Along with this, information about the availability of the phone also escapes. It will initially be available only through a system of invitations and recommendations. This is somewhat paradoxical given that the warehouses are slowly filling up, but it will probably be part of a marketing campaign that is constantly trying to give the impression that it will be an exceptional device.
Sounds like Nothing is skipping the US with respect to Phone (1) availability and network compatibility. Disappointing, but understandable. Hard for young brands to achieve carrier adoption here, and without those deals, not really worth negotiating retail channels at all…

According to the well-known leaker Evan Blasse, there are no American or Canadian providers on the list of supported operators. If you still decide to use your phone in its networks, it may not work well. It will have “unpredictable” coverage in the T-Mobile network, it will not have voice services over 4G in the AT&T network and it will not work at all in Verizon. In its opinion for pcmag.com, the company stated: “While we would like to bring the phone to a community around the world, we focus on domestic markets, including the UK and Europe, where we have strong partnerships with leading local operators. As is well known, bringing a smartphone to market requires a lot of things, from securing mobile technology support in a given country to partnering with operators and local regulation, and because we are still a young brand, we need to take a strategic approach.“

It can be read between the lines that the company was unable to agree on the approval of the phone by American operators. Or she could not afford their costly approval processes. But the problem is said to be solvable. Closed beta testing is about to start, where fans can sign up. Others can get involved by asking their operator.
