Can't help you with the phone thingie, but if you want to see what's in
a patch and be able to edit it nicely, I suggest you use meld.  It's a
python dual-pane GTK display, really nice.  Too slow for real coding (on
my machine that is) but real good for seeing what you changed.  Watch
out for use of Ctrl, Shift and Alt -- very handy.

Can use CVS as well, or you can use two source trees.
