated to call, taking away spontaneity from them and can make them reluctant to do it at all. It's common for someone you love to get defensive, which inspires the excuses that are often used to respond.
Discussions in relationships are much better served when it's in private and when neither of you are angry or uptight about something. Adding positive words instead of negative ones are also helpful at getting your partner to listen without feeling like he/she is being blamed. For example, you could approach him with "You know I really care about you and enjoy talking with you so much, I wanted you to know you are always welcome to call me whenever you would like." You could add to it with something like "With you being so busy, I figured it might be a good idea you knew I was available whenever you were free to talk."
The above lets him know you're interested in him calling without putting pressure on him that might make him annoyed. Hopefully he will respond with more than "I know." before walking off, but at least you're giving him the hint that you also have a telephone you can answer just like he does.1
