Hi.

Let's say I have 100 people in my contacts while my friend has 200 in his phone. I wonder if I can say to him "You have two times contacts than mine".

I wonder if the bold is natural.

    It is completely unnatural, and almost unintelligible. What you want to say is "You have twice as many contacts as I do."
    Agreed. Or, twice the number of contacts that I have.

    Thanks a lot, GWB. But I asked a question about "contacts" last night and I was told that it basically means "contact list", the address book in one's phone. Do I need to change "contacts" in these new suggestions?
