koska se on puhelimeni; ollessa puhelimeni


Explanation:
`Ollessa puhelimeni` is very formal Finnish. `koska se on puhelimeni` can also be translated `because it is my telephone'.
Example: It being my telephone I can use it whenever I want to.
"Koska se on (minun) puhelimeni, voin käyttää sitä milloin haluan."

(There could be a more appropriate translation depending what the whole sentence is. ; ) )
