In a good relationship, you communicate what you need and you compromise.
Why not talk to this guy about your frustration? Let him know how to make you happy, and that for you communication by text is important. He probably doesn't know how you feel. Posting your frustrations here doesn't help (unless he happens to be reading what you wrote).
When you talk to him, make sure that you can compromise. This is your issue, not his... don't blame for doing something that many people wouldn't mind.
But you can say "I really like receiving texts from you, it makes me feel wanted" (or whatever you feel). Positive feedback (saying "thank you" when he does something right) is always better than negative feedback (complaining when he doesn't do what you like).
I think you would be foolish to make this a big issue if the rest of the relationship is good. But there is nothing wrong with communicating with a lover about what makes you feel special.
Make sure you are listening to what he wants as well.
