Thinking of buying a phone while in America since technology prices are cheaper here. Will it work straight away, after some fiddling, or just not at all under any circumstances.

I would also add that whilst the major manufacturers sell generic phones online in Australia, even though they are meant for Australia, occasionally there may be a software glitch.
That's why the networks here often have the manufacturers do some software changes, just for their network, to cover any issues.
For overseas phones, there is a much higher risk of software issues, and there is no official support or warranty.
In my opinion, it's false economy, and you would be far better to buy your phone not only locally, but preferably from the actual network.
