Billing phone conversations

I called my lawyer today because I have been waiting over a month for the legal paperwork on my case since Jan 30. He had read to me over the phone over a month ago what he had prepared for the other attorney and the courts. When I reached him today, he said that he would send the documents throgh email, which he did, but he also make a comment about the ''meter running'' referring to billing me for calling to ask where my paperwork was. Do I have to pay for all of the charges he will bill me? I feel like I was in the right calling him, but I also feel like I had to light a fire under him to do his job. Are billed hours negotiable?
