this is driving me bunkers. so i buy an unlocked i9500 in eBay from hongkong and everywhere on the box and on the phone itself it says i9500
but in download mode it shows up as SGH-i337 and also upon using the phone (stock) it randomly asks me to sync my AT&T contacts.

the SIM card that i used is not even AT&T. and also my attempt to install CWM via odin failed.

I guess your phone is not genuine.
it might have been packed in different package.
maybe.

You have an i337. It's simple as that. You have probably a rom installed that's based on a i9500 rom. So nothing to worry, you just need to look in the i337 section.

once you are sure (check also what FW version you have) you can flash I9500 cwm with odin.
Odin has nothing to do with what is already installed. (expected your drivers are well installed). CWM can be pushed in.

If download mode says that you have an i337 then you have an i337.

It seems you have a true I337 because of the bootloader infos but all the rest is messed up with tricks done by former owners.

So you must reflash a stock I337 fw to refresh everything. get it from sammobile site.

edit :
ro.product.model=SAMSUNG-SGH-I337

ro.product.brand=samsung

ro.product.name=jflteuc

ro.product.device=jflteatt
These are correct infos telling that your phone is a good I337 model.
