How long does it take for the IMEI status checker to update?


    I recently paid off my device on EIP and would like to sell the phone on SWAPPA.  Part of their Swappa's verification process involves checking the IMEI on the Tmobile IMEI Status Checker webpage. 


    Unfortunately the IMEI for the device that I just paid off still shows as:

    This device has an outstanding balance that must be paid or it may not be able to be used on T-Mobile network.
    For more information or assistance, please call Customer Care at 1-844-418-0395

    Does anyone know how long it takes for this database to update and reflect the fact that the device has been paid off?
