From Sprint/T-Mobile to the iWatch: The wireless rumors most likely to become reality

The wireless industry is often awash in rumors. Today, those rumors range from a possible merger between Sprint and T-Mobile to a possible iWatch from Apple.

But, with all the noise in the industry, it's often difficult to track the source and evolution of these rumors. More importantly, it's also difficult to evaluate the likelihood of these rumors becoming reality.

Thus, FierceWireless has taken a look back at the recent spate of rumors to assess the evidence and determine how likely it is that the rumor will turn into a reality. We'll also assign a "star ranking" for each one on a scale of 1 to 5. The more stars, the more likely it is that the rumor will come to pass.
