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.
