ma soeur est constamment au téléphone/ma soeur est constamment en ligne


Explanation:
Ma soeur est constamment en ligne is typically something you might say when you don't live with her and try calling her and she is on the phone so the phone is...busy

and if you feel lyrically inclined and want to make a statement:

"ma soeur passe sa vie au téléphone"
