    No guarantees here, but this is what I would try:

    First go to 'Find my iPhone' app on another device and log in.
    Remove your iPhone from the devices list, assuming this is still possible after initiating a wipe.

    Then, plug your iPhone to your PC (where it's synced with iTunes) and make a back-up of the device.
    Keeping the internet OFF on both your iPhone and the PC, so neither can receive the 'wipe command' online.

    Good luck either way.
