SFOS in the USA?

Hello! I've been following Sailfish since the first Jolla Phone came out, and have been overjoyed about how Sailfish has grown over the years. However, since then, I have been waiting for a phone that will work in the US. Very patiently... I'm wondering why there's STILL nothing available yet.

And I don't mean 3G support for a few frequencies. I believe that ALL of the following bands would be required:

3G: 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 10

4G LTE: 2, 4, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 41

These are the bands I'd say would be required for the phone. This includes AT&T and T-Mobile's bands (which are usually the only ones supported) as well as the critical Verizon bands that are ignored by most manufacturers, despite Verizon being the US's largest service provider. It also includes Sprint's bands which I didn't really want to include as they are not used by anyone else. These were all found from this site.

On a related note: Why not just swap out the antenna for the Jolla C? I'd be willing to buy it despite it's lower specs if it was actually able to work here. I, surely like many of my fellow Americans, desperately want to use Sailfish, but simply don't have the money to blow on a phone that we can't even use.

Thank you for any thoughts you have. If I left any details out, please let me know. Thanks!
