I've lost my iPhone, now what?

My husband and I were at a party last night, I was using it there. It was low on juice, but figured it would be ok until the morning. When we came home from the party, I stayed up for a little bit on the conch while he went to bed. He left for work early, while I slept off the party, due to being extremely tired.
When I woke up I looked for my phone, but couldn't find it. Find My iPhone said it was offline, so it sounds like the battery ran out of juice in the middle of the night. Friends who were hosting the party didn't find the phone and we've torn apart the car and house looking for it, with no success
What do we do now? We have insurance on the phone through AT&T, which claims to replace it if lost. Has anyone had to go through this with AT&T, do I need to do anything special to get a replacement?
If we get the replacement and eventually find the phone, what do we do with the original phone?
We've sent a remote message to the phone, leaving my husband's number and we've also sent a remote lock. If the phone is found by someone, what does the remote lock do?
