You will be allowed to use the phone in order to contact a member of your family, friend, or somebody else who can help you get out.
If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might be allowed to wear your own clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail uniform.
When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process takes from 10 minutes to all day. In other words the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get let go.
