Whenever their RDCs schedule phone time. Always be prepared to take a call. Usually you can count on 3 calls: The quick scripted "I arrived" call, a longer call at around the third week and the long "I'm a Sailor" call after Battle Stations 21. A brief call for information regarding a security clearance is possible. Any other calls are a gift from the RDCs for good behavior.
