I just paid off my past due phone bill of my collections. How long does it take to get it removed?

Paying a collections does not mean that it will be removed from your credit report. You got to negotiate a pay for delete agreement. Legally a collections company has the right to leave a collections item on your credit for 7 years.  If you paid it; it will be udated to paid as agreed or paid in full.  Either way you can expect your credit report to be updated within 30 days.
