    When I use a page template for the bp-mobile page, it's blank on iPhone. Only the actual content in the editor seems to show up.

    Duh, the plugin is essentially a theme—which can't see the custom page templates in my desktop theme. Got it. Now that I'm working in the right place (buddypress-mobile/themes/default), can I make a child theme? I feel icky editing default theme files...

    I was also wandering the same, but looking at the FAQ it says that you can edit the default theme.

    If you succeed in creating a child theme please share how you did it, I'm also interested. At the first look a child theme would need more work editing the plugin files than the default theme itself :-/

    Ability to create child themes would be totally awesome. Thanks @modemlooper for a super plugin (and themes) that this is. :)

    is there a way you can view the mobile theme through your PC browser for editing etc?

    Yes a user agent switcher. They are add-ons for Firefox and for Chrome Ultimate User Agent Switcher is pretty good.
