Upgrade question on iPhone

Recently my iPhone 4 was stolen, and luckily I was due for an upgrade. I chose to get the same phone, however now that I'm slowly filtering music, apps, etc. onto this new phone, I realized that it is only 8 GB. My old phone was at least 16 GB. Now I cannot fit everything onto this phone.

My question is, when you upgrade your iPhone, is it going to be the least amount of memory? Because that is not an upgrade. I'm not sure the exact amount of memory of my old phone, but I assume that AT&T can find that out. I just know it was at least 16 GB, and I'd like to get at least the same level of phone, instead of a worse one.

Unfortunately, the 8GB model is the only version of the iphone 4 AT&T has. When Apple came out with the iphone 4s, they quit making iphone 4 models with 16 or 32GB and AT&T's inventory of 16/32GB iphone 4's was sold out years ago.

Well I really wish the employee had told me that. I mean I would've spent more if I knew. I guess it's my fault for not making sure I knew everything, but I assumed it would be a phone of the same level. Do you think there is anyway that they would let me return this phone and purchase the 4S for $99? Or since I've been using this one for about a month, it's too late?

I actually Seen these phones on Ebay for around 200 dollars and i seen a iphone 4s 32 GB for around 300 so after all said is done you could get an iphone 4s for around 100 + or so

a caution also - buying from unverified sources can get you burned - as inthe recent news store of the person who purchased to "Apple" iphones from ebay and recieved a box with two washington red apples in it.
