'Zijn vriendin' only means 'his girlfriend' (like 'mijn man' would be 'my husband'). If you want to say 'his friend', the sentence would be 'Iedere dag wordt hij gebeld door een vriendin (van hem)'.

It can be a bit confusing; but it is an idiom. :)

Could this also be 'Iedere dag hij is gebeld bij zijn vriendin' ?
