I don't know of any Sailfish for US phones. There was a discussion regarding
Sailfish X (Sony Xperia X) - you better check on together.jolla.com.
Better look for people reporting from US. AFAIR they recommended buying and
shipping it from EU and reported that it works.

A friend is using Xperia X as primary phone and is happy - in fact I use it
in free time as well, but because of the bluetooth with the car audio issue
and syncing contacts etc. I prefer the still working N9.

As for flashing there are also instructions how to backup DRM keys in case
you want to go back.

IMO it is worth trying it as an alternative to Google and Apple. IMO it is
the only one alternative at a comfortable price.

This is why I argue to try it on any mobile device if hardware is supported
by the kernel.
