After calling him, I keep having it grayed out for awhile, with no idea what drives it or what I could do to get it refreshed besides go about my business. Is there anything I can do to speed this up? There are so many fewer cribs with heli-access, it seems, in Saints Row 3.

There is a cooldown period after each call to a particular homie. It seems to me it is roughly the same period that your pay timer is on, though not synced.

I've finished the game (excluding paid DLC) and did not see any upgrade that offers a homie cooldown bonus.

I'm level 50 on Saints Row and still there are no upgrades to decrease the waiting time. Level 50 is the highest respect level you can get.

Loading a save also loads the state of your phone homies. As well, if you're playing in someone else's game, loading a save refreshes your character instead of loading a new game, so you can recharge homies nigh-instantly.
