    Now that we've tapped on General, you can see that we have a selection of six different options
    .
    First one is the 3D tilting effect, what this does, is when you tilt your phone, left, right, it tilts the back, so the child actually see's it moving as if they are looking into something. it is pretty cool effect, some parents and children like it, some parents don't. I have turned it OFF.Next, is Block the Back key, this stops the child from being able to use the Back key. I have it turned OFF as well, because we are teaching my son how to use the phone, in addition to have play games on it. However for my younger children, who are not yet ready to learn how to actually use a phone, we turn it ON, we do so because usually when they are playing a game, the phone is held like this.
