Was curious how long does it usually take Sprint to unlock an iPhone if asked and you meet the requirements? Is it almost an instant type thing?

Takes a few hours, although they may tell you 24-48.

Someone here persisted at one point though and managed to force them to unlock his phone within a couple of hours of paying it off.

The problem isn't the actual unlock process - it's getting Sprint to actually submit the unlock request to Apple.

Just paid them off. They said to call back in 48-72 hours. Going to call again here in a few hours and ask again.
