How can I get a loaner phone? My Iphone got wet and is in a bag of rice at the moment :( I have no landline to make calls so would like to look into getting another phone in case mine won't turn back on. How much does it cost to get one?

Once you phone is sent for repairs, the opportunity of a loaner phone is offered to you, subject to availability. You would need to do this through a physical location, usually.

Take it to the Jump+ store. There is one in the Champlain mall. They are the closest thing to an Apple store you can get and can help you out with your repairs.

In the wash?  That's usually terminal, due to the laundry detergent, and the thorough agitation.

I had a 3Gs go for a swim, and the rice bag worked for me, but it was a dip of only a few seconds.

I actually don't use detergent I use crystal wash which are like these weird balls that clean your laundry so hopefully that means it will work again :)
