I have a UK HTC Magic which is from Vodafone - I am in France for the time being and don't have the Vodafone SIM in. The phone is on the internet via wifi a lot.

Do I need to have Vodafone's sim in the phone in order to receive the Froyo OTA update that was announced today?

No, you don't. The updates are received from the Servers of the Provider/Manufacturer. This adress is saved in the ROM. So you just need an internet connection via 3g or wifi.
