Can you give details? Is Cingular or a CA reporting this collection account? How much is it? Was this a joint account?

How much money do you have on hand that can be used to pay this debt?

You do not have enough money to offer the CA a PFD (pay for delete). Paying down or PIF (paying in full) a collection will not improve your scores. I recommend you apply for a CC if the CA agrees to a PFD. Do you know your FICO scores? And which state are you in? I will try and find a CC that will likely approve you based on your location. Here's the PFD link.
