What is the data type of contactsFromDb? Regardless, I do not think you will gain anything by converting this to LINQ expression. This is actually better in terms of readability IMHO.

as you said LINQ may not help for performance but i would still like to make a try with LinQ just to see how it behaves with LINQ , it would be great if you can help. thanks
