Just going to reaffirm that this update is OTA(Over the Air) only.
To check if it's available:
Settings > About Phone > Software Updates > Check now
Before you do this ensure you have a full battery, and preferably connected to WiFi. You can download via a mobile connection, but it will use part of your data allowance in doing so.
I have already successfully downloaded this update to my Sensation, but in most cases the rollout of the update will be staggered, so do not be too alarmed if the update is not yet available for you.
Let me know if you've any further questions.

I know this update is going to be staggered. However, it's been about 10 days now and i've still not seen the update.
Are there any estimates of the time period that the roll out is due to take?
I'm just worried it isn't going to turn up and i'm very curious if this is going to solve the random errors i've had since getting the phone on release day.
My phone is currently running software version 126.96.36.199.

There's your problem, you're 3 versions too low to get the OTA.
OTA updates require a certain version to be present to update. In the case of the new 188.8.131.52 you HAVE to be running 184.108.40.206
The ONLY way you're going to get the update is to first flash the 220.127.116.11 RUU (the full ROM, which WILL reset your phone to out-the-box so you will lose your current data unless you back up) and then get the OTA updates in order.
Here's a link to the RUU:

Hi. Thanks for the info and the link. It's really appreciated.
Is this the official upgrade path - ie. Will this void my warranty etc? Or is this the approved vodafone update? Is this what Vodafone are telling people to do?
Does anyone know why the software version that shipped with my phone when I got it on the day of release (preorder) was not OTA capable? Was an OTA never released for the software version on my phone (see 2 posts above).
Sorry for all the questions i'm just trying to understand whats happening etc.
