Google sends out Project Fi Lego kits as a holiday treat

Gift-giving is an important part of the holiday season for lots of people, and as fulfilling as that can be, gift-receiving sure is nice, too. If you were one of the early subscribers to sign up for Google’s MVNO service this year, the company might just have a special Project Fi holiday gift with your name on it, as users start seeing surprise packages land on their doorsteps.

Tucked inside, Project Fi users will find a bag of building blocks (OK, we don’t know if they’re official, capital-L Lego or just a look-alike, but we’re not splitting hairs), USB type-C cable, and a set of instructions that will lead them down the road to assembling their own little smartphone charging stand.

Will you be getting this gift, too? Well, that depends on how and when you signed up for Project Fi. Basically, if you ordered your SIM (or a phone with a SIM) on November 9 or later, or you ordered it earlier but activated by November 19, you’re covered – if you already canceled service, or if you had ordered earlier but hadn’t gotten around to activating it, you’re out of luck.

Google only just started sending these out, and notes that more are on their way in batches over the next several weeks, so you may have to sit tight for a while before yours shows up.
