Thankfully, trading in your device for some cash, especially before new smartphones debut, is a pretty simple process when you take it one step at a time.

Dear Lifehacker, I'm getting on in life and at this point it seems unlikely that my credit card debts will ever be paid off in full. (I can barely afford the monthly interest repayments.) I also don't own much in the way of assets. So my question is: What happens if my assets are less than my debts when I die? Do I need to worry about my adult sons getting saddled with my debt?
