A Suggestion


Five letters were sent respectively to Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, and LG, asking them to include a list of musicians most likely to occur in text messages, but had not yet been included in the Predictive Text (T9) word list.

The list consisted of the bestselling musicians of all time, and the most downloaded musicians within the last ten years. The names in the brackets are the predictions made by the Predictive Text function.
