Worth a DV?

I have a collection account on my CR from Sprint that I know I paid (they made me do it before getting my current Sprint phone - yes, I'm a glutton for punishment but that's a story for another board).

Anyway, EQ is reporting it as Paid, but TU and EX still have it as Derogatory. The total amount is $121. The date opened is 12/04 and the first reported date is 3/05.

Will DV'ing and having it marked Paid do me any good? Or would I be better off trying to GW them and ask them to remove it completely?

Thanks
